Looking for somewhere to eat we settled on this cafe. Greeted by friendly staff, and seated. The menu was varied with specials on the board, although there were no prices shown.( on the board). We ordered an all day brunch, and a glass of house white, strange combination i know. For the price it was good value. The cafe was... More

Large prices and small portions. My girlfriend ordered a fairly pricey bacon sandwich and received two huge clumps of bread smothering two small rashers of fatty undercooked bacon. Although, the decor is nice and comfortable with a nice view, i'll give them that.

Went to the Turner Gallery to see, wait for it, the Turner Exhibition. But to start we needed starters so found this lovely little cafe just down the road. Looks a bit gloomy from the outside but don't let that fool you. Inside it is clean and odd though it sounds, sharp. Solid tables and chairs that don't wobble and... More

Went here with friends and my partner for a bite to eat. I had the wild salmon fish cakes and they were so delicious! The flavours were devine and all for a good price. They were a nice size too.

Popped in here for lunch - good selection of food, including for vegetarians. Friendly, attentive service, entertainment provided by the two people in the kitchen who were having a massive row! Burgers good, really tasty, and chips well cooked. Only drawback (and we found this a lot in Margate) was that they only take cash - be prepared!

We have been visiting this cafe for many years. We like the ambiance and particularly the All Day Breakfast. It is great location on the seafront. Look out for the infrequent jazz nights.
