This Cafe in the heart of Eastbourne has great ambiance Fabulous coffes from Union Hand Roasted. Delicious Hand made Cakes and a great selection of rolls and cibatta as well as a selection of hot dishes. Some pavement tables to enjoy our sunny days and really friendly and helpful staff. We will definately be lunching here again when in Eastbourne.

After having had quite an 'interesting' experience at the Eastbourne hotel we were staying at, finding Urban Ground was a real relief. The food was lovely, the prices are very reasonable and the coffee was particularly good and they were so very friendly and welcoming.
