Steep Street Coffee is yet another reason to make the seaside town of Folkestone your next weekend getaway. The restaurant scene is already super hot (from fish and chips at The Smokehouse to harbourside fine dining at Rocksalt to trendy but traditional Sunday roasts at The Pullman), and the arrival of Steep Street in the cute cobbled Creative Quarter will solve all your coffee and cake needs in true hipster style.
All walls of the buzzing coffee shop are lined with bookshelves, heaving with endless vintage tomes – literally, everywhere you look is a book. Inspired by the book cafés of Paris, the aesthetic effect is fantastic. Add to that the ginormous slices of homemade cake and great coffee served in beautiful glazed crockery, and you’ve got yourself the perfect weekend hangout.
