We visit Whitstable a few times a year and we always try to visit this cafe. It is a nice, modern cafe with an outdoor area great for people watching. Food is OK, we had jacket potatoes, salad, sandwiches, etc. All very good.

This should be a gem with its fantastic views from the balcony, but there isn't much choice of food and its all looking a bit shabby.

Called at horsebridge cafe today, didn't realise until too late that it's some type of 'pop-up cafe' this weekend.
Lots of people there who must have been friends of the people running the show - maybe be a good thing to see if customers need serving rather than chatting to your friends, (one of who had her feet up on a table the whole time I was there. Don't wish to sound too neurotic germophobe - but it's not a good look!)

Hopefully back to normal service tomorrow.

Only use the cafe if you're happy to drink your coffee to a soundtrack of swearing and juvenile nastiness from the youngest staff and their friends
If you throw a stick in whitstable these days you'll hit about 10 trendy coffee bars - spend your money in one that at least pretends to be professional.

We are really sorry you had this experience at the cafe. The cafe was contracted out in 2016 and we have now taken this service back in house. We have made significant changes to the staffing and general condition of the space to ensure it reflects the Centre and its place in our community and hope you will give us another try. We are currently running with reduced opening hours and food menu until we get staffing where we expect it to be, but you can be sure of a warm welcome, great selection of light bites including gluten and dairy free, and a range of hot and cold drinks. Sorry again, we hope this experience would not be repeated, as you say, there are plenty of cafes in Whitstable and we really expect our one to be one of them.
