This cafe is small but serves lovely home made cakes and snacks. I enjoyed the home made fruit scone served with butter, jam and clotted cream and a cup of English Breakfast tea. The croque monsiours and filled croissants looked to die for 😊

On a busy Friday in Canterbury, we wanted a nice spot to stop for a cuppa and snack. This was perfect, it is a French styled café with some French staff, and the choices were great. The staff were friendly and helpful and our baguettes excellent with a good garnish. I would definitely visit again if I am ever in... More

Whenever, we're in the area, we never miss this place. We'd just returned from Paris, believe me, St Pierre, was way better than anything we encountered there. Unfortunately, was raining, so we opted to sit inside, we get a table right out front. There are tables out back down the stairs, but they we're all spoken for. All the staff... More

I visited the cafe with a group of walkers. There were ten of us, but without any fuss, the tables in the tiny garden were grouped together to enable us to all sit together. We only wanted a snack, and we were all served very quickly. The soup that day was Celery and Stilton, delicious. Others had croque monsieur, sausage... More

Recovering from 'dodgy tummies' my wife and I only wanted a quick digestible snack and came across this unpretentious looking little restaurant on the way from the rail station. We had the soup of the day, spinach and vegetable, which was absolutely delicious - quite the best we have had for yonks. It came with a very good bread roll... More
