So surprised that this cafe has suddenly closed--we were regulars, the food was good, the coffee probably the best in Maidstone and the staff delightful. What's gone wrong in Maidstone????

Thought I would take a chance on their amazing toasties on display. I chose the salted beef and it blew me away. What a great toastie. Perfect ratio of bread to filling, perfectly toasted and very filling. Possibly a sharer for the smaller eater.

Nice open plan venue, good for pushchairs, wheelchairs etc. Lots of seating inside the prmeises. Lovely food, albeit slightly limited selection and quite pricey for Maidstone. Good coffee and good service though. Very polite and quick.
