Usual story; lot's of cafes, lots of nice looking coffee machines. Alas, not a barista in site. Fortunately, Proper Coffee has bucked this trend and seem to be really honing their coffee making skills. My advice would be, if you are in Margate and gagging for a good coffee, then look no further!

There is a notice to say that the prices have gone up because the coffee provider put their prices up too! Hilarious. Americano wasn't that good. If... More

I've been here a few times now and they have never disappointed. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the place itself is comfortable with the option of stools, chairs or sofas. I've had lunch, cakes, coffees, teas, and hot chocolates from here and they're always well made, hot and full of flavour. You can bring dogs in too, which I... More

This was our choice for our first coffee of the day prior to moving on from Margate. We were rewarded with a very good flat white, served with a smile. We would certainly return here on a future visit.

I have been wanting to try this place for sometime and was not disappointed when I called in with my husband mid Saturday afternoon for a late lunch. We both ordered the meatball sandwiches which were extremely tasty. I enjoyed my coffee and my husband also took away a slice of sponge cake to eat at home, which he aid... More
