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.

Our fresh ingredients are sourced from independent local producers. Our coffee is direct trade, newly roasted by Small Batch, a speciality coffee roaster in Brighton.



Stephen is from Hastings and is passionate about food – cooking it as well as eating it! He loves books, travelling and coffee of course – all passions which have inspired the plans for Steep Street. Having left his London job and suit behind, he is thrilled to be at the heart of the creative quarter.

Alice is also from Hastings and spent years working in cafes and bars before life carried her off to other places. Alice has a love of art and design as well as flair for baking, a hobby that’s expanded to fill weekends and evenings.

Here in Folkestone Creative Quarter, surrounded by artist studios, restaurants, and independent shops Stephen and Alice are finally realising a lifelong dream of opening their own Coffee House.
