The Hideaway can be found on Bouverie Road, Folkestone Kent. They are a cafe-bistro serving breakfast and lunchtime meals. They mostly use local ingredients and local suppliers and also create some items in-house.
In our interview below, you’ll find out how The Hideaway came about, what the most popular way their customers enjoy Lost Sheep coffee is, and what three words to best describe the business.
Let's get to know The Hideaway and chat with Matt!
1. What's your story?
The Hideaway began from a love of food & drink and the desire to provide customers with a friendly, great-value venue that can be used to socialise and relax. After 20 years as a kitchen designer, I’ve got the customer service element nailed, so we designed a menu, sourced some great products and away we went!
2. What made you choose Lost Sheep Coffee as your coffee provider?
We strive to use local produce where we can. We have local meat, tea, eggs, bread, all cakes and much of our ingredients are made in-house so a great local coffee with a growing reputation had to be next!
3. What’s the most popular way your customers enjoy their Lost Sheep Coffee?
I would say it's joint between Flat White and Americano.
This may be down to our preference when people ask… A bit like when I was in sales myself! The number of people out there with my favourite kitchen or appliances must be huge! The influence of the vendor goes a long way but I feel these are the best ways to enjoy Lost Sheep…… Apart of course from Espresso Martini, which also sits proudly on the menu!!
4. Other than the great coffee, why should people visit?
There’s an array of delicious treats. Homemade fish finger sandwiches on local Docker sourdough, homemade pulled pork or salt beef, homemade meatballs, there’s loads to try. Great breakfasts too… Local sausages, eggs benedict & royale…. The menu is varied.
5. If you weren’t at The Hideaway, what would you be doing?
You can probably guess what I’d STILL be doing...
6. Three-word summary...
Relaxed, great produce, great value.
If you’re in Folkestone looking for a great coffee, that has a great food offering, and a nice relaxed atmosphere, definitely give The Hideaway a go.
