Quite a find - an independent, friendly, warm and welcoming station café. Not a national chain and all the better for it. A pleasant place to stop for a coffee or a smoothie and a bite of lunch. Reasonably priced too. Really good atmosphere -...More

This was a really surprising find at the station - most station coffee shops are a bit naff and run by a chain - not this place. The staff are really friendly and the prices reasonable and the food (I didn't eat there) looked really...More

Travelled by train to Margate for a day out and stopped for coffee and pastries here. What a gem of a place! Nothing like your average station facilities at all. Comfy sofas and low tables as well as dining tables and chairs. A great menu...More
