Excellent

At a loss for something to do, after a sort illness. Popped in for a coffee. I got an excellent Latte, and a nice chat with the manager. Hope the day continues in the same way.

This place never fails to deliver. Great coffee. Really fresh food. Fab service. All in all - one of the best places in Sussex to get a decent caffeine hit and some good grub.

Reading other reviews can only think expectations in eastbourne are rather low . It was ok but didn't justify the prices. Knock a third off and maybe ok. Other reviewers said andwiches are unusual.

I have been to this lovely cafe so many times and it never disappoints. Seriously, this cafe sells the Best coffee in Eastbourne. The food is tasty and original. The staff are friendly and the whole experience is just right. The loyalty card is very welcome too.

We were lucky to get a table today, it is very popular and rightly so. Best latte I've had in ages and yummy cake. Service was excellent, you order at the desk and your food/drink is brought to your table. The outside seating is very pleasant if the weather is good.

We visit this coffee shop quite a bit & you should too. Unlike the plethora of coffee shops that have erupted all over our country this one is a little different.

Just love this place every time we visit our relatives we pop in. A great welcome with fab staff. The coffee, food and homemade cakes just a little bit different. They know how to make a good coffee and kids always talk about the selection of cakes.

By far the best coffee in Eastbourne. The only downside is that... It is too popular, and getting a seat is a challenge.
