Slow. No not up to slow, but slower than slow. Coffee & cake OK.

Alison Harris

Lovely warm croissant filled with Nutella and a huge smoothie too

Great place for a smooth cup of coffee and cakes galore. Great service as well.

I went in for a coffee this morning for the first time as I hadn't been to Hythe in some time. The coffee is excellent, very good price, actually hot! and the staff were lovely. I had my two young boys with me and the guy who served me gave them both free cannellonis and some to take away. I thought this was very kind and as quite often a tired mum it's lovely to have GOOD coffee and for people to acknowledge and talk to your children let alone give them a little treat. thank you so much. we will be back ! ?

One of the best breakfasts I’ve had out and about. Great value for money includes coffee/drink in the price. Customer service is brilliant very friendly and lets you substitute items if you don’t like things which not every place does. Had a panini today absolutely lovely as the panini is made by the owner. I had bacon and chicken very nice. I recommend to anyone who fancies something different. Yet to try pancakes maybe next time. Also love it as dog friendly.


Our first visit to this place for breakfast and wow!! A real Italian spin on an English breakfast and absolutely delicious. Definitely one of the best breakfasts I've had and at an absolutely bargain price. Bravo!

Coffee - woeful, one of the worst cups of coffee I have ever had. Was expecting much better.The one thing this place had going for it was the service, very friendly faces, just a shame about the Coffee.Shame.

Loved the caramel bubble shake and cheese and ham panini. Lovely friendly staff.


If you want a cooked breakfast Mediterranean style with herbs and garlic mushrooms to flavour up a normally bland cooked breakfast, this is the cafe for you. It has to be the best breakfast I’ve ever had so I’ve been back for seconds. The staff are very friendly and it is great to have this new cafe addition in Hythe


Only independent cafe open on Sunday, furniture and decor really scrambled together. It’s not clear whether you order at table or at till. Waitress is abit weird and rude. Food took quite a long time to come out. Food was ok abit overpriced for what it is.


Friendly service. Good place to stop for a coffee and a toastie. Tables upstairs and down as well as outside. Cash only.


There are a number of cafes and bars in Hythe- not all open on a Sunday afternoon unlike this new venture. I was most attracted by the 'dog friendly' sign. We went in - dog biscuits on the counter for a treat and the waitress brought my dog a cold bowl of water without being asked. It is mainly a cafe bar with a small menu of paninis and baguettes and toasted sandwiches- but a snack was all I wanted. There are several tables inside as well as seating outside in the pedestrian high street.
