Good food, quirky atmosphere and little shops too. The food is freshly made and delicious, good range of drinks. Eat, then explore the range of little shop/stalls. Books, toys, fashion, artwork. Varied and interesting. Well worth a visit.

Lovely artesan cafe in central Hythe. Lovely lunch menu with an array of odds and ends to look at and purchase. 'Shabby chic' flavour with a super friendly service. Recommend the hot chocalates and home made cakes!
