I only had few hot chocolates in my life, but I had to try theirs due to the excellent reviews. I did enjoy it, we also tried their coffee (chocolate mocha) and purchased chocolate from them. Everything was delicious. They offer milk chocolate and dark chocolate drinks, they also have soy milk.

Ismail does a fantastic variety of excellent teas and coffees. Probably the best tea in Tunbridge Wells. The food is also good - we had very nice quiches and fritatas and salads. The cafe shares premises with a camping and hiking store, without either encroaching on the other. The building has a lovely old stone columned frontage and outdoor seating.... More

I once fell over in the street and hobbled into this café for a cup of tea. They were so kind; the tea was delicious and they would not charge me. I returned with friends and it was just as good an experience. Lovely, infused teas.

I took my two daughters (15 and 11) in for a late lunch and a hot chocolate on a Saturday afternoon. The staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful. The hot chocolate, I have it on good authority from the girls was AMAZING. They loved it, though the youngest had to have two glasses of water with hers (rather... More

This place roasts and blends its own coffees. It is not cheap but really good. The coffees are always fresh and perky, the cakes, salads and quiches moreish, and the Hot Chocolate is worth travelling for. The latter is a glass lined with either melted milk or plain chocolate, filled with hot milk with yet more chocolate - in form... More

I regularly go here and the coffee is excellent. Cake looks fab but so far have resisted! Great having the outside seating and perfect as a people watching venue with coffee in hand ... can't wait for spring/summer to return (but I'll be back way before then :))
