This is a really great place to go for a light lunch and a coffee in Wateringbury. The atmosphere is relaxing and cosy, The prawn sandwich I had was tasty and I really enjoyed my Americano. Will visit again!

We often visit as we live in the village and it is the only cafe! Generally good food and drinks, but service can be very slow. What is different is that the cafe sits within a shop selling lots of interesting antiques. Worth a trip.
