"Their bacon sandwiches are the best in town!" ringing endorsement from my kids so won't go anywhere else with Rob 11, Cha 9 and... More

Black Dog, was recommended to us by locals who told us we could expect great coffee and breakfast. They weren't wrong. I will admit to being a coffee snob and was overjoyed to be served a smooth long black just the way I like it. The service was friendly and relaxed, with staff happy to answer my questions regarding the... More

They really have: this place has finally nailed the perfect coffee shop experience. Excellent table service; food that is cooked perfectly every time (I go every other day); the best coffee I've had to date. Love this place!

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
