The flat white here is unbelievable, perfect temperature, size, and taste. They do a decent eggs Benedict too. A must visit for T Wellians who love coffee.

The Black Dog serves the best cortado I've had outside Spain. It's wonderful. It also serves Silver Needle tea for that afternoon treat. The carrot cake is almost as good as my mother's. The Eggs Benedict is as Eggs Benedict should be. Really love the vibe, too. It's indie and it's friendly and the clientele is mixed. There's nowhere else... More

Visited here for lunch with friend. Amazing, tasty food! Had halloumi salad and friend had butternut and feta salad! Good choice of veggie food! I had food envy as her salad had loads of topping! Will visit again soon

Visited this little coffeeshop after a day of walking around Tunbridge Wells. Coffee is great, Flat White is definitely recommended if you enjoy your coffee with a dash of milk. Cakes were also great, in fact probably the best cake I ever ate in a coffeeshop. Service is quick and friendly, there's free wifi and decor is, overall, warm and... More

I can't put my finger on it or explain in words but I just keep coming back to this cafe time and again. The food is excellent; breakfasts, club sandwich and snacks, the place is cosy and nice but it is the coffee that makes it. The flat white is good, but why spoil a good coffee with milk? Black,...

This place softens the blow of having moved from Australia to Tunbridge Wells. Best coffee in town, love the vibe of the place. Will keep coming back.

Lovely little place I'd not found before, guess I could be the only one left in tw not to have visited. Staff were helpful, and helped squeeze us in, was actually not too crammed so had plenty of space! Food well presented, great taste! Hot chocolate - OMG not had a good one for a long time - this one... More

Great coffee and good food, cakes look very tempting, service is friendly and quick, free WiFi as well. The only downside is the place is popular and I've had to wait for a seat on some visits but that's not their fault. I think they try hard and hope they stay in business
