I don't like giving 5 stars.... only the very best get it and therefore I think should be used sparingly. Fortunella is 5 stars. Healthy, fresh, super tasty... savory and sweet.... very good portion sizes and well priced. A must visit in Kingston.

We enjoyed the best Saturday morning breakfast in Fortunella before our day trip to Brighton ❤️...this is by far the best cafe for food and freshly squeezed drinks in Kingston...I’m definitely coming here more often ❤️❤️

Visiting Kingston at lunchtime, I needed a coffee, and checked TA for nearby non-chain cafés. Firtunella was the nearest. We nearly gave up, as it was clearly immensely popular and most tables were occupied in and out.
Fortunella-tely, a couple left and we sat down. Inside there is a magnificent array of colourful fresh salads, quiches, desserts and cakes. Irresistible!
You order inside - options on a board priced by main plus number of different salads. You make your selection, sit down and your lunch is piled on the plate and delivered to your seat by a very efficient waiting team.
All was fresh tasty and well presented. My only quibble was the coffee, which was not to my taste,- weak, cloudy and not the full strong flavours of Continental coffees.
Perhaps the machine needs a good cleaning!
The lemon and pistachio cake was exceptional, moist, fresh and flavoursome.

Dear Paulo,

Thank you very much for your great review. We are so happy you got to try Fortunella and enjoyed what we had to offer. We are very sorry the coffee was not to your taste as we very much pride ourselves on serving great quality. I have informed the staff to take extra care when preparing coffees and maintaining the machines. Although I can assure you that those get cleaned daily.
We hope to see you back soon and hopefully your coffee will be more to your taste. Please feel free to inform the staff if you like stronger flavour for your coffee. :-)

You cannot go wrong here. Coffee is excellent. Food whether salads or breakfasts is guaranteed to be good quality, well presented and tasty. And the service is warm and friendly. Lovely to sit outside weather permitting.

Half way through our shopping, daughter and I needed a pick-me-up and spotted a table outside this lovely little cafe in Apple Market just out of the way of all the shoppers in the Main Street. We were joined by daughter's' partner who had been doing a bit of shopping himself evident by the amount of bags he was carrying! I had a real problem picking a single cake but plumped for the orange polenta cake which was beautifully moist; daughter had blueberry cake; and boyfriend had banana and blueberry cake - again luscious and moist. A lovely coffee and two pear and apple juices finished our order. We were served very quickly. The choice on the counter inside was amazing with little tiny cakes, healthy salads and some impressive looking sponges. A lovely place to sit in the sun and rest our tired feet. Lovely cakes but if I'd succumbed to another one, I wouldn't have got my shopping done!
