Stopped here for lunch on our day trip to Bexhill. Nice sunny place with friendly staff. Had a great bacon and mushroom omelette followed by tea cakes. They have a nice garden out the back too.

Stopped off for a light afternoon snack midweek with my husband whilst out shopping and was pleasantly surprised by the fresh delicious produce and friendly staff. We were first attracted by the delicious home cooked cakes in the window. My husband order a coffee and a salmon and cream cheese sandwich and I ordered the Spanish antipasti dish of serrano...

This is a small cafe but its very friendly. Endless menu of drinks. Spanish swiss influence food. The salads are amazing. Get there early as they sell out of food quickly. The cheese scones are amazing.

We popped in here as our normal cafe was closed, and I have to say it was very nice. Service was very efficient and the young man was very polite and friendly. We just had teacake and the chocolate orange fudge cake which was delicious, with our coffees, but looking at the other plates of food around, it all looked... More

I've been to this Café more than 5 times now, their Russian salad is highly recommended. I am Gluten Free and they can cater for that, just make them aware. Sue is very friendly and a great hostess. It is a small café, so to guarantee your place I would recommend booking. They run a very good Christmas menu too,... More

Every time we visit Bexhill we make a beeline for this cafe. The menu is different and the food has never failed to impress. Lovely, fresh, home cooked food. Subtle flavours that compliment each other, an unusual mix of Mediterranean and Swiss. Be adventurous! Try the tapas and the daily special. A nice friendly atmosphere too.

Thank StationZ

Sue and I invite you to enjoy something of the continental cafe culture here inside or weather permitting, 'Alfresco', in our lovely south facing garden.

Our menu is full of suggestions of what you can order and there is also a sandwich menu and one for our tea and coffee too.

For our cakes, desserts and specials; just pop in and ask about todays specials. There is also plenty of choice for vegetarians (vegans too) and we love to cater for children.

We shop on Western Road every day for our meat and vegetables. We choose our suppliers carefully and aim to produce the finest ingredients, locally sourced or produced.

Our coffees and teas are of the best quality and wherever possible from Rainforest Alliance producers.

Your food is prepared to order so please be patient. The cafe can be very busy at certain times of the day, however you can be sure we will always try to serve you as quickly as we can. Please make yourself at home and peruse our menus before ordering.

We hope you will enjoy your 'visita' to our cafe.
