Good and plenty to choose

I like very much the style of the cafe; you can go there for a nice breakfast, lunch or just a coffee. They have very nice smoothies and home made treats.

Has become our go to place for brekkie in Tonbridge (unless hanging when only a greasy spoon will do which this isn't) . Up market coffee house with a decent array of sweet or savory options . The rustic roll breakfast offerings are made with local bangers and my wife adores their ultimate cheese sandwich . Family friendly ,free papers... More

A welcoming cafe and good to have an independent choice rather than the usual chains. Nicely decorated interior with plenty of seating downstairs plus upstairs as well. Reasonable choice of food and drink however do think one needs to have plenty of change as rather expensive.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. The good points were that the service was quite friendly and that the quiche was good. However I did feel that £4.50 for a salad bowl with two small choices was excessive. To be honest the coleslaw was so hard that I couldn't eat it. That made a slice of quiche and small salad...

We visited this cafe last Sunday looking for tea and cake. We ended up eating some of their other food, as it looked so beautiful. The open rye sandwiches looked beautiful, as did the quiches. We ended up having a plate of the amazing looking salads, after we'd already enjoyed some delicious pain au chocolats and a some great coffee.... More

Nice place for a coffee and a chat but the service is mind numbingly slow! My friend ordered a latte and I had a tea, by the time her drink was ready I was half way through mine.

We're lucky enough to live just down the road from The Finch House and regularly treat ourselves to a weekend visit. It's cute and modern interior appeals to all, and the food never fails to impress! (Particularly the Ultimate Cheese Toastie with added ham!) We've taken many family and friends over the last few months too, all of whom agree... More

The place looks lovely and the stuff are very friendly. Lovely place to sit and relax with a cup of tea or even a proper meal. However, the smoothies are terrible. They just taste apple juice. We ordered a strawberry and a melon smoothie. Both just tasted apple juice. They were far from tasting melon or strawberry. REALLY BAD for... More

To discover this semi bistro / restaurant on the wettest day so far. Professional rain matched by the service and menu. We found Megan who clearly explained the in and outs and luckily said that I could have what could have last bottle of 'Owletts' Apple juice. Another delivery due to-day. Nice and pleasant atmosphere with the 'ambience' to go... More
