“Superb breakfast, lovely pottery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I discovered Baltica when working in Lewes and took my wife there to start off a Valentines Day mooch of this lovely historic town. As we were there for breakfast we didn't venture into the Polish dishes but hope to when we next visit. Saying that Baltica served the near perfect english breakfast, cooked to perfection with a high percentage of locally sourced produce.

We loved the pottery and spent far too much on bits for the kitchen and some very cute miniature tea sets for the girls. Everything was done with pleasure and a smile. I hope that Baltica's location a bit off-centre does not deter people finding it. Hoping that TA spreads the good word!

“Pottery to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Quiche by any other name doesn't belong in Baltica! Some of the best veggie lunch I've ever had, served with much panache on beautiful pottery from Poland. Coffee was terrific too.

“Clean & Bright Coffee Shop and Pottery Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Visited this cafe on a particularly cold January day and had nicest cup of hot chocolate ever - it came in a gorgeous Polish handmade pottery mug. The mug was so nice I treated myself to one and will be adding to my collection when I next visit in the Summer. Not cheap pottery but classy - just like the cafe. Did not eat but drinks were reasonable. Price of cakes in my local Garden Centre were more expensive than here though ...

“Amazing Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We stumbled across this cafe and were really glad to have found it. The coffee was outstanding and served in attractive Polish handmade pottery.The cakes looked good (but we thought very expensive) but we didn't try any so can't comment fairly.
