Went with family yesterday and found the service friendly, helpful and efficient. We sat outside as it was warm but didn't feel neglected as the cafe waitress was around if we needed another tea, coffee or cake! Only negative is the lack of card machine...More

Great little cafe situated just off Sittingbourne high street. Great vintage atmosphere and lovely food. Great choices for lunch, both my fiancée and I enjoyed sandwiches. Will definitely be returning and saw other customers have breakfasts and afternoon tea which we can't wait to try.

We had a lovely time here for brunch. A cute atmosphere, quick, friendly service and most of the food was good. I wouldn't recommend the poached egg as it was way over cooked; maybe try the fried egg. Very good value for money!
