The last couple of visits have been very good. The staff have been attentive and helpful which is good, as on a previous attempted visit after 10 minutes we got up and left as we were not even acknowledged. The menu is varied so even veggies get a choice. The breakfast is good, plenty on the plate and well cooked.

In the past I have found Googies to be a bit disappointing, with stand-offish staff and rubbish service so I'll admit that even when friends have raved about it, I haven't really wanted to go back. But yesterday, with a raging hunger and a tad hungover, my boyfriend and I decided to give it another go and wow, I'm so... More

We visit Folkestone fairly regularly for walks along the coast and visit Googies almost every time. The food is always great, lots of veggie choices for me and hubby enjoys the meaty options. (I would recommend the veggie Moo D blue burger). 3 varieties of hot chocolate are to die for (milk, dark or white). Huge battered onion rings, not... More

Googies is a great place to go for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a gorgeous hot chocolate. The menu is fantastic ranging from tea and toast to steak and a cocktail. The prices are great and the staff knowledgeable.

Googies was recommended by local friends and one evening we decided to try it. Let me tell you that the burger was one of the best I ever had, you could really taste the freshness of the meat. Service was friendly, and the two guys on Thursday evening were very informative about food quality and their special evenings during the... More

Food good and nicely presented. Had a fussy eater with us (!) and the waitress was happy to order them what they wanted rather than something on the menu. Portion sizes very good. Will return and have already eyed what we would order next time. Cakes look yummy too, didn't see them until we was leaving :-(

I always eat here whenever visiting family, who live on the old High Street. I live in NYC, so I truly appreciate local, quirky eateries and coffeeshops. On both occasions we had good service and got our food delivered quickly, I think it just depends what time of day you go and how busy they are. My grilled haloumi salad... More

If you are looking for a funky place to visit that supports local produce and artists. (So long as you are in no rush), then this is the place for you. The burgers are superb, and the home-made tomato sauce is divine! They should most probably issue tables with a buzzer/bell, as the service is terribly slow, and you have... More

I really liked this place when I visited the first time but this time it was rather disappointing, food was not as good as I remembered. Service was slow and they didn't ask how our food was, had to flag waiters to get them to come over. For the amount of money it was it was not worth it. Hopefully... More
