Arriving early for a meeting near Faversham we were keen to have a good quality cooked breakfast with decent coffee in a clean, well-run local place that was non-chain.
Yup, we stumbled across the Moonlight Cafe and were not at all disappointed! The cheery welcome, evident support from a local clientèle, efficient and smiling service and delicious scrambled eggs and bacon were all on the button. Even the coffee was first class - too often not the case in Britain.
And the place is kept immaculately, with modern furniture and neat menus in clean laminated plastic. We'd definitely go again for breakfast and we'd certainly try it at other times of the day. It's a gem of a local cafe, unpretentious, down to earth and really good value (note - cash only).
And we really need places like this to prosper so that high streets maintain a distinctive local edge and the multinational brands don't completely eclipse the offer. Go well, the Moonlight Cafe!
