…is at my house. Just kidding. Kind of.

According to some builders and electricians I can probably make a better coffee than most cafes in Kent but I’m not planning on opening a cafe myself any time soon. (Believe me I’ve run the numbers many times… Just doesn’t add up, and I think I still prefer going to a cafe rather than running one).

So, if you did decide to come and visit beautiful Rochester here’s where you should go for coffee (or lunch or both):

#1 Seaplane works – definitely the best coffee, but pricey and limited food, although I like their wraps and soups, and they have lots of vegan options if that’s your thing.

# 2 The Cheese Room – decent coffee (not great) but really good lunch and lovely interior. Like all service in Rochester and Kent though, beware! Service will be slow and a bit gruff. It’s not London. I’m working on it. 😉

# 3 Cafe Nucleus – amazing interior, art and good cocktails and many lunch options. Again the coffee won’t send you writing raving reviews but it’s ok. Why does everything in Medway have to be ok? When it could be all amazing… anyway, a post and rant for another day.

#4 Kangaroo Court Cafe – friendly owners who decided to move location to Rochester High Street from Chatham in the first week of lockdown… AAARRGHH! But, they make amazing gf cakes and a decent coffee. Not sure what the COVID opening situation is atm but if they are open definitely worth a visit for the cake alone!

#5 Deaf Cat – the equivalent to a local Costa that makes fairly decent coffee. Not much food to choose from.

So, here you have it. Lots of choices. And I’m always up for a coffee if you drop by.
