“Great prices and good solid cafe food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

No the food's not going to win a Michelin star. This is solidly a cafe, with fairly typical cafe food. If you want fancy dining, head somewhere else. However if you want excellent value, well cooked simple food with friendly service it's a great place. Being just off the main tourist routes it's not packed with too many tables, and doesn't feel the need to overcharge. Fairly spacious but popular enough it can be fairly busy at lunchtimes. A good choice of cooked breakfasts and typical cafe lunches served in generous portions.

“Great for a Hangover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I live down the road from the Longport Cafe, and it has to be said that it's one of the best hangover cures ever, the portions are extremely generous and the staff are all very friendly. I recommend the Hunger Buster, it's the biggest full english breakfast I've ever eaten!

“Cheap and cheerful.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Cafés come and go very quickly in Canterbury, mainly due to extortionate rent and snobby residents... so it's a good sign when one sticks around for a few years.

Food is good and very well priced. Typical cafe atmosphere but the cooking area being visible is a nice touch. Always good to see who's cooking your food after eating in various grotty places when hungover!

Don't expect a quiet breakfast. Mainly filled with hungover students and locals, but it remains a quality place to have a quick bite to eat that's cheap and hearty. From fry-ups to generously sized omelettes to filled baguettes to full on dinners.... highly recommended for a no-frills lunch.
