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.

Been here for Sunday morning breakfast a few times now and the breakfast is very good. Sadly the sausages are cheap, I think you can tell a lot about a cafe by the quality of their sausages and these ones are pink meatless little things, they really let down the rest of the plate.

We always read the menu at Cafe Solo as we sit in traffic in Wincheap. Its always a treat when we get the chance to go in. The menu is varied, brilliant breakfasts and lunches. Service is efficient and friendly and the portion sizes are big. Good value for money, especially the daily specials. The coffees are wonderful.

Great place stop on the way into or out of Canterbury. Good food, large portions, well priced and cooked fresh. Has a car park at the rear so excellent if you find yourself in slow traffic at wincheap and decide to pop in for a cuppa while it clears

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
