All the cakes are scrumptious & it serves the best cream teas ever

Without doubt, Neates cakery is an Eastbourne must. It is the highlight of our visit & the best cream tea I've had. Light scones, real strawberry jam & a lovely jug of clotted cream. Yummy. The sisters who own this family business are so welcoming to my mum & I who travel down especially from... read more

This is a family favourite. The cakes are delicious (especially the large cakes on the counter, rather than cupcakes) and the ladies who own it are lovely. You couldn't ask for better service and friendliness. We had cream tea here last summer and the scones were amazing - probably the best cream tea in the world!

... with a unique atmosphere and excellent self made cakes. The service is very friendly which makes it overall very nice for the visit. We really liked because compared to all the Starbucks, Costas this is something different. Be aware: Opening times are not longer than 4:30 pm and the Monday is closed.

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.
