“Best Hot Chocolate”

If you like hot chocolate, then be prepared for the best hot chocolate ever! The hot chocolate here is amazing, and the coffee and tea choices were beyond belief! Great coffee shop and lovely cakes.

“You are in for a treat if you go there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

Great coffee,good selection of teas,yummy cakes, gluten free,wheat free, dairy free catered for. Can recommend the walnut tart, mmmmmm heaven! They also have homemade soup and fabulous sandwiches that you can have made with low GI bread if you wish. The staff are very cheerful and very helpful. I wish they would open a branch in Brighton, I'd be a regular customer!

“Nice coffee shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

You have to like a coffee shop that gives you atimer to help you ensure your tea and coffee are brewed to perfection in the pot they give you. Excellent

“The best hot chocolate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

This cafe serves the best hot chocolate. A tall glass is lined with chocolate and then hot milk is poured in and a disc of chocolate is placed on top of the milk. There are also nice cakes but the hot chocolate is generally enough! I wish they would open some more branches so that I didn't have to go to Tunbridge Wells and park in the car park just for the hot chocolate!
