fantastic tea and cakes

We had been to Eastbourne before but never stopped at Neates but after seeing the reviews here we decided to give it a go and we weren't disappointed. The cream team was fab and the lemon, raspberry and coconut roulade was a dream. We will be going back on our next visit.

Lovely little cafe, really friendly atmosphere, clean and bright and the cream tea is amazing! Wonderful scones with very generous cream and heaps of jam with real fruit in it. Great place to go!

The first thing that is great about this cakery is that it is run by 3 sisters, so a real family affaire. Quaint distressed painted décor greets you on entering the cakery setting you in a very good mood for a range of home made cakes, and what a selection. My family and I were meeting there to start the... More

With our daughter and her children, I brought my husband here for a special 75th birthday tea. His favourite thing is 'a little something' with his afternoon tea and he was not disappointed! The ladies here are just lovely, and the cakes are just fabulous. Even though we came in not too long before closing time we were made to... More

Sought this lovely quirky tea/coffee and cakery out having read such good reviews. Given a warm welcome and given plenty of time to choose what we wanted from the menu. Everything looked delicious and although we only stayed for coffees which were very good, other customers commented on the tastiness of the food. A lovely place to visit.

Having lost some weight recently I've become very discerning about quality cakes as I don't want to waste calories on sweet rubbish. I had a lovely light chocolate sponge with butter icing and a sprinkle of nuts, truly delicious and washed down with a mildly flavoured cappuccino. The perfect treat.

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
