“Better than your average cafe”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We went here during a shopping trip in town and went here based on the high ranking in Tripadvisor for a Saturday lunchtime.

We entered and although there was a table downstairs, we were offered a table upstairs, we were slightly surprised by the upstairs as it was a bit more of a lounge with sofas rather than the cafe downstairs but looking at the website it appears it can be used for small functions, events etc. e.g. We noticed some lampshades that seemed out of place, only finding out when inspecting them at the other end of the room that they were for sale.

I ordered a chicken salad and a chai and my partner ordered a mocha and ploughman's. I liked my salad but my partner was not overwhelmed with the ploughman's. She wasn't convinced that the bread was the right bread and for a place that celebrates using local produce, the pickle could have been local but appeared to be regular Branston.

The service was good, the place was clean and it was a good cafe in a quiet part of town.

Overall, it was good, but we have been to better (and worse) cafe's in town, probably have to go back and try the cake.

“Lovely breakfast”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We happened upon this little cafe whilst in tunbridge wells for a weekend away. The food was excellent - The cooked breakfast was obviously made with good quality food and was presented very nicely. The upstairs looks to be quite sweet too to hang out to have a coffee for an afternoon. Very nice.

“Best coffee in town by far”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Lovely fresh sandwiches prepared to order, tasty light brunches and friendly service coupled with THE best coffee for miles. Ideal for a lunch stop whilst shopping.

“Okay little cafe”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Slightly overpriced for what you get and the service is very touch and go - some days great and others a complete shambles. They do a mean bacon sandwich though!

“Macchiato and a song!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

First trip to Tunbridge Wells. 23 hairdressers!! How can one town have so many hairdressers and so many coffee shops. Still Tiffin stands out. A lovely macchiato and delicious Dutch apple cake. I am an expert on both.

However I particularly liked the young woman who hummed and sang (quietly) to all the songs. - very sweet.
