We drive passed the turning to Love All Cafe regularly but never new it was there until I looked up tea rooms in Eastbourne and saw it was number one and thought we must go. Bit worried that we might feel out of place it overlooking tennis club but couldn't have been more wrong, instantly we were made to feel really welcome. We visited on a dull wet day, so was fairly quiet which was nice, I had the wonderful parsnip, apple and parmesan soup which was one of the nicest I have ever had served with a warm ciabatta bread. After our lunch we had a cream tea, warm fruit scone each, small jar of jam and fresh cream and large pot of tea for £7 for two. All the food was wonderfully presented and tasted wonderful. Considering one lady was having to take orders, prepare and serve food and take orders we were made to feel welcome throughout our visit. If the sun had been shining there is lots of outside seating to enjoy the wonderful food.

Dear RH1-7

We're thrilled you had a nice time and that you were made to feel welcome. Whilst we are a lovely but odd combination of tennis club and cafe, we very much welcome everyone ... whether you prefer cake or forehands!

Thank you for your kind words

This place is a real gem of a place - everyone who works here is incredibly kind, fab with the kids, and amazing at baking- it's wonderful!
We've come here for a few years now, and the kids love it (esp the freshly baked scones!), and I love it as it's ALWAYS service with a smile...
as a wheelchair user, there is wheelchair access, and an accessible loo - but best of all 'can do' staff who enable you to get the most out of your coffee stop. Can't recommend highly enough.

I came across the cafe because I'm interested in tennis but not the usual snobby clubs. I was welcomed with open arms and have always felt at home here.

I often visit the cafe even when not playing tennis and recommend it to everyone.

All the staff are caring and friendly, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is fantastic. With so much space around the cafe kids can play whilst parents relax.

Definitely the best thing to happen in the park for some years.

I popped in the other day after Pete Sampras name dropped this place on the Wimbledon coverage this year and indulged in some freshly made scones, which were frankly absolutely bloody marvellous. Then I had some home made cake, which was even better than the scones, which seems mad as the scones were so good. I then sat for a while and watched the people playing tennis, and that made me feel like I was burning off the scones and the cake, which was nice.
