I choose to drive all the way over here rather than going somewhere close to my house in Margate even when I have a horrific hangover. The staff are so friendly, they do the best milkshakes and hot chocolates and it's really cheap.... More

Had a great meal here. Listen up! It's not cordon bleu! It's English cafe food! Try the chicken curry and chips ..,, I know it's wrong! And they're happy to swap things around, like beans for salad, so it's all good. :)

Myself and some family visited here this morning for a hangover breakfast and it certainly lived up to its fab reputation. Very clean, friendly and happy staff. Enjoyed what I had to eat and drink.

We thought it would be nice to have a good breakfast before our long trip home and we were not disappointed. Very helpful staff and food to suit all with a good selection of breakfasts available. This cafe is very popular with locals and visitors alike. Give it a look when u are there.

Stopped in and had breakfast. The cafe itself is very clean and customer service was great. Food was ok and edible but mostly deep fried quite heavy and fatty. Meat not of great quality (cheap sausages and cut of bacon).

This cafe is just an ordinary cafe, that although kept very clean its food is basic and nothing outstanding.The helpings are average size and not for those with a big appetite and the coffee is not the best iv'e tasted.

Thank colin g
