My wife found a wee something stuckbon the side of her cup... these things happen.. but when we looked underneath the cup it looked like it had not been touched for awhile. When this was pointed out to the staff... More

This was a great spot for a snack while we wandered around Hythe. We sat in the little courtyard outside, a nice sheltered but sunny spot full of greenery. Our food was good (hot chocolates, cappuccinos, a ploughman's platter to share, and cakes) and the service was very friendly and helpful. One of the best parts of our visit was... More

We always head here when in Hythe throughout the year, The Nutmeg is great, warm and cosy and food is delicious. Can get very busy so would recommend to go early to avoid disappointment. We've never not had good grub...

A very bland looking ciabatta - a garnish would have made it look more appetising and worthy of the price. A popular cafe though with some lovely homemade cakes.

We decided to go here for our Sunday breakfast/brunch. We got here just after 10 and got the second to last big table by the window. There is a good variety to choice from to your traditional fry up to eggs benedict. The food was lovely and tasty and not greasy and the staff were nice and friendly. The only... More

Have visited this tea room on many occasions and have always had good service and food, but is a bit pricy. The staff are friendly. However this time I noticed a dog was brought in and I don't think dogs should be allowed inside where food is served as its not very hygienic. I will visit again and hope no... More

Good place to stop and have a coffee. Cakes can be a bit hit and miss. Nice atmosphere. £10 minimum spend before can pay by credit card.
