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.

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 ?

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

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
