We were out as a couple of families with older children and were looking for a late lunch. I consulted trip advisor and chose this place based on recent reviews. The cafe is quite pleasant inside but we noticed there seemed to be a shortage of tables catering for groups larger than 2-4. We stood around waiting for one of... More

Was looking for a coffee/tea place other than the big chains whilst on a visit to Eastbourne. Found this one just opposite one of the entrances to the Arndale Shopping Centre and was pleased we did. It was clean and modern looking. You place your order at the counter and then the drinks etc are bought to your table. Service... More

Smart and jolly cafe serving fantastic coffee with excellent cakes, sandwiches and snacks. I hope Cafe Nero and the others are nervous this independent cafe should be treasured.

Very nice place with friendly staff and best service! Coffee is marvellous but hot chocolate with marshmallows is spot on! If you with kids you will be surprised ordering apple juice! You will drink more than the kids ( russet apple juice)!

Urban Ground is a lovely alternative to the large, chain coffee houses in town like Starbucks, Cafe Nero and Costa. The premises are small but spacious with lots of different seating - including outside - depending on your type of visit (solo, with friends, with little ones, etc.). Service is quick and personable and the range of interesting and unusual... More

High quality food and drink - you pay a bit more but it's worth it! The roasted red pepper, rocket and houmous wrap I had was delicious. Water is provided so that after your coffee you don't get stung for a mineral water. Good service and a friendly welcome. We walked a long time to find a decent place for... More

If you want really good coffee then forget Costa and Nero. This is the one. Lovely coffee brought to your table with a smile. Excellent stuff.

Without a doubt the best coffee Eastbourne has to offer, I travelled round Australia which is home to some of the worlds best coffee and this definitely rivals that. I wouldn't have coffee anywhere else!

Great coffee, great service, great atmosphere and fantastic home made cakes. If you are in Eastbourne and fancy a coffee, there is no better place to go.
