Fresh and Easy is a fabulous place to sit outside drink coffee and watch the world go by, the service is impecable and the management are faultless. The selection of cakes are something out of Alice in Wonderland. 5 stars

I don't really like leaving negative reviews but on two occasions The service has left a lot to be desired. I like this place, light and airy and lots of space, great for meeting friends for coffee. One morning we were not able to get in as we were told the coffee machine had broken and the door remained locked.... More

A customer and a member of staff were talking away in french and completely ignored us. I moved down the counter and tried to make eye contact with the staff member. Completely ignored... More

I popped in today with three members of my family. The service was in disarray. We waited to order for 5 minutes whilst the owner ( I think) talked with two french customers, ignoring us completely. When finally served, the member of staff did not seem to know what he was doing. When the coffees/teas were served the crockery &... More

We love this place- gorgeous, fresh and imaginatively produced food. Whether you are going in for a coffee and amazing cake or lunch, the menu is superb. I noticed recently that you can now take in your own wine which is perfect! Lovely outside area where you can watch the world go by.

Once again I have to mention just how good this restaurant is! Not only has it the best atmosphere around, but a lot of people don't know that on Saturday it is open in the evening producing an complete cavalcade of delicious delicacies, stimulating steak, succulent seafood, and many more exotic dishes . Also for the people of Deal ,... More

Oooh la la... What a gem of cafe ... Totally delightful and pleasingly quirky!!!! Had the moules and frites and they were deliciously authentic .. My mum had a mega lasagna which also was delicious ... The meringues are to die for so is the hot chocolate that you make to your liking adding the chocolate pieces ... Great value... More
