Jason, owner/chef takes real pride in his work. I came 2 days running, excellent coffee, beetroot salad and cinnamon toast day 1, in house smoked Brie with homemade pickle served with crispy fresh coleslaw. And I wasn't made to feel out of place!

Great little deli in beautiful Minnis bay, home made cured meats and various other deli produce, excellent sandwiches and the odd special. I had a pulled pork stroganoff and it was superb. I visit regularly.

I have visited this amazing little place twice now, the first time I visited with my wife and we stumbled upon it only because The Minnis has misinformed us about their service times. we had a breakfast each and a platter and I can honestly say it was some of the finest cured meats and breakfast I have ever eaten....

After being told that The Minnis have stopped serving food on the hottest day of the year at 1:45. Which was ridiculous they clearly could not cope. We attended Curiously Kentish..... Attentive host and the food was served quick and was so tasty.... The best club Sandwich I have ever had. Very pleasant place. Will definitely be recommending and attending... More

The food here really has to be seen and tasted to be believed! Everything is home-made from home-grown and home-cured ingredients. The scotch-eggs are the size of tennis balls, and are a meal in themselves!

The food was not only fantastically delicious but extremely reasonable, Service was outstanding with a lovely chilled and relaxed atmosphere , being surrounded by the passionately home made smoked and deli products was an added bonus and a foodies heaven :))
