Visited this quirky & quaint establishment today. Average service. Nice latte, average price. Shame that chairs were uncomfortable. Also saucers and spoons dirty.

Have now visited this little café several times. The owners are both very welcoming and cannot do enough to help. The service is excellent. It is very quirky but that is great as it is so good to visit somewhere so unlike a costa coffee. Hot meals delicious as are the snacks. Huge variety of teas and coffees.

Cute little café with great charm. Had tea, coffee and the 'crumble of the day' with cream, it was great!

This little cafe in a backwater part of Old Town Eastbourne we discovered by accident. All freshly made and with a friendly smile; not expensive either

Found this by accident and i will definately go back. We had tea and cakes. Proper tea with proper cups and lovely home made victoria sandwich and scones with jam and cream. Perfect for a wet miserable bank holiday. It is quite small and quirkey , run by two very nice people.

Three of us had lunch here last week as we were in the area and hungry. The chaps who run it are very welcoming and sweet, and the decor is quaint and quirky. However, we did all think it was rather overpriced for what it was, a very basic macaroni (made with Penne not macaroni for some reason) and cheese... More

Exceptional food in a very tiny coffee house.They also sell coffee beans and tea in packets.Coffee very good with plenty of choice.Situated in a back street in the Old Town area it is worth making some effort to find.
