Came here with some friends for a final caffeine hit before heading up Ditchling Beacon en route to Brighton. Great coffee, very friendly and helpful staff. Next time we'll eat because the pastries and other delights on offer looked mouthwatering. Nice ambiance too – would...More

I really enjoyed eating at this quite unassuming café/deli on Lindfield High Street. The salmon and cream cheese sandwich came with a plentiful side salad and was really tasty, the coffee was excellent and there was a good cake selection to choose from - always...More

Discovered this little cafe a few months ago after a recommendation. I've been a few times since and always had good coffee and lovely cake. The stout cake was fantastic. Staff are always welcoming and friendly.

The tea was dreadful. I had to leave the tea bag in while I drunk it. It was obviously a very cheap brand. Nasty cup. The owners are cutting corners trying to maximise their profits and Im sorry but we the customer notices and wont...More

Thank you for your review and I am disappointed at reading of your experience as it is certainly not one we wish customers to receive. The Yorkshire tea has been in use at the cafe for many months and is generally popular so I am...More

Lovely coffee and croissant. Julian has recently taken over the cafe and has some great plans for the future. Right in the centre of Lindfield High Street. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Make sure you pop in when in the village.

What a shame this lovely local deli changed hands! We were regulars back when my young children and I were made to feel welcomed and given a large, generous babycinno for a pound, with emphasis on ensuring they got the temperature right and made us...More

I really wanted to like this place but was disappointed with the food and drink. We ordered coffee, hot chocolate, coffee cake and biscuits all of which were bland and sadly overpriced. The staff were lovely and raised this review from poor to average.
