The Cupcake Cafe is a wonderful find nestled in the heart of the old town Margate Kent, it affords an informal relaxed atmosphere. This cafe is always busy and at weekends you may have to wait for a table. From soups, local sausages and amazing cakes and excellent teas and coffee's this cafe offers good quality at an amazing price.

Since the CCC in Margate's old town has been taken over its has had the life sucked out of it! The menu reads well but when you get it is really tasteless & dull, not that the menu has changed much, maybe different ingredients? The presentation on the Plates could also be looked at? The Cup cakes; still some of... More
