“Avoid At All Costs - if you are not a local”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

During a lovely week travelling around Kent we popped into this cafe for a coffee. We were amazed at the very frosty 'welcome'. We were ignored for a while and then eventually our order was taken for three coffees and one piece of cake. Two cups of coffee were put on our table (as I said, there were three of us). When we asked, nicely, for the third cup - we were told quite sharply "why did we want three cups, when we had only asked for two" ! The owner (?) then said - quite sarcastically "was it just the one piece of cake then or did we really mean three?" She was really quite rude and to be honest, spoilt our trip to Sandwich. Other customers came in, obviously local people, and they were treated quite differently, so can only assume she was having a bad day or just does not like tourists.

“Homely place for a quiet coffee”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

I was looking for somewhere to have a leisurely coffee in the ancient town of Sandwich and saw the comfy sofas in here. Inside feels like being in someone's home, and so peaceful with no piped music. The menu is varied for light meals and delicious home-made cakes, but best of all was the excellent coffee. The owners really know their regulars' tastes and make sure they are happy with the quality. I will be returning to try the food soon.
