We're regulars at Urban Ground and miss it terribly when we're not able to make our customary visit each week. The staff are lovely and always very friendly and welcoming. The drinks are excellent, my favourite here is the chai latte, and the cakes, tea cakes, paninis, and especially the cheese scones are all delicious. Always pretty busy, but what... More

Fantastic no-nonsense cafe. The coffee was near perfect and a Portuguese style custard tart was excellent - all the cakes looked great too. Service was good and efficient. Great location as well.

I was looking for a great cup of coffee when I arrived in Eastbourne for a mooch. With it's numerous rock and souvenir shops I thought the chances of finding a good independent coffee shop would be slim! But I turned to trip advisor which suggested Urban Ground would be great. From the outside it was appealing, but the lack... More

Dirty tables outside, cramped inside. Service like something out of the dark ages. The coffee was expensive. I was expecting a lot lot more from this establishment after hearing good things. Very disappointed.

Happy friendly staff, fabulous coffee and scrumptious cake! What's not to love! Why go to one of the big chain coffee shops that are usually soulless ?
