Gotta say, this cafe is fantastic. The food is always good, the staff always friendly and helpful, and the place is spotlessly clean. We've taken to eating here whenever we visit Canterbury and have never been disappointed, other Cafes could learn a lot from this place.

They open at 8, even on a Sunday and have a full range of breakfast options. The staff are very friendly and the food is well cooked and nicely presented. It is a popular place and by the time we left at 9.30 it was filling up. Their Sunday roasts are good too!

I am working just around the corner from the cafe solo and even though it is a longer walk than other places to eat, it is worth it! There are many different food selections for breakfast lunch and dinner and the quality of food is excellent! The staff are all very friendly and you are always greeted with a smile... More

1st time we've been here in a year or so as we moved away. Always makes you a it nervous in case things have slipped in the time between visits. It hasn't. Service, food and value were spot on as always. 5 stars all round. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

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.
