Have been going to Cafe Solo for a good cooked breakfast for a few months now and have found that service is always good, staff are always friendly and the food is always excellent. There really is something for everyone on the menu and it's great to see both young and old people enjoying the place. They also do takeaway... More

Have driven past so many times and seen how busy it was so decided to stop and try it for ourselves. We both had a large breakfast which was fresh, hot and really good value. Staff were really friendly and food and drinks came out fast. Really impressed and will be back!

We popped in for a cheeky breakfast, it was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection! I would have taken a photo but I couldn't resist eating it instead!! Myself and my husband chose to build our own breakfast which means you can pick and chose exactly what you want. My daughter had sandwiches as she's super fussy, she ate all... More

Very much part of the current breakfast culture fad that's sweeping the country. Solo is located in an old now defunct pub in Wincheap that has been transformed into a typical transport-cafe that was commonplace up to the late 1970s. Decor is very 'transport cafe' but perfectly clean and functional. The menu is extensive, offering everything you could possibly want... More

We pop in to Cafe Solo in Canterbury for a quick lunch fairly regularly & always find it fantastic value for money & spotlessly clean with 2 fairly large modern tabled eating areas. The service is always first class, with very helpful & friendly staff. Today, we were on a tight schedule & thought we would try it for Sunday... More

Reasonably priced attentive staff fairly quick turnaround from entry to eating no problem's regarding hygiene toilets got thumbs up from my wife so must be good. Asked for business card but told boss doesn't have them anymore..opportunity missed for future trade on promoting but judging by turnover and footfall maybe he doesn't need any extra trade 😊

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
