Excellent large independent Cafe in Tonbridge with a wide selection of pastries, sandwiches and lunch and breakfast items. They are open at at 7 which is great for early starters. My favourite is porridge with fruit and nuts.

Savoury crepes are delicious. Other family members had the sweet potato & coconut soup and the Hungarian style goulash soup, everything was tasty. Fruit smoothies were refreshing. A nice change from the chain coffee shops.

3rd time I have visited and each time it's been terrible. Today a dry carrot and orange cake, last visit was a dry inedible crayfish and avocado sandwich. I think it is overpriced under average food and I'm not sure why it's always busy!

As a frequenter of many coffee shops I can attest without fear of effective disagreement that this is best Coffee shop for a good many miles surrounding Tonbridge. Friendly, accommodating and vigilant staff, good food and great coffee!! No more need to be said other than "do yourself a favour and visit!!"

Went for lunch with a good friend today, we both thought that we had amazingly good quality food (portion size alright) for the price and it was really tasty. Will definitely come back again.... Particularly loved the decor as well. Staff were friendly and always a good sign… the bathrooms were very clean!

I came here today for a light lunch. I ordered quiche £3.75 which was literally for a slice - and it wasn't on the large side and wanted a small salad. Well you can only have 2 salads -£4.50! I only wanted 1, why on earth can they not give you what you want and charge accordingly. I asked if... More
