Popped in there today for a spot of lunch, great service, great food (Cumberland sausage sandwich with a hint of English mustard!), very busy but quickly served, what's not to like?

There's always a warm welcome here. With a varied menu and specials board it's always quite hard to choose, although I must say the Eggs Benedict is my absolute favourite. There's a garden to sit out when the weather's fine. They cater for special occasions too.

Having frequented Cafe Max when living in the area, my husband and I headed back there prior to a family gathering. We arrived Sunday, around 1.30 as they were obviously near to closing, but they insisted we stayed and thoroughly enjoyed a light lunch, exactly what we were looking for. We were made very welcome and certainly not hurried. Yes,... More

I have just returned home following breakfast here with my sister and my mum. I have to say I was made very welcome on arrival and the same attention was paid to my family when they arrived. The table was beautifully laid out and the attention to detail was great with a little tie and a leaf with the napkin... More

Small quaint establishment with nice outside eating area. Staff always friendly. Popular with locals. Food and prices in line with most cafés. Menu varied, but quality is clearly linked to number of customers. Can vary from 2/5 to 4/5.

Cafe max is a charming little cafe right in the 'heart of benfleet' and serves appropriately priced lunch and breakfast food. Staff are charming, and the cooking is in full view. A lovely garden in the summer months.

Great cafe. We have always used this since it opened. Lovely garden too. Can be quite busy after the school run as Mums use it a lot. Cooked breakfast is the best in town. Lots of freshly made cakes if you still have room afterwards
