Excellent place for an afternoon break with cakes, muffins, scones and tea or coffee. Friendly personnel, quality food and moderate pricing make this a pearl on High Street.

Lovely Café, great staff situated in beautiful surroundings of Rochester old Town. Can guarantee a good coffee or tea and particularly recommend the scones with cream, and jam although there are also many savory items to choose from. Something that's always important to me is that the cafe very clean cups and saucers immaculate and WC facilities and baby changing... More

I've only marked this down 2 stars because the service was slow and tables were not cleared quickly. The drinks and food were fine but more attention to detail needs to be made. Seating is quite limited and the bar stool area near the door was cluttered with other items (outside sign etc) and not really usable. The tables are... More

Popped in here late afternoon for some cake & a drink. Not too busy, nice feel to the place, decent music playing quietly, and good range of cake options! Cake was nice, good range of drinks and other refreshments. No complaints. Would visit again.

One word - Excellent. Huge choice of delicate sandwiches, scones, little petit fours and macarons, cream and jam. All served with little bottles of prosecco and tea or coffee. Wonderful service, delicious food and excellent price. Will be making this a regular trip for us!!

I had a series of meetings at this cafe. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The coffee was good and reasonably priced. The cakes looked lovely although I didn't try any. There are comfy sofas and tables and chairs. I was quite surprised at how busy it was which did make it difficult to hold the meeting at times... More

We stopped for a light lunch in what looked a nice coffee shop. We walked in and had to ask if there was a menu and were told 'the food's all in the fridge behind you'. So not fresh food (apart from a small selection of cake in the window) and not very friendly.

I come here only for coffee which is great. There are also cakes, biscuits and sandwiches to choose from and you can sit outside of the shop, the opposite of the Rochester Cathedral.
