I went here for a little snack in the afternoon since I always pass by it but never had the time to actually stop and eat here. I'm glad I did! From the outside, it looks like just a small space for take away but in reality, there's a whole room in the back along with a charming outside space... More

I absolutely love the cakes and pastries...the clafoutis melts in your mouth, the european cheesecake an absolute dream! I haven't tried the sandwiches yet but they look delicious! The owner is a french man, very lovely and funny. If you want a really tasty dessert this is the place!

This is a busy little cafe, despite being fairly small in size. It's easy to see why. The staff are vey friendly and the cakes, coffee etc are top quality. It's also run by a very traditional Frenchman - you could almost imagine Michel on a bike with onions around his neck - which adds to the atmosphere. The fact... More

Long been a customer of Cafe St Pierre. Some of the best sandwiches in Canterbury, and amazing coffee. Always friendly and welcoming. Just make sure you get in early to get a seat!

It was easy to kid myself that I had just stepped off the Eurostar and was enjoying a petit dejeuner in Paris with the added bonus of a good value Canterbury establishment rather than a price inflated Parisien cafe. Delightful!

On the corner of a side street,tucked away at the quieter end of Canterbury one could be mistaken if you thought you had stepped through some sort of wormhole and popped out into a pettit village in the heart of France. This is a truly authentic little French bistro.With a welcoming " bonjour" from the obviously French owner as you... More

Chill out in this delightful corner café, with a pretty sun-trap of a back garden. Food prepared to order, and coffee with a distinct continental flavour. From the hustle-bustle of the city outside, this is a welcome haven of peace and tranquillity (and good food!)

We visited here for our desert after a meal elsewhere. My friend knew of the place so we went. The aff are delightful and helpful. The whole place feels like I was in France (as I actually was two days previously) the cakes were superb. I had a raspberry roulade that was lovely, served with an iced orangina. We sat... More
