The least said about Gibraltar the better. Cold wet and rainy, how does that happen when Spain is always so much sunnier?
This charming interiors and gift shop in Mercery lane has recently opened a coffee shop.
Wildwood’s menu led us astray this week. Two courses and a drink – a main and either a starter or dessert, for £10 seemed a better bet than just a coffee.
Skinny Kitchen is in St. Peters Street right in the middle of Canterbury.
Every meal has a calorie count but none of them are too high!
There was no coffee but this this place deserves a review anyway.
We had seen a Christmas stall for this place in December but didn’t have time to eat there so this week we went to Castle street to find out if it was as good as it looked.
The Green room at the Marlowe theatre is not an obvious place for morning coffee but a good choice if you need to go to the Marlowe to book a show.
Creams has only just opened in Canterbury. It is very near the cathedral and seems to be aimed at the tourist afternoon tea market.
Carluccios is in Fenwicks next to the bus station.
Kaspa’s is very popular with teenagers so not our usual haunt. But a grandchild off school in need of a milkshake meant we had to go to the place with the most choice. Here you can get a milkshake made exactly as you want it from the huge variety of ice cream flavours and sweets in stock.
Afternoon Tea at Patisserie Valerie
Finger sandwiches in different breads cucumber, smoked salmon and a delicious pesto and chicken.
Two scones each with jam and cream.
A selection of cream cakes.
- Excellent location in the high street next to the Chaucer statue.
- Good service with a friendly waiter.
- We had a nice reserved table.
- The Earl Grey tea was very good and the pot was refilled.
- The food was delicious especially the mini quiche.
- Not cheap but good value for a treat.
- The toilets showed signs of heavy use but had obviously been cleaned earlier in the day (lovely smelling hand wash).
Too much food we should have only eaten one scone each to save ourselves for the cream cakes.
Never mind we struggled on and managed to finish everything!
This is one of the best cafes in Canterbury with an excellent menu and good staff.
