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.

I had an absolutely smashing mocha and red velvet cake here; however this is where my compliments end. I felt the portions were too small and very pricey- bad value for money. The new owner has let things slacken a bit- definitely recommend 'The Coffee Roasters' if you're in Lindfield. Lovely tea, coffee and cake with marvellous interiors! More than... More

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 be coming back. I had a delicious piece of pear and ginger cake but it... 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 sorry yours was not served to your taste. If you wished for a superior tea... 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 feel at home! On our recent visit, not only were we made to feel uncomfortable... 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.

A nice friendly non chain cafe and deli in Lindfield, usually very popular so can get busy at times. A good selection of cakes and savouries if you fancy a snack. A good selection in the deli section with lots of local cheeses and other local produce.
