This cafe is a great place to eat. We like to start the day with scrambled eggs on toast served with a smile. I cannot comment on the main meals but judging by the number of patrons partaking, the chef must be doing something right.

Since moving just down the road from Cafe Solo a couple of months ago I've been to the cafe around 10 times. Each time I've had excellent food and friendly and quick service.

Had breakfast here many times. Staff are friendly and efficient and there is a good atmosphere. Only reason it was not 5 stars is because of the cheap quality sausages. Change to a better sausage and it will be 5 stars. Must go and try a dinner soon as what others were eating was looking and smelling lovely.

A cafe that does good English breakfasts and Traditional English dinners, e.g Pies and Vegetables. Friendly and effigment staff. Relaxed and down to earth atmosphere. Light and clean inside and free parking for about 8 cars or you could park on Wyncheap road( adjust your wing mirrors or you could lose them). Good place for families,reasonably priced.
