The Cupcake Café, The Kitchen and The Shop are all part of one business. Set up in 2009 by Lisa, The Cupcake Café came first and has grown into one of the most popular cafe’s in Margate’s Old Town. It has now expanded to include The Kitchen, where baking lessons and demonstrations are hosted, and The Shop, a retail space selling a range of home, kitchen and baking products available to all. Both The Kitchen and The Shop are located in the same building, next door to The Cupcake Café.


Margate’s Old Town, close to beautiful beaches and the fabulous Turner Contemporary, offers a mixture of bars, cafés and vintage gift shops. There is lots to see so well worth a visit. For up-to-date news follow us on Twitter or see our Facebook page.


We endeavour to use seasonal produce from our gardens and local suppliers. The baker, the butcher and the gardener are all delivering daily to our doorstep. We are now part of PRODUCED IN KENT, showing our dedication to everything local.
