The Café

Stop in to our café to experience the finest Macknade ingredients, without the work!

Located in our Flagship Food Hall, Faversham, our café’s menu showcases what can be done with the fantastic ingredients found at Macknade. The passionate team create all manner of wonderful dishes, and draw real inspiration from the unique opportunity of having Macknade as their kitchen larder.

Our café is renowned for its platters, made up of charcuterie and cheeses hand-selected by our deli team. These personify who we are and what we are all about – trying new, exciting produce from Kent and beyond and sharing that experience with family and friends.

Good coffee has always been central to the Macknade way of life. We import our house coffee directly from the Italian roaster Manaresi and deliver it using a mixture of modern and classic espresso techniques. This gives us a unique and high quality coffee that does not disappoint. We also source coffee from small batch artisan roasters in the UK and offer regularly changing guest blends. Stefano, our Managing Director, is a major coffee buff and is always tempting us to try new coffees when they come in!

For those that prefer tea, we have a selection of fine, loose leaf teas blended especially for us by Kent based, master-blenders Blends for Friends. There are some really interesting blends available, so ask our staff for their recommendations. We also work with creative and talented local bakers who provide us with an unrivalled cake selection to accompany our wide range of drinks.

The sample menu below will give you an idea of what we serve, however please note that this is subject to change. We also have a variety of specials, which change on a regular basis.
