Really excellent coffee. Good choice of coffees and teas to buy and take away, some of which come with a serious price tag...for a cuppa.

Excellent hot chocolate - best in town, uniquely made and delicious to drink. Nice atmosphere and great location. You must visit here if you need a hot drink.

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.

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
