This has to be my favourite place for Breakfast , Lunch and Tea. A busy but cosy place to meet up with friends. The breafasts are served till 11.30 and later on Sundays and are delicious,never greasy and well prepared. The menu contains many healthy lunches ,all of which are prepared fresh to order. My favourites are Goats Cheese and... More

We are so pleased to have found this little gem. The staff are amazing and the food is fantastic. They do delicious little specials that is often a topic of conversation when I phone my Dad who is a local (unlike us) and also loves it! Great value. Go go go!

Went here yesterday for lunch and was very impressed with both the service and the food. Quiche of the day was beautiful and obviously prepare with a skilled hand. Definitely worth a visit!

Brilliant food mostly cooked on the premises. Very tasty. Service can be a bit slow when busy but well worth the wait.

Husband had a black Americano which tasted like filter coffee that had just been put in some hot water (he knew it wasn't right, he knows his coffees) Both ordered off the light lunch list. Mine being the omelette with cheese and mushroom, and you get coleslaw, side salad... More

Really like this place as it's roomy and a great place to meet up with other mums without feeling like you're taking over the space with pushchairs. The food is basic but decent, with veggie and vegan options which is great. They even have dairy free cake! Staff are always friendly and attentive. Love the old features and the stained... More

Really like this cafe and the fact it is supporting people with Autism. The food is good too, I always fancy something from the menu, had an open sandwich with mushrooms, Stilton and Walnuts, this came with side salad and crisps. It was very tasty! I also really like the quirky pottery that is for sale also made by people... More

The Restaurant atmosphere is great with cosy sofas as well as tables and chairs. The Menu is varied and is all home made on the premises. The breakfasts are amazing. We go as a couple and with family and there is always something for everyone...their cream teas are delicious. The staff are assisted by people from the Autism Sussex organisation... More
