We visited this cafe with the family, the food was truly amazing and very good for the price. The portions are a good size and there specials are delicious. Good atmosphere very impressed.

This is not your usual greasy spoon': the staff are efficient but very cheery. The food is above normal cafe fare. The plum crumble is something else! I always come here now. There are other (very good) cafés, but this place is a cut above. Highly recommended.

Don't get me wrong the food is ok if a little pricey & they didn't get my order quite right (was missing a sausage from the breakfast) it wasn't overly busy but some staff sitting at a table & the rest were truly miserable looking. I won't be stopping here again.

We go to this cafe regularly for tasty, cheap, basic meals, great tea and coffee and quick cheerful service. Always busy and full of people from all walks of life. My favourite thing about this place is that they give you a little dish to put your used tea bag in ... This makes me happy:)

Having had several meals at different times of the day and year, I can say that this cafe is consistent with the quality of its food. An enjoyable meal in friendly surroundings. Staff are efficient and helpful. Worth a visit if you are that side of town.

I've visited Cafe Solo a couple of times in the past (usually when I venture to the huge Morrisons next door), but never thought to review it before! I was having my car serviced a couple of miles down the road, and thought I'd kill a couple of hours by walking the dog into Canterbury (he goes everywhere with me!)... More

I go here probably once or twice a month. Much better than most 'caffs' with a good menu range that they deliver on consistently well. Good car parking. Good, handy, location on the way to and from lots of places us locals go to get chores done. Cafe Solo delivers decent food at a decent price promptly and with good... More
