I have a baguette from the specials menu once a month & they are really first class. There is normally a choice of five, some hot. The food is always fresh and tasty & you will find fillings that you will never find elsewhere! There is also a selection of fantastic French pastries! Wonderful!

Forget the chain down the road - this is a little haven. Privately owned by a very caring and friendly owner who takes a personal interest in his customers. Classic French baguettes and pastries etc. A delightful little courtyard at the back - a great place to meet your friends for lunch.

The best place this side of the Channel to enjoy REAL French patisserie! Lovely staff, all very friendly, and excellent coffee too. The lunchtime baguettes are a joy. Love this place.

This is not your usual cafe but one with unusual dishes with a Gallic flavour. Well worth visiting for a snack lunch.

This became my true saviour when i recently experienced Canterbury, a small but excellant flavoursome menu for a lunch stop with a great specials board also worth checking out. It does not stop there as the entrance through the pattisserie will have you staying for that course of fine pastries on offer. Pleasant and helpful service from the staff make... More

As I speak French, this is a charming café to practice my language skills in whilst eating traditional French cuisine. There are always daily specials and the outside area is lovely in the sunshine. Café St Pierre, j'adore !

Lovely pastries, relaxed atmosphere, and an opportunity to practice speaking French with the patron -- though not, unfortunately, with every member of staff! The café is in St Peter's Street (an extension of the High Street), hence the name. Recommended.

Have popped in here several times over the best couple of months as there is a lovely courtyard garden at the back, however we were not largely impressed by the quality of the coffee. Hopefully it was just an off day as we love coming here for bread and pastries.
