I came here with my fiancé on last saturday, and it was still as outstanding as it was at first: the food was great, the settings really nice (fresh flowers) and the staff was adorable. I didn't get why they got only a 4 in hygiene food rating... they deserve much better!

Popped in for a quick bite to eat and had a really good coffee and a fish finger sandwich with chips. Nicely prepared and cooked and the cafe itself had a good atmosphere. Liked it so much I had to try a brownie as well. Will definitely try this place again.

The price is higher for breakfast than the average, but it is definitely worth the price! The quantity is perfect (neither not enough nor too much) and you can really feel everything is homemade! Besides, the settings are very nice and the staff is lovely.

Had brunch today with my wife and daughter. Again very nice felt welcome and looked after and food was again fantastic. This is so what Maidstone needs. A little bit of relaxed class.

I have been to Living Cafe a few times and I've always been happy. Breakfast was really good, nice selection of food and happy to make something off menu for my littlest. It was fresh and tasty food. Lunch was also very appetising with a bowl of chicken and chorizo and. salad. My family also enjoyed their meal. Service was... More

My mum and I have been going to the living cafe for a few years now and always go back because of the great food. Unfortunately this is the second time we've been where the food and service has really gone down hill. We popped in on a weekday and it didn't seem that busy however there were only 2... More

I had to kill am hour last Thursday so went with a mate for a breakfast, both really enjoyed it. I had poached eggs with salmon on granary bread and he had bacon. Both were delicious. Reasonably priced and good service. We sat in the courtyard out the back to enjoy the sun and people watch.
