Friendly welcome and service and delicious food, nicely presented. Our 2nd visit and we will definitely return! We felt safe in these current strange times, and the toilet was spotlessly clean.

Stepping inside really was like falling down a rabbit hole. Everything was in character and made you feel part of wonderland. The afternoon tea was delightful, we couldn’t finish everything but we were given a box to take things home. The lemon and poppy seed scone was the best scone I have ever tasted, I would go back for that scone alone. The staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful. This is a truly delightful and affordable place to treat yourself.

I had heard good reviews and looked forward to this. Despite terrible weather we ventured down to Herne Bay. The cafe was charming and the lunch sandwich options delicious. However, the cake, despite looking delicious was very dry. When I commented on this I was quite rudely told they were gluten and dairy free so I should expect them to be dry. I also had not been made aware from the website that this was cash only, particularly as I had to provide credit card details to book. My friend and I had to rush out to the bank in the storm to get cash. One member of staff then proceeded to push past my friend with no apology. I think if we had stopped at the sandwiches it would have been fine but the cake left a bad taste and we rushed to eat mints on return to the car to get rid of the claggy taste in our mouths. I will not be returning.

The place is quirky and nice to go somewhere different. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The afternoon tea was good, we were happy with what we paid for it although it wasn't the best I've ever had. The main thing that was disappointing was the seating isn't very comfy at all, we felt a bit crammed in - spare tables around but they seated us right in between two other tables. It was good to go somewhere different and fun but I wouldn't rush back.

We loved the quirky decor with Alice and friends. Enjoyed the afternoon tea which was plentiful. Great selection of finger sandwiches and little sweet bites. Raspberry tartlets super.
