Great views

This is fast becoming my favourite place for coffee. I can have a nice walk along the sea front, stop for coffee, have lovely views out to sea and my dog is made welcome. Really good coffee, lovely cakes. I really want to go for breakfast or lunch as their menu sounds very tasty. I do hope this place will stay open for the winter. I know it can get very quiet but it will be a great place to go and watch the world go by.

“Ideal sea side cafe for a break on cycling trip”

Went on a bike ride with my son in September 2021. The coffee was nice as was the sandwhich. Swift friendly service and great sea views. Nice to be able to sit outside.

Great food, excellent spot-on service,

What can be better than sitting in the sunshine, enjoying great food, excellent spot-on service, even a glass of wine whilst looking out to sea, and overlooking Deal's rather workman like pier.

We really enjoyed our midday meal, and it set us up for a great day in Deal - we thoroughly recommend Route One
