Delicious afternoon tea dainty sandwiches and cakes as well as tasty scones with jam and cream. Children offered more suitable drinks other than tea! Offered to box up our leftovers for us which was very thoughtful. Friendly and efficient service. Lovely clean environment Would definately visit again

Stopped here for a coffee and pastry this morning. We were served by a friendly (and rather entertaining) barista. Coffee was good (so we had two!). Toilets were clean and very nicely done, if that's your thing...

Popped in here for a little pit stop during a little stroll around the town. Lovely little place, good atmosphere. Staff are sometimes a little off, not quite rude but they seem to want to be elsewhere. A tad expensive though, we ordered two slices of cake, a hot chocolate and a tea, which came to about £14. The same... More

It was such a lovely afternoon tea, very friendly staff and nothing was much trouble. The selection was really good and one of the best latte I have drunk. We had children with us and although there was noit much for children they have cared for them too.

I started following Rochester coffee on facebook and noticed they done afternoon tea ( which me and my mum can't get enough of ) as a bonus they was doing a 25% off deal if you booked before Friday! Table was reserved for us and was seated as soon as we arrived. Quick service but wasn't rushed, we had a... More

We booked a cream tea with groupon. The staff were very attentive and the cream tea really nice and a glass of fizzy just finished it off, all in all a lovely afternoon.

We bought a Groupon voucher bringing the cost of afternoon tea here down to under £6 per person and on that basis I recommend it and would return. Each person gets three small sandwiches (ham, tuna, egg), a warm scone with cream and a pot of jam, a share of 6 miniature pastries and either tea or (excellent fresh) coffee,... More

I have visited Rochester Coffee Co long before Costa was opened in Rochester, and I used to tend to avoid it because it always got so busy you couldn't move in there. It's a shame that the mainstream coffee shops dominate over independent business, but admittedly Rochester Coffee Co has added a lot to it's menu in response which has... More
