Received a dirty plate with my meal, was told it was not dirty but dried on food from the microwave !! Mediocre steak pie, dry and pretty c**p pastry. While I realize this is not a Michelin star restaurant would be nice for the basics to be right... Good friendly staff and service

Went to Cafe Solo this morning for breakfast, as the normal café we go to whilst on holiday here was being refurbished. Well glad it was as this was a wonderful find. Portion sizes were huge and everything was very tasty. Great strong builders tea, and did jasmine and green tea for my husband, unusual for a café. The price... More

Having passed it a few times and heard adverts for it on local radio, we decided to give it a go as we had to go to Wincheap and some of the shops - I will not shop on an empty stomach. We had to wait to be seated but with the number of staff working tables were turned around... More

My husband and I wanted a quick breakfast while our daughter was at gymnastics around the corner but we had our dog with us. No worries, a quick call to Cafe Solo assured us that our dog was welcome in the garden. And not just welcome, they were happy to bring him a water bowl as well. The food was... More

This cafe has the perfect selection of breakfasts, the staff are all really friendly, and it's always nice and clean. I've only been here about 5 times in the past couple of years, but it's the first place I head to in Canterbury when I want a full English. Spot on.

Popped in for a brunch and as usual a brilliant service and excellent well cooked and fast service. Clean and tidy and no frills and somehow they have the right balance to satisfy customers needs. A great formula.

Great Mega Breakfast but sadly plate was cold and food not that hot, but other than the staff being a bit too quick in clearing the plates. But food tasted lovely and will be coming back.

We called in at the Solo each morning on our way into Canterbury last week. The Solo ticked every box for us. A large car par, good opening hours, lovely food and really lovely helpful staff. They have inside eating space, a secluded garden eating space and also a small terrace in the front which was lovely to have our... More
