Would love to review the food at this nice looking establishment however when we visited today (four of us) we asked if the waitress wouldn't mind arranging for the only spare table to be cleared. She said that they would not be able to clear it as it had all of the restaurants outstanding washing up on it as there... More

Been in several times before in the past 2 years and each time we have been more disappointed. Today's visit however seemed lacking. Coffee was bitter, I had a latte that contained thin milk rather than the thicker, silky milk you'd expect to find in a normal latte (I work in a coffee shop, trust me, I know). I had... More

My wife and I popped in twice while we were staying in Rye, the staff are all extremely friendly and our order was quickly delivered to our table. The cakes were fresh, tasty and home made which makes a very pleasant change from the chain restaurants. Well worth a visit, though beware as it does get very busy.

Good service, quirky, interesting seating. Tables not crowded in, so feels you have you own space. Keen polite young servers. Good range of fairly simple food. We find it a relaxing place to be.

We stopped in on a Sunday morning for a quick coffee while looking around Rye. Great little coffee shop if you can get a seat as it was populated by people who had either brought a book or the Sunday papers to read in full! Not great for customer turnover but we did find a seat at the back as... More
