“Amazing Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food, excellent service. If you are in the Chester area, this place is a must visit! Quite possibly the best breakfast burrito that I have ever had!

“Best lobster role EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

We stopped at the Kiwi and had a lobster role. Wow!! Was it great. They put about 10 pounds (ok I am exaggerating) on a buttered toasted brioch bun. I thought I died and went to lobster heaven. You have to try this.

“Great breakfast, highly recommend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were just looking for a place to have breakfast before heading back home and landed at The Kiwi Café. I took a basic breakfast (meat & eggs) which was great and served with home made bread (from a local bakery) which was very good! Their banana bread which is served warm with a bit of honey is highly recommended! We even all purchased Kiwi Café coffee mugs for a souvenir!

“excellent Café”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We only had take-out at this charming café, but we did so on several occasions. Their homemade chocolate brownies are to die for - the chocolate icing is the best I have ever tasted. They sell frozen homemade soups (I especially liked the Hungarian Mushroom) which we took back to the campground and had for dinner with a salad. They also have homemade ice cream (though not their own) - the blueberry lemon is divine.

“Something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Have been enjoying my stay in Chester over race week, the busiest time of the year and dined at the Kiwi a number of times for breaky and lunch, first an most importantly the coffee (lattes) were fantastic from their shiny Nuova Simonelli machine! A couple of times the place was at capacity and the friendly staff seemed to be taking it in their stride, food was great, pancakes, burritos, paninis, and to finish it off the slices were huge, my fave was the pecan slice...with another great coffee :-), what would Chester do without this place?
