“Fantastic Service and Amazing Food should be in the top 3!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We arrived in Margate yesterday and found the Old Town T. Stall. This place will be jammed in the Summer, trust me! Really relaxed service, we got chatting to the owners son who was telling us about the history of the place.

The menu is great and full of choice, the pulled pork was amazing, my partner had the homemade quiche. My daughter had the chicken and bacon burger. The other great thing was that you can have really good choice of individual drinks. My wife had Peroni, I had a bottle of bitter etc...

This is a superb find and in a lovely location set in the creative quarter. If you are visiting, its definitely worth a visit. Prices are good and the coffee is good also! Thanks guys...

“Excellent cakes, tea - coffee not so good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Really excellent cakes served inside or outside in the Market Square. Traditional cafe/tea room, obliging service. The tea was excellent, served in heavy china teapots, but a latte disappointed, being more of the "skimmed mik and a dash" variety

“Cheap, cheerful and TASTY.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Well, the menu is incredible. I've never seen so much variety for one little cafe.
The portions are very good and everything is so cheap.
I went yesterday and this time had a tandoori chicken wrap with chips, coleslaw and salad for £4! I've had all sort of things from this place and it has never disappointed me.
Everything feels of a decent quality and it is a great option when Margate is sunny because you can sit outside in the Old Town area. It is a good alternative to the slightly pricer options around. The appearance isn't that exciting but who cares when you're sat outside anyway?

“A good traditional café”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

The great thing about Margate is that it caters well to all tastes - where we can all deep into every cuisine or environment. I'm as comfortable in the smart restaurants; drinking in a real ale bar or football pub; or snacking in a yummy mummy cafe or a working men's type caff. Margate has them all and the last category well describes T's. The waiter will happily talk about how his Mum has made the cakes on display and I recommend the excellent bacon and fried egg Panini with a side salad. My drink tip - go for a large mocha - very tasty.
