Excellent as always

As a regular customer I would like to say that the standards of Indulgence never drop. On Wednesday this week I was there at a time when they were very busy. In fact I don't think there was a seat not taken, including the outside tables. There were only Lynn and one other member of staff on duty. I... read more

It is always lovely to get a review and especially when it is so complimentary and we value them equally whether it is from a first time customer or a valued regular customer. Lynn will be so happy to know that in your eyes her efforts to keep standards as high as possible are not wasted. So thank you for... More

Well, I have to say, we have heard the saying "A Hidden Gem" a few times before in relation to Indulgence but it is always nice to hear it again. Hidden we are, but it seems that you found it well worth finding us. Our cakes are all home made, i.e. on the premises and one can definitely taste the... More

Really nice place tucked away by steam railway. Lots of tables, papers to read and historical books on the town which was good. Food was lovely. Fella had rarebit and bacon and a cheese scone (obviously home made) and loved it. I had cream cheese and smoked salmon butty. The bread is doorstop and the filling was generous. Really good....

Well well! "A Smashing Sandwich". Thank you so much. They are smashing and filling and would keep most of us going for many an hour, especially with that lovely thick soft bread that we get from a local bakery. Welsh Rarebit, Cheese Scone and one of the Old Dairy Brewery's ales. Time for a lie down methinks after that. We... More

I've lived in Tenterden for 25 years and have eaten, or stopped for a coffee with friends, in most of the cafes and restaurants in the town at some point. The atmosphere and service in Indulgence has always been warm and welcoming, and the food always freshly prepared and cooked, and it is always delicious. Lynn's scones are legendary and... More

We came to Tenterden for the may fair and found this little tea shop. We ordered the cream teas and was surprised to find we had a choice of scones and not just limited to plain ones. This also included savoury ones as well if you wished. They were a lovely size and served with plenty of jam and cream.... More

Well, we are so glad that you found us and happy that you enjoyed the scones. We have 9 varieties of scone on a rotation basis and we look forward to welcoming you back to try a few more. It is surprisingly peaceful in the courtyard and a great sun trap, when the sun decides to come out. Kind Regards... More

On our way to prospect few locations for a future move - we stopped at Indulgence and loved the food, the staff, the atmosphere, the little terrace - a perfect retreat for a busy morning. But we'll definitely come again on a Sunday morning to spend more time and hopefully if we manage to move around the area we'll become... More

We`ve been to Indulgence quite a few times for a home-cooked breakfast, which are absolutely wonderful! I don`t eat meat myself, but there is a vegetarian option which is lovely. The coffee they serve is one of the best coffee`s we`ve tasted. We`ve also had lunch and afternoon tea which are worth every penny. The girls who work there are... More

Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful review and I apologise for not replying earlier.

So glad you loved the cake, which is made on the premises by Lynn or one of her assistants. As for the coffee it speaks for itself. We have may varieties of cake, so maybe you will come back and try another one in the future. Regards Barrington and Lynn Butler - Proprietors More

Well, thank you so much for your kind words.

Indulgence Cake & Coffee House is the perfect antidote to the chain coffee outlets which are spreading like a disease across this country.
