We have adapted the interior of our coffee house and created new processes and systems in order to keep both our workers and our customers safe as we open again. Things may be a little different when you visit, but the cakes, the books the coffee and our lovely team are just the same as before. All our COVID-Secure measures are outlined on our website.
FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT
Steep Street Coffee House is a literary coffee shop inspired by the famous book cafés of Paris. Interesting and arty books line the walls - poetry and local literature, classics and coffee table hardbacks. In the tradition of the first European coffee houses we hope that our space will become a hub for lively conversation, meetings, reading, writing and entertaining. All of this to be fuelled, of course, by our speciality coffee, sandwiches, salads, paninis, patisserie and a good deal of our famous home-made cake.

About The area
The White Cliffs of Dover are an English icon – the epitome of our island heritage and sense of nationhood. They also mark the point where the Kent Downs AONB, that great arc of chalk downland stretching from the Surrey Hills and sometimes known as ‘the Garden of England’, finally reaches the sea. This is a well-ordered and settled landscape, where chalk and greensand escarpments look down into the wooded Weald to the south.
Many historic parklands, including Knole Park and Sir Winston Churchill’s red-brick former home at Chartwell, are also worth visiting. Attractive settlements such as Charing, site of Archbishop Cranmer’s Tudor palace, and Chilham, with its magnificent half-timbered buildings and 17th-century castle built on a Norman site, can be found on the Pilgrim’s Way, the traditional route for Canterbury-bound pilgrims in the Middle Ages.
In the nature reserves, such as the traditionally coppiced woodlands of Denge Wood and Earley Wood, and the ancient fine chalk woodland of Yockletts Bank high on the North Downs near Ashford, it is still possible to experience the atmosphere of wilderness that must have been felt by the earliest travellers along this ancient ridgeway.
