What a nice change to all these fish & chips shops und pubs. This place is truly special. Great food. One remark: I had the impression that tables where not numbered and therefore waiters came outside yelling the dishes name. As a non-native speaker not easy to understand, quite annoying and therefore maybe better to just come straight away to... More

We get the odd bad review like this from people who seem to have only ever eaten in Folkestone and no where else in the world. They inevitably then do rave reviews of our main competitors. It all gets rather boring these personal attacks, maybe getting a life would better suit you. More

We stayed in a Folkestone hotel for one night but because the hotel breakfast reviews were poor we used Tripadvisor to check out local places for breakfast. Googies came out on top so off we went on Sunday morning at about 10.30, 4 of us and a dog. Very welcoming, great breakfast and outstanding coffee, there is a bar in... More

We live locally but don't usually go to Folkestone, we were in Folkestone for The Body Shop. Decided to try for some lunch somewhere and picked Googies. The staff were friendly, fast service but not intrusive. The food was of an excellent standard, we had poached eggs with pulled pork, yum! Would highly recommend and we will definitely be visiting...

Man and two teenagers thoroughly enjoyed lunch in somewhere else other than a fast food outlet with an initials as it's logo. The ambience was cool, the choice was greater, the music was apt as it was charivari, the service was far more personal and the price was not far different. Apart from we left full up not needing more... More

We came to Googies in a bit of a mood after our car broke down, but we lightened up eventually, not the least due to the very helpful and friendly staff, which we bothered with several questions and requests. I had a Double-Choc cake, which was really good, and my partner had a salad, which she also enjoyed.

Visited Googies a few weeks ago on one of our hottest days yet - the staff were really attentive and friendly and the food was just amazing! So fresh and tasty, will definitely be going back. Beats the big chains like Frankie & Bennys any day - excellent value for such good quality food. Finally somewhere that does a burger... More

Have eaten at Googies several times - for breakfast, just coffee, and dinner. ALWAYS delicious and entertaining. Have taken teenage children with me who also love it - something for everyone. Eggs Florentine, burgers (both veggie and meat) all brilliant - have never had room to sample a dessert, but there's always next time......
