Atmosphere was great (felt like I was anywhere but Chatham), the breakfast was truly out of this world. We ate inside, but there was seating available outside also. Visited the rest rom whilst there, it was of a standard I would normally associate with higher end hotels (lovely and clean with individual towels for drying hands). Oasis is a great... More

Didn't even know this place existed, despite living in Chatham. Had the full English breakfast which was absolutely delicious! Great start to my birthday, and will definitely return.

I've been here a few times and on each occasion I come away thinking what an amazing little place this is! A secluded oasis tucked away from the grim and unpleasant Chatham High Street. Food is quality - where else in the Medway Towns are perfectly-cooked Eggs Benedict and similar dishes served as a breakfast/brunch option? The decor and fixtures... More

What a lovely surprise! This cafe is tucked away in Chatham High Street (the part you wouldn't normally venture up) The menu is varied and seems to cater for different diets. The food and drink is on the most part locally sourced which is always a thumbs up from me. I opted for the healthy breakfast with a glass of... More

Discovered this lovely cafe recently for lunch with friends. Good food, well presented. Our varied needs (gluten and dairy intolerance) were catered for and staff were friendly. A surprise find set back from the High Street. It was too cold for eating outside, but there is a lovely courtyard for al fresco eating in summer.

A cozy area to sit quietly, have a cuppa and relax. The food looked really tasty and was well presented. Definately worth a visit when you are in the area
