Delightful place for a cuppa and a spot of lunch. Best cheese on toast, the chilli jam pairing is devine. Thanks again for a lovely place to come sit and eat while in Margate.

A small but fun cafe with great coffee and a small but delicious selection of cakes. This cafe typifies the English tea shop of years ago. Well worth checking out.

The staff here were amazing. So friendly and welcoming. The food is great value for money. My husband had egg on toast for breakfast and was given huge doorstep slices. Lovely place, really nice atmosphere. Definitely recommend it.

Nice cheese and onion toastie came with a good side salad. Sat outside in the sun and stayed to have some wine. A bit on the expensive side but it has a relaxed vibe that makes you want to stay a little longer.

Hi! Unfortunately we do not offer an 'Afternoon Tea' I'm afraid. However, we do have lots of lovely tea and gorgeous cakes on offer all day every day. Hope to see you soon, Team Cupcake :)
