Lovely food and great staff. Hidden place I've never really noticed before but the sandwiches and coffees were good quality.

I visited recently for breakfast with a friend and have been several times before. It always serves really lovely food and the staff are always friendly and accomodating.There is a lovely walled garden out the back which is lovely on a summers day. A good variety of food ranging from breakfast lunch and dinner. Great little place, would highly recommend!

Not a bad way to break the fast, slow service but the food was ok. Plenty of options for a decent breakfast in Whitstable so perhaps shop around but it was ok.

Since I was in Whitstable at lunchtime I took the opportunity to try Howard's. The good reviews are well deserved. It has far more space than it looks from outside, especially when the weather is good enough for the back 'garden' (yard) to be open. All the food is home cooked and freshly prepared. I had an excellent wedge of... More

Since we live in Whitstable we are found at Howard's at east once if not many more times a week. The food is always delicious, the price is great and the atmosphere is totally relaxed and friendly. You can sit outside with your dog (water provided instantly) or upstairs with a cosy fire to warm you.

No doubt about it, this is the best breakfast in Whitstable. Lunch is pretty good too! Great welcome, friendly atmosphere. You can't go wrong here. Dogs and children also welcomed. Keep up the good work Howard!

Tucked down a side street in Whitstable this place is well worth visiting. Nice, friendly feel about the place coupled with decent quality ingredients clearly used means we'll definitely be back.

We've been visiting this great cafe restaurant for the last 3 years and it never fails to please. Staff are friendly and welcoming. It's down to earth and not that smart but the food is totally scrumptious and home made. Caters well for veggies, great breakfasts, brunches, delicious soups, tasty quiche with generous fillings, good range of salads, savoury dishes... More

ordered sausage baguette was Ok, but there was a side of limp lettuce leaves and a handful of crisps these did nothing to add to the dish and made it look unappetising, the table could have been cleaner as is was still sticky from previous occupant. the toilets only had a hand towel (well used) which is unhygienic these days.
