Great little Café in the center of Dorking.

Me and my girlfriend had a great experience stopping in for a toastie and drink. We were lucky to grab a window seat as it became available on arrival as it was very busy. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I Tried the sparkling Nettle juice which was surprisingly nice and my girlfriend... read more

I stopped here today for a bite of lunch. Lovely decor, seated next to the window I watched the passers by. Really friendly staff, grated chocolate on the best cappucino I've ever had! The food was very reasonable and delicious! The only down fall was the half hour wait for soup and salad but we'll worth the wait. I'll be... More

The constant buzz of this little hive of activity is brilliant, but it's the avocado on toasted sourdough - drizzled with chilli oil - that lures me back. It's quickly becoming my new favourite thing. :))

"Hidden gem" is, perhaps, a term overused by reviewers but in this case, situated on South Street, hidden it is not. But gem it most certainly is. A second visit by friend and I and we were again not disappointed. A three-course set dinner preceded by a welcoming glass of prosecco. And all for thirty quid! The starter of homemade... More

Reliable, friendly and always great quality food. Coffee is good. If you ever fell like a quick bite in a relaxed friendly environment- this is the place.

This is one of my favourite cafes in Dorking as it always offers delicious food that is freshly made. The coffee is to die for and it is one of the few places in the area where you can get a lunch that is fresh, healthy and delicious for an incredibly reasonable price.

I prefer the Dorking café to the one in Reigate (which is also very good) as it is so cosy, perfect now the weather is a bit chilly in the morning. Always manage to get a seat, just. Visited today and there were 20 people which was a bit of a squeeze. Lovely rich hot chocolate made with grated, Belgian... More

We were 'enticed' to divert here by the reviews on TA when in need of a good flat white coffee. Well we certainly found it - the coffee was excellent and worth a much longer diversion if required. The food looked very tempting too, but we had already had our lunch, so perhaps next time ...

Two Many Cooks has the best, freshest snacks of any cafe locally. It's so tiny that one has often to share with strangers, who often become friends.

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