Best cafe in Dorking by far

Especially love the food. Lots of lovely home made and healthy dishes to choose from. Coffee by far the best in Dorking. Very popular so can often be full.

Love this restaurant, food is home made using many interesting ingredients. Lovely atmosphere, friendly service, also enjoyed the Reigate branch. Love the Chalk Hills bread and locally sourced produce.

This scrumptious little cafe offers well made espresso drinks and very tasty sandwiches. We also had a piece of the moist and rich chocolate cake which was a touch flavourless, but lovely in its texture with great frosting. It's quite small, so you more than likely will have to grab your food or drink to take away. But it is... More

WE went here often and tasted lots of great food.WE often sat outside and the food was brought to us! Everything is homemade and we loved the eggs(Dippy) and the soldier toast! The tea for two is large and the desserts are wonderful! The staff goes out of their way to make you feel special! Loved every visit we made!

Nice position and if you get a window seat you can watch Dorking go by. Coffee is nothing to write home about but it's a nice place to be and the cakes, sausage rolls etc are delicious.

We eat there once in a while and enjoy their soups if vegetarian that day, salads and cakes. The staff are helpful and friendly. It is not very cheap but tasty using local produce sometimes, so nice for a treat.

I have been to Too Many Cooks on a number of occasions now, and have never been let down. The cafe is small, but very nicely done in a 'country chic' sort of way. The staff are always friendly and accomodating, although sometimes lack knowledge of the local produce that is being used. The bread is from Chalk Hills Bakery... More

The Staff are very helpful and can give you information about catering for weddings and party's. They can make cakes for special occasions! The Seating is small and you have to be lucky to find a space, come... More

Skinny flat white and a toasted sourdough ham & cheese with their own tomato pickle chutney - no cafe/restaurant can beat this in Dorking. Oh did I tell you that the service is great and you get a smile.
