“Miramira love Swan Street Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

All the girls at Miramira get their lunches from the cafe daily! Even some of the clients have started ordering lunch to enjoy while having treatments. Their prices are reasonable and everyone that works there are lovely. If you're looking for a cool place to go for lunch this is it!

“A lovely little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

This café is a much nicer alternative to the big brand one round the corner! The choice of sandwiches / baguettes is amazing and they have a lovely range of hot drinks. I'm a tea fan, and I got a large pot with as much milk as I wanted - I'm a milky-tea drinker so often I don't get enough when out, and when I asked, more milk was immediately brought to the table with a smile. I'm keen to go back and try the cakes!

“Nice place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

I've popped in here a few times for lunch now. Good variety of rolls, baguettes, etc and great coffee. Much nicer than the high street chain coffee shop round the corner.

Hello! Thank you very much for your review. We're so proud of our coffee. It comes from a great independent roaster called HasBean and it makes a beautiful cup! Keep your eyes peeled for new additions to our menu's to keep things interesting :D Thank you again, Charlotte x

“Really good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is such a great individual cafe. You can pick and choose what you want it's not pre wrapped in film waiting to be re heated! The bagels that are used here are lovely with seeds and nuts on then which are delicious when they are lightly toasted !!! Yum yum

“Great local Cafe in West Malling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

A perfect place to catch up with friends over coffee and lunch. So much better than Costa Cofee! My friends had the lemon drizzle cake and bakewell slice, both said they were lovely, tasty and fresh. I had a simple chicken caesar salad, which although small and served in a bowl was tasty and just what I wanted. The coffee (Monmouth) and tea is fresh and tastes great. The cafe, although small has a great atmosphere and the ladies running the cafe are cheerful and friendly. My friends and I will make this a regular place to meet rather than going to the big branded cafes, so much better and cheaper!

Hi! Thank you for your kind review. It's great to hear you're a Swan Street fan. We're going to have a look into our portion sizes for salads and see if we need to make adjustments. Thank you for the heads up :)
