Good for coffee and cake or a light lunch

Nice coffee and homemade cake. Not much room to sit down though so you can often skip going in because it's too full!

Two Many Cooks is small...but perfectly formed. It has a rustic interior with a mixture of separate tables and large shared one. Either way, I had an extremely tasty toasted sandwich and a pot of tea and was able to chill out for a while. Every time I use an independent cafe / restaurant I remind myself that, aside from...

Coffee is lovely, pâté even better but what is really outstanding is the lovely cooks that serve you. Not only are they charming and dressed in such a lovely blue tee shirts that coordinate with the cafe they create a relaxed ambience which means you want to return

I ordered the wild mushroom and thyme soup. It came with good home made focaccia and was reasonably priced. Service was very friendly, efficient and welcoming. I will definitely return as all the food options look very inviting.

A really nice place to stop for a bite to eat, a nice cup of tea and friendly efficient service. Not the widest range of sandwiches but they are all top notch. Fresh bread, good quality ingredients and good service. The place is clean and the staff friendly without imposing on you. I often stop as a little personal treat... More

This is, for my money, the best coffee in Dorking hands down. It's a small place and gets busy, especially at weekend - if it's sunny, there are tables outside and it's nice to watch the world go by. The menu is good (short but with some very tasty options) and they use a lot of artisan / local products.... More

Excellent coffee, great service and delicious gluten free cake that makes me feel just a little less guilty for my indulgence....
