Dear Jean, We are very sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to our shop,I am a bit surprised you thought you could not look at the menu most people take there time at the table before ordering at the till. As for the size of baguette a whole one would be over 12 inches and would be far to large... More

Sad to say very disappointed with the meanness of the filling in the bacon and Brie panini. Not even one rasher used per panini and very little cheese - see pic. At £4 it just isn't worth the money. The tuna sandwich was good though, well filled but thin white bread. Won't be going back I'm afraid. Shame as it... More

I probably made the wrong choice of lunch here from the menu. Others who dined with me were very happy with their meals. I chose broccoli and cheese crumble and it was stodgy. It was served with a tiny garnish and two slices of French bread which fell from the plate as it was served to me. The choice of... More

Fine moussaka though a little heavy on the cinnamon. I waited quote a while (25-30 minutes) for my dish to arrive. Also quite expensive.

In short, this cafe refused to split an adult portion of curry onto two plates for our children to share, wanted to charge us 50p per glass of tap water and when we questioned this, were told we had better leave......which we did, lost for words! I can only hope the woman who declined our custom was the owner, otherwise... More

One of the best English breakfasts we've ever had - and at a very reasonable cost. High quality local produce, cooked to perfection. Lovely stylish early 1920s-style decor and the service was great too. Can't recommend this place highly enough. It's at the quieter end of the High St, not far from the train station.

After a stroll round Broadstairs we fancied a Coffee and Cake before heading back to the station. The cafe is attractive enough from the outside, with a couple of small tables set back far enough from the road to be pleasant. Disappointingly the advertised homemade cake was noticeable for it's abscence. Apart from what may have been a couple of... More

I am a big fan of good quality coffee, and I wasn't that impressed with the cappuccino I had here and would describe it as average. I also had a flapjack which wasn't bad. However, the service was prompt and the place was a nice retreat from the High Street.

Popped in for a quick lunch the other day, have always loved The Cats Whiskers but I was slightly disappointed this visit. I had a panini which was fine but the accompanying salad really needed some salad dressing, my mum had a cheese and onion sandwich which was on very thin white bread, no sides salad and a couple of...
