Delicious coffee, nice tea. I had a scone and it was lovely and light, my husband had the cheese and ham croissant also very nice. Service good but must say that whilst the male members of staff were charming and helpful, the females were so miserable! We went on both the Friday and also on Saturday.

Came in, had a quick look at menu. Ordered 2 lattes (really smooth) and coronation chicken sandwich/bap. Both great, but the more important the service was the nicest in Eastbourne!

This place came recommended by my daughter. So with her my wife and 2 grandsons came for lunch. Tasty food, I had the Mozzarella with tomatoes on a great roll. The others had goats cheese and chutney. Great modern tasty food and excellent coffee. Well done for the servers too. Would come back. Highly recommended. Paul

This place was fully packed, we got the last 2 seats, ordered a nice avocado sandwich with salmon, very tasty and fresh. Coffee was very good not the best one I've had but good. Chai latte was to cold for my taste, I like when the milk is hotter. It's a little bit cramped sitting very close to each other... More

we visited here for coffee, wasn't quite as nice as we thought it was going to be, coffee very strong but that's a personal taste. It was very busy so they're obviously doing something right as there's a huge choice of places to go in Eastbourne. Would go again but think more what to have before ordering

Stopped at Urban Ground for a bite while shopping in Eastbourne town Centre. I am a frequent visitor to Eastbourne but had never eaten here. It's known as a coffee place but I had the best pot of tea I have had in a while, a rich tasting loose leaf blend, nice and hot. Also avocados and chili on sourdough... More
