“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Just had the most wonderful lunch at La Rusta. Poached eggs with goats cheese (perfectly cooked) on a large pretzel bread with a fresh rocket and cherry tomato salad. My son had a lovely fresh sausage baguette. Washed down with a pot of tea and all for about 8 pounds! Friendly service too!

This place is a real find amongst the ubiquitous 'chains' and greasy spoons of Crawley. A local business which deserves to be supported. Fantastic.

“Little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled across this place whilst looking for somewhere for breakfast. I had the white chocolate which was divine and the eggs Benedict. It wall all lovely, fresh ingredients. Great staff and very well priced. Certainly worth a visit!

“Great Pizza's and Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

This has to be the best café in Crawley and they serve the most delicious pizza's, they beat the usual Pizza Express, Prezzo options hands down both on quality and value. No alcohol served so perhaps take your own bottle of wine. Coffees are of decent strength and flavour too. Its great to see a good local business and we will continue to support.

“Best place to eat in Crawley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

As someone said its like a hidden gem in crawley. Service is always with a smile and a friendly face. Top ingredients which are also fresh, so if you got bored of costas plastic cookies and muffins, try alex's fresh dessert section. Also they serve best pizza ever and for 5-6£ only ! You cannot go wrong with la rusta!
