I love this place and they did me a wonderful cream tea for my recent birthday, complete with music and a sparkler. The scones were incredibly light, melt in the mouth and the cream and jam top notch. The presentation was wonderful, also fresh flowers on the tables and a lovely bright cheery interior. Definitely one to remember.

We do'nt come from Eastbourne, but are regular visitors. To my mind this relatively new cafe far out shines any other similar Eating place in this area. The quality of the food and how it is presented by friendly staff is a real joy. Most of the produce is home made, and I find their home made soup delicious.Their Rock... More

We visited Neates on Saturday morning. The lady was very friendly. There was a great selection of home-made cakes and the key lime cheesecake was delicious. Will certainly make a return visit.

I popped into Neates to get some cake or scones to take away for a friends birthday. The choice was amazing, so many divine looking cakes to choose from, as well as home made scones, brownies and pecan slice. I ended up going for take away scones which they put in a handy box for me with homemade jam and... More

We popped in here, whilst away for a few days on the South coast, over half term. The staff were friendly, the decor was pleasant, but the cakes.... well, they were superb, so much so we returned for a cheeky take away a few days later !

Friendly and accommodating staff. Afternoon tea consisted of tasty and light home made scones, Devon cream and thick strawberry jam served on lovely, quirky mismatched china. Mix of table layouts to suit individuals, couples and families. Light background music and able to take time to enjoy food and relax.

Delicious cakes and a nice lunch time menu. The best bit about this place is the lovely friendly welcome you get from the sisters. We came for my mums birthday and they put a candle and sparkler on the cake . Small touch but greatly appreciated. Plenty of room for a pram, and we were given a high chair but... More

This is a MUST VISIT when in Eastbourne! The food is great and the proprietors a delight. Do not leave without trying their Cream Tea, the best in East Sussex! Soup in the cold weather is fantastic.
