I visited with two friends for lunch recently. The atmosphere is just lovely. Staff were so friendly and such a great menu to choose from. Food is soooo yummy and the Snickers Cake is literally the best cake ever. Most of all it's such good value for money. Would highly recommend and will 100% go back.

As we had half an hour to spare Frankie's Farm Shop was recommended and what a wonderful place. We arrived around 10.30am and it was nearly full with people enjoying their breakfast and we wished we had longer to stay and sample the food. The coffee was served efficiently and was tasted so good. In addition to this there is... More

Great little place and if you feel the urge you can stock up on plants for the garden. But we were here to sample the kitchen. Simple menu including salads, sandwiches, soups and some daily specials. We went for the welsh rarebit and the muffins with poached eggs, hollandaise and smoked salmon; really tasty although the muffin dish would have... More

I visited here today with my mum and dad and a friend. It was raining and so the cafe was absolutely packed as everyone was inside. We had booked (recommend you do as it is so popular) but they kindly found us a quieter table as one of our party had a hearing aid. The menu was varied with a... More

Been to Frankies a few times and each time I am amazed how totally relaxed and refreshed I feel after visiting. The food and drinks are excellent, the location is peaceful, relaxing and above all away from the hustle and bustle of town/traffic in Maidstone.

Stopped off on our way home from a drive to East Sussex, attracted by the sign on the main road, in particular the word "cake". Proof that we are getting old - stopping at a garden centre for coffee and cake. Decided on a scone, jam and cream – or is it scone, cream and jam. The debate rages, but... More

Beautiful fresh cooked food ( you can see the kitchen). I never leave without a fresh loaf of bread. Service so good, very pleasant staff always make you feel like old friends.

Lovely food and service. BUT sat outside and the wasps were a nightmare!! A shame because it spoilt what could have been a great family lunch outing. We did ask to sit inside and were told all the tables were booked. However most remained unused for the duration of our lunch! Don't think we will go again in wasp season!!

Love this place and so lucky to have it close by. Great coffee and amazing cakes - love the orange cake always so delicious. Great outside space for the kids too and always lovely things in the shop. That's not even mentioning the plants.

We often drop in here for a late breakfast or lunch. Service is very friendly, food is always delicious. The atmosphere is laid back and we always have a lovely time. Jess in particular deserves a shout out- she is super efficient, friendly and has a great memory, often referring to something we have talked about in a previous visit.... More
