Popped in this morning with my mother-in-law after a fraught morning and totally unfamiliar to the local area. We stumbled across the cafe and were immediately drawn in by the cosy, tidy, clean and welcoming vibes. There were nursing mums in there having a chat and an elderly couple having a brew - it was wonderful. The little touches mean... More

Great little coffee shop. A little small and can feel crowded. Menu a little limited if you want hot food. The bacon sandwich was a highlight.

I have eaten here a few times now and find it always friendly. The staff are enthusiastic and attentive. I only wish it was a little bigger as it does get busy. It is in a central location and we enjoyed a lovely lunch watching the morris dancers over the road (at a safe distance)! Highly recommended.

The coffee is good but I usually visit when I want a quick and healthy lunch. There are always a selection of very interesting salads and usually a quiche or pie of some sort. The soup is wonderful and there is always a good selection of homemade cakes. There are also evening sessions with a set menu but I have... More

Have visited the Two Many Cooks café in Reigate in the past so decided to try the Dorking version. Once again the coffee was amazing - they really have a knack of serving up superb coffee! The atmosphere was very relaxed in there ands the staff are very helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit.

Stopped off during a cycling outing. Not sure what I wanted but the staff were really helpful with their advice. I had a goats cheese and chilli toasted soda bread (yummy Chalk Hills Bakery bread!) and a coffee. It was divine and fuelled the rest of my day with a smile.

Dropped in on a Sunday morning with my partner, her daughter and daughter's partner for drinks and a cake. The place was packed, but we managed, thankfully, to get a table. The service is good, but not too hurried, the tea and coffee hot and tasty and the chocolate brownies are to die for (better than Scrumpers in Taunton or... More

Although waitrose has its own cafe inside but we always liked to come and visit this lovely little cafe! They always have nice cakes and fresh unique foods. Only downside is not many seats!

I thought I'd give this place another try after a disastrous first visit ... Unfortunately, I was once again disappointed ... Staff are generally more interested in each other and their catering duties rather than customers (as was the case in my first visit) ... Staff member took my order for a sandwich and coffee and then went off to... More
