Hi Jean Well, praise indeed. At this rate Lynn may have trouble getting her head through the door, but I agree with you wholeheartedly and her accolades are well deserved. I am glad you like the atmosphere as we always try to make it relaxed and friendly. I love the way that you describe Indulgence and it is lovely that... 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

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

From my home in California, I planned a visit to Sissinghurst, England where 15 friends would gather for a celebration. I wanted to have a nice cake but had no idea where I could get one that would be good enough to impress my friends. Using Trip Advisor, I settled on trying Indulgence Cake & Coffee House. I sent a...

Well, thank you so much for your kind words. On this visit you had two of our most popular cakes and on my reckoning you can come back at least five more times and have 2 different cakes each time before you have to start at the beginning again. The airfare would be prohibitive mind you, but it might be... More

Indulgence Cake & Coffee House is the perfect antidote to the chain coffee outlets which are spreading like a disease across this country. From the moment you are welcomed by the friendly staff you are experiencing service, cooking and above all coffee that are out of this world – certainly the best that Tenterden has to offer.

We visited Indulgence recently, not having been to Tenterden for a while, and were delighted to see how much Indulgence has changed under new ownership. It's back to being a really pleasant place to have a drink/snack/meal. We had an excellent light lunch - very friendly and efficient service too. We shall definitely make a beeline for Indulgence whenever we're... More

Really surprised at the previous about dog accessibility, as my family and I use this café every time we visit Tenterden with our dog meg. Meg's a border collie and therefore isn't the smallest of dogs. There is a specific seating area for people with dogs, but sometimes it's full so we sit outside The staff are always friendly, even...

Thank you for your lovely message. We certainly remember Meg and thank her for bringing you to Indulgence. We always try and accommodate dogs when we can, but of course on the warmer days we often have customers sitting outside with their dogs especially as the area is a Sun Trap on the days that the Sun comes out.
