Lush cakes

Have been here a couple of times now. Have never been disappointed. The cakes are amazing. How do they get the sponge so light? Service is friendly and efficient. Will definitely return again. x

What a refreshing change from the normal! The panini and sandwiches were delicious. As tempting as the variety of cakes and scones were, we simply didn't have room for anything more. What made the visit for us was the music that was gently playing in the background. I wouldn't want to put anyone off by naming the artist but just... More

Just two minutes walk from Eastbourne Pier, this delightful tea shop is a real find. Sugar topped scones, raspberry jam, thick clotted cream, even topped off with fresh raspberries - wonderful. How have I walked along this road without noticing it before? It was a little cold for an ice cream so we went in after spotting the cream tea... More

Called in with my wife for a cream tea and it didn't disappoint. The scones were warm and fresh, with large sugar crystals on the top to finish them off. The raspberry jam tasted of raspberries, not sugar, perfect. It tasted freshly made again, I really liked this, The clotted cream was the right amount, with a fresh raspberry on... More

We just chose a place at random to have afternoon tea/coffee. OMG!!! The cakes we tried were a raspberry Victoria sponge, with fresh whole raspberries and a very subtle lemon icing. I had a moments where I had never tasted anything so delicious in my life (and I have eaten a lot of cake in my life). But my husband's... More

My hubby booked a table as a last minute mothers day surprise. Our first visit here and it definitely won't be our last. The staff were polite and friendly. We shared a goats cheese and fig jam Panini so that we weren't too full for the cream tea. The Panini was delicious and we both had a little side salad... More

Stopped by with my partner as we were really hungry and the cafe is beautiful and well presented, would love to see more on the walls but the food is quality and the service was great. A little expensive maybe but soooooo good. Well recommended if you pass by!
