My brother in law brought this for me today, as a birthday treat. It was absolutely lovely you definitely get more then what you pay for. One of the best afternoon teas I've ever had. I will be using this establishment again for mothers day....Kinds regards ZoeMore

This was a very welcome pit stop on our 11k walk from Ramsgate to Broadstairs and back. A lot of places were closed but a little queue formed outside this coffee shop with the welcoming aroma of freshly baked bread. The shop is tiny with...one person entering at a time but it operates a one way system and all staff were wearing masks. The coffee and hot chocolate was excellent and the macaroons truly delicious. In fact all of the cakes looked superb. The gentleman who served us (I assume the owner) was very polite and engaging. It was great to see a small local business offering great service and food in such hard times.More

Had been for a walk today with my son and daughter, inevitably they were 'starving' before the 5 minute trip back home. As a lot of places were shut due to covid restrictions, it was a welcome site to see The Old Bakehouse open. I...have bought their bread many times, which has always been lovely so we thought we chance and see if they had any lunch food available. The shop is very small so only one person is allowed inat a time, with mask. Was nice to see the staff wore face masks too and they were really friendly. We bought three 'Cornish' style Pasties. Made with puff pastry, and still hot, these are the best Pasties I have tasted for a long time. They were nicely cooked and filled with a super tasty minced beef and chunky veg. The whole Pastie had a really lovely taste. Will definitely be visiting again for these and the staff are very lovely and welcoming too - win,win.More

I had to wait an hour whilst my MOT was done so, after doing those inevitable chores you always seem to accrue, I wandered off to find something to eat. I'd been the the Bakehouse PC (Pre-Covid) and promised myself to return. I just didn't...factor in lockdown etc. The tiny tea-room was open, the tables all had their own bottle of hand sanitizer - nice touch. The staff wore masks and cleaned tables etc between customers. If you've ever been inside this tea-room, obtaining a distance of two metres is somewhat impossible, since the room is barely much bigger than that. I ordered a lovely pot of Darjeeling and a welsh rarebit which came with a salad garnish. My goodness, it was a hearty size. Two doorstep white slices of fresh bread, smothered in rarebit mixture. It was delightful. Sadly, I couldn't fit in the last two pieces. And I'd thought to keep my trim shape! Fortunately, if you know Broadstairs at all, the hill climb back to the garage after more than burnt off the majority of calories.More

Have visited this bakery on a number of occasions for take away food. On this occasion decided to eat in the small restaurant adjacent to the shop. The venue is small but adhered to Covid rules fine. My wife had leek & potato soup accompanied...by bread & crutons. I had a Cornish pasty which came with salad & crisps. Both were well presented & yummy. The staff were pleasant & efficient, with the cost being very reasonable. With winter coming we will be visiting again.More

The Old Bakehouse is a great lunch stop in Broadstairs. It’s pretty small and always busy though so be prepared to wait! It’s worth it though. The Welsh Rarebit was fantastic and the cakes are to die for!

My wife and I visited the old bakehouse & tea room on 27th August by chance ,well what a gem of a place we sat outside under the canopy. We were greeted with a smile and welcome, we placed our order , 2 fruit scones...with homemade jam & clotted cream, & a pot of tea each, when we got the food it was well presented piping hot and fresh. The scenes were so lovely and tasty and filling, all this cost an amazing £4-95p each.we spoke to the Baker and said how much we enjoyed the cream tea ,he said all the food and cakes on sale in the restaurant and shop were made on site ,we left extremely happy and a full tummy.This is a place you should not miss out on visiting. We went back 2 days later for a second opinion and we both agreed that it was just as good again, we will definitely visit this great restaurant when we return to broadstairs.More

What a lovely cute place. It’s tucked away in the high street but well worth a visit. We was going to have a sandwich, cake and a tea but we ended up having afternoon tea as the price was fantastic. We had a choice of...sandwiches, crisps, sones with cream and jam and a choice of cakes. It was lovely and such good value. The staff were so busy because they run a bakery too that sells cakes and lovely artisan breads, However the girls who served us were super friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. What a lovely afternoon we had .More

I don't think they would mind but have plenty of outdoor areas.
