Its obvious that this has been done up recently, very comfortable and excellent coffee. There are a lot of coffee shops in Rochester so picking one isn't easy, although I'm sure most are ok. For me it's always good to go for an independent - much more fun than the chains.

I have been a regular customer at this coffee shop for quite some time. The coffee and cakes are amazing and the atmosphere is just as good! Abby and Jackson who run the shop are extremely welcoming and all the other staff are good aswell. Would never drink coffee anywhere else, even beats the big names on the high street!!

One of the very first coffee shops in Rochester high street with very friendly staff and very good quality coffee. Cakes are fine too but not the best (but i am being picky). still a place i never hesitate to go to. Very cosy too.

We have visited the Rochester Coffee Company on several occasions and have always found the staff very pleasant and the coffee very good. Ideally located close to the short stay ‘Cathedral’ car park, the premises sit opposite the Norman Cathedral located across the High Street, and if you are fortunate you will be treated to the sound of bells being...

Comfy seats, quick and polite service and wonderful coffee to boot, what more could one ask for. Next time we visit we will plan to stay there longer and have something to eat.

We have visited many of the coffee bars in Rochester over the years and this is now our regular haunt. Why? Great Coffee, good food and the friendliest of staff. Your coffee/tea is ALWAYS bought to your table and all the staff are unfailingly polite. Jackson & Abi run the team very professionally and remember their regulars. The shops on... More

I only ended up having coffee here because Deaf Cat was busy or wasn't open. At both time the coffee was dreadful. Once it was so hot it burned my tong the other time it was so week I could hardly taste any coffee. If anything this place needs some staff that actually knows how to make a proper coffee... More

After trawling the high street for a coffee shop with a spare sofa (as meeting friends) I came across the Rochester coffee company which was virtually empty and had plenty of sofas. Unfortunately I had a pram and there was a short steep set of steps in the entrance. I waited at the top for a couple of minutes while... More
