We visited for a quick lunch having not visited before and were more than pleasantly surprised. A cosy little nook of a cafe but with all the bells and whistles and lots of veggie options. When we visited it was packed to the eaves but service was still running faultlessly and with a smile. They were so busy they had... More

I am a big fan of using local trade and never more so than when deciding on a cafe to eat and/or drink. Eden offers a wide range from excellent breakfast, through lunch (notable fish finger sandwich!) to afternoon tea and cake which was the purpose of my visit this week. this is privately owned and it shows in how...

If there is a better selection of truly home-made food in Maidstone at a fair price, I'm yet to find it. Sandwich selection is classic but not boring, chilli is awesome, and they're lovely folk too!

Wow the service here has slipped! Young lady messed order up, I have experienced this previously with same server on a take away. It appeared to confusing to answer if there was a meat spag bol as opposed to only quorn option. I was advised to have the chilli as basically the same and not spicy so wouldn't know. I... More

Lovely place for breakfast with many options including a vegetarian combo. My partner loved the morning glory, a nice traditional English brekkie. Decent coffee. Helpful and smiley staff.

Highly recommended. I have had pasta dishes, jacket potatoes and an omelette here recently. Pesto pasta is very tasty as is the jacket with chilli. Very friendly staff and also willing to take telephone pre-orders to save you time.

We, Jo & Lisa, individually had the dream of running our own businesses one day.. That dream was united via a mutual friend.. With a love for food and all things natural, Eden was established in July 2006 and we've never looked back!!! What makes us special? Well, we believe in running a succesful business that makes everyone of our customer feel at home the second they walk in.. Our suppliers are local small businesses where possible and we insist on using quality fresh ingredients without compromise.. In June 2009 we relocated to a larger premise just 2 doors up with the capacity to seat 60 people! As from April 2010 we are licenced!! Just another string to our bow... In 2011 Lisa took over Eden .. Missing Jo but she has made herself into super mum!! Please do come in, and try our yummy food and homely relaxing atmosphere!
