This is a wonderful place. Small but perfectly formed. The deli is at the front of the establishment and offers a good range of fresh produce. Go to the rear of the property you can have great coffee with fresh bread or croissant along with lovely French couple who cannot do enough for you.

Stopped in Tenterden today and noticed this cafe I hadn't seen before. We went in for coffee and crossiant. It felt like we were in France and the French owners were friendly and welcoming. Well worth a visit.

Stopped here for a quick coffee and was blown away by the quality and the smiles with which it was served. Very pleasant experience.

This is a lovely cafe and deli run by charming French owners.
I have visited twice and I live miles from Tenterden but having discovered the cafe earlier in the year I would make a detour to get there if I am in the area its that good.
The deli stocks a range of French treats that you would find hard to source on the average high street.
The cafe side of the business is perfect - good coffee and tea, all beautifully presented and prepared with care. The warm scones and fig jam are the best I have ever tasted.
The business also sells a range of French soaps and lotions. The lavender soap and handcream are gorgeous and much better than other well known artisan brands.
Well worth a visit. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent coffee. Only a couple of outside seat tables. Came across as new and not completely up to speed. Slow service, incomplete order. Some breads are extremely expensive , around £5 a loaf? Good cheeses. Will have to buck up to remain in Tenterden.
