This cafe is fantastic. Stopped by for a cooked breakfast on my way home after staying in an airbnb in Hythe. The service was exceptional and the cooked breakfast was the best I’ve had for a very long time. The bacon was crispy, the sausage was a good quality pork and herb, and the toast was thick cut bloomer. The prices are very reasonable too. They have excellent range of sandwiches, light meals and freshly made caked as well as breakfasts. All in all I was really impressed 5 out of 5.

My visit on 17 October started with ordering coffee. I sat down outside as but claustrophobic inside. Immediately I was met by 2 seagulls. Then a couple sat down nearby with a dog bigger than themselves.

I cancelled order and left. As a retired Environmental Health manager outside seating can be protected from seagulls this cage chooses not to?

I'm not visiting again. More seats outside than inside so not sure when it's wet if enough space indoors?

More investment in umbrellas and protection from seagulls please.

Dear Bob* we are so sorry you were not able to enjoy your visit to our cafe this week. As a seaside town seagulls can be an issue and as you are probably aware are also a protected species. We do make every effort to minimise their impact on our cafe. Our outside area is usually a lovely environment to sit, but on occasion the seagulls can be persistant. Usually our customers are understanding of this or chose to sit inside.

£6.75 for a cream tea for 2 people. How do they do it? Scones were delicious and very generous cream and jam made them go down a treat. A great little place.
