“Expensive.”
Review of Hope & Lane

Hope & Lane
Ranked #6 of 11 Coffee & Tea in Deal
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 10, 2016

Very nice decor but over priced. Our pastry was dry and slightly stale. Disappointing. Sadly their attention to detail is also lacking. We sat upstairs which had wonderful views of the old church and trees but we were unable to see them due to large over grown window boxes with dried up and dead plants in them. What a waste of such a lovely outlook. The loo seat hinges were broken and the seat therefore slipped. Nasty. There are so many great coffee and tea shops in Deal to choose from so I won't be going there again.

Very pleased with the soya coffee. They even left the shop to buy more soya that has never happened before so that was very nice. Little array of cakes. Dog allowed on the main floor which is a bonus for Bob .

This cafe looked good from the outside and did not disappoint once inside. The coffee is good and the pastries all look enticing. The muffins beat the ones you find in chain cafes by a country mile. Service was welcoming and friendly. There's limited space downstairs - the seats by the window are good for people-watching and enjoying a bit of breeze on hot summer days. There's also an upstairs area, which is a nice space to relax and chat.
There is a fair bit of choice when it comes to cafes in the main street... Worth checking this one out (you'll be supporting independent business rather than the corporate coffee giants like Starbucks).

Lunch or brunch it's great for catching up with friends and having a choice of seating to view passers by or get cosy or be with family upstairs in the quieter space.

Popped in for a coffee and lemon tea plus croissant and cake. Good flat white and lovely tea, and the cakes were varied and fresh! This isn't a big place, seating for 14 or so downstairs and the same upstairs. The service is really good and the place is very clean. They do serve salads and sausage rolls and fruit, so could be a lunchtime venue.
