“Will never return”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

My family and I visited this place as we had heard it was popular . You can see why workmen use it , all the waitresses including the owner wear hot pant and look more like they are in a different profession if you catch my drift ! That aside , we had to wait ages for our food , and it was not served together , more so in little dribs and drabs . I had a toastie and a portion of beans . My beans of course , did not arrive with the toastie but five minutes later . I have run a commercial kitchen myself and you can tell that who ever is running there's hasn't got much of a clue ! And only seems to manage a few meals at a time .

“Go where the crowds are!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

I often wondered why this cafe is busy and those around appear empty. We had almost standard breakfasts, and everything was well cooked and tasty. During the week they have sharing breakfast platters - and they look even better value. I will return...

“Not too great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Only been here once but definitely wasn't worth it! it's not expensive but that's for a reason, the food was alright but nothing to shout about plus we had to wait for 20 minutes to be served by a moody waitress. Would not recommend!

“Faultless, and great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

As cafés go, Eva's will take some beating. Spotlessly clean with a decent choice of breakfasts and lunches, the food is well cooked, well presented and great value for money. The restaurant is light and airy with a good number of tables including a few armchairs if you just want to sit and have a read of the paper over a coffee, has a kiddies play area and clean toilets.

Eva herself is the perfect host, with a warm smile and friendly greeting. There is usually some free car parking outside on London Road, and I would rate this as not only the best café in Dover, but also of many in the locality. Well worth a visit if you're local or heading for the ferries and would rather not pay through the nose for the lukewarm offerings served up on the boats.

Faultless!
