You wander from one room to another to find a comfy chair to enjoy a coffee or indeed a homemade light lunch. Good value excellent service a touch of the past

Just the place to stop when shopping for an excellent cup of coffee and pastry. Very down-to -earth and relaxing with couches and papers or a spectators view of shoppers passing by. Interesting décor with apothecaries labelled drawers. Very popular with locals.

This is a very unique place to relax with excellent coffee, or you can choose from the wide selection of food, if you want a little more. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced, try the chunky toast, very simple but excellent, and the crepes always go down very well. Service is excellent, quick and always very polite.

Had a very nice relaxing afternoon here drinking tea and reading the papers. The decor with all the comics plastered across the ceiling is swishy however it could do with a bit of a clean or a duster flung around a bit. Staff weren't particularly welcoming but they're efficient and I think the place could do with air conditioning or... More

Visited this morning. Hard uncomfortable chairs for some of our party - although we managed to find something a bit more comfortable for my 87 year old grandad. At 10.30am not even able to offer 2 fruit scones - however when the 1 arrived we were quite pleased as it was definitely not home made and had obviously arrived in... More

A quaint cafe in the centre of rye serving light bites and cakes. Pleasant, efficient service. They are popular, so grab lunch early to avoid the choices being limited.

Holidaying again in the area and we knew exactly where to head for! We love the old frontage, the quirky interior, the helpful staff and delicious food. One of the lunchtime specials - Beetroot and Brie on chunky toast was delicious, as was the Brie and Grape Panini. Finally, we couldn't resist sharing an enormous serving of Coffee and Walnut...
