Right on Deal front with views of the English Channel. Great spot for coffee, brunch or lunch. Very casual, with newspspers to read. These are often required as service can be a bit erratic. However, coffee and food are good and freshly prepared.

I regularly come here for breakfast normally after a heavy night out on the town. Service is slow but the quality of the food and drinks more than makes up for it. I highly recommend either the big breakfast or the eggs diego.

Good for a reasonably priced lunch. A selection of daily papers was a nice touch. This was recommended by a local which is always a good start.

This place is a one-off. For a start it is much more than a coffee house, albeit coffee and cake there is fine if that is what you are looking for. However it is the lunches produced in the open domestic-style kitchen just behind the...More

This place has so much potential but after two more dissapointing visits we would now go elsewhere. Portion sizes have reduced considerably. Either that or there is no consistency in the serving sizes from day to day. A miniscule piece of pastry tart and some...More

Always a treat for Brunch. Excellent food and lovely cosy atmosphere. Just luck whether a table is free but we've been lucky so far this year.
