Nick and Andy have "retired" and we are being passed in to the safe hands of Kate with new décor, new ideas and new style. Good luck to Kate - hope the regulars stay loyal - good to hear the loyalty cards will be in evidence. I'm sure you will keep it excellent as before - you have the passion!... More

A great idea to have a small cafe actually on the platform. The guy that runs it is a great chap, who offers a selection of beverages, and doesn't hang about. Fantasic to be able to grab a coffee, before getting a train to London.

Situated on Deal station, Platform 1 is a great coffee stop before embarking on the train to London. Friendly service from the owner and a very well kept cafe.

How lucky we are to have this facility. Clean ,friendly , seating, newspapers, meeting place. How wonderful that there is private enterprise...must have been a gamble in the first instance. A great start to a train journey...so great it is thriving ,a great show of for deal and passengers arriving and departing for other areas. Nothing not to like .q

Locally owned and run, it's nice to grab a coffee from an independent. Welcoming, fast service - the perfect 'hello' and 'goodbye' when visiting Deal.

Fantastic coffees and a good array of freshly made rolls are the perfect start to the day. The owners always go that extra mile, always professional and friendly.
