Best cafe for us in Eastbourne - in fact my children think it's the best in the world (this may be due to the fact they are totally spoilt whilst there!)
Good place to stop if you are walking, dog walking , cycling or just want somewhere for a good priced breakfast or lunch.
Family and dog friendly,relaxed atmostphere and good for big breakfast baguettes, homemade soup, toasted sandwiches and great coffee
Sits at the start of the South Downs way - so fantastic for the end of a long walk over the downs or to grab an icecream before you start walking.
If you become a regular then don't be embarressed when everyone sings Happy Birthday to you! The secret is now out about this litttle treasure - so if you are reading this Philamena save some seats for us!

A stroke of luck when we called into The Kiosk for a coffee over 5 years ago. The owners Yaz and Philomena make everyone welcome and it is a joy to experience the friendliness and community spirit that is ever present there. You will meet people from every walk of life, eat delicious fresh food, taste excellent coffee and enjoy good conversation, fun and laughter. I am a dog less dog lover so it has a special appeal for me and over the years I have seen most breeds of dogs, all well behaved and all falling from the charm of Philomena. So if this sounds like your cup of tea (yes, you can get that too) do go along, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

We first pop into this little cafe at the foot of the South Downs five years ago for a bottle of water for my bull dog titch, it was such a hot day with airborne air show on so they where very busy with a full house.
I was made to feel like I was a long lost friend so welcoming unlike some venues if your a dog owner you not always welcome! plus with it being so busy I was nice that the owners had time for everyone new and old that was five years ago.
We now make the trip down to Eastbourne 2-3 times a month making the kiosk our local with a 80 mile round trip well worth the trip plus we have made so many new friends at the kisok with our two bulldogs Daisy & Alfie who get special treets from the owners this family run kiosk is the most friendliest place in Eastbourne and we look forward to many more trips to the Sunshine Coast of Eastbourne 10/10

You won't get a warmer welcome anywhere else in the world than at The Kiosk. Philomena and Yas are the very best of hosts. Their friendly smiles make all visitors feel at home straight away. The food is delicious and always well-presented. Try everything on the menu. The friendly atmosphere at this most excellent of eateries will knock you bandy....Try it, you won't be disappointed I promise you!!
