Margate has the Best Seaside Resort Award and the town has a retro feel of which this quirky cafe is typical.It has old fashioned teapots,cups and saucers allied to old fashioned standards of service.The Staff were friendly and welcoming and the coffee and Victoria sponge and cupcakes were welcome on a cold winter's day!

The cup cake cafe in The old town Margate is a great place .....homely, quaint and comfy. Nice food, big menu and big portions. Seating inside and outside and a nice cozzie blanket for your knees for when the sea breeze is a bit fresh.

Nice décor, good coffee, very polite staff. They also offer a range of paninis and sandwiches . The café is located in a lovely little square, perfect place for a Sunday stop for a snack.
