Had a lovely breakfast here. Loved that they welcomed my dog . Friendly service and excellent food. Just one thing I would change, hate pre sliced bread. If they had bread that was home cut the whole experience would be perfect Love the sausages, so tasty

Love the name of this place, reminds me of another place with the same name in West Wales. However this is much better. Lovely food.

Thank you for your kind words. We pride ourselves on our breakfasts all of which are cooked to order which means it may take longer to get to the table but as many customers say: "It was worth the wait". Hope to see you again soon. More

When in Hastings we always have coffee here, I like good coffee with depth, LOGG has it, fantastic. Today we went back for snack lunch, homemade veggie soup, pate with marmalade chutney and wonderful large pieces of fresh bread with creamy butter. The staff are so nice, the young lady serving has a wonderful manner, great customer service. The loos... More

I've eaten here 3 times and each time has been lovely. I agree with a previous review that this place isn't overly enticing from the High St, but the food's always been excellent and staff friendly. I'll be returning there. And to the review titled Katie which was scathing about their falafels - there's nothing wrong with falafels coloured green... More

A bit hard to notice this place when you walk fast along the High Street and doesn't look very impressive from this side but when you lucky to be there on the sunny day ask for the seating in the back garden. Really nice atmosphere like in private "secret garden". Intentionally a bit tatty makes lovely romantic atmosphere, especially with... More

Thank you for your very kind review. The team were very pleased to read your comments and your appreciation. We believe the secret of our breakfast is twofold: We only buy quality ingredients and everything is cooked to order. It may make our breakfasts slightly more more expensive and make take a little longer to reach the table but as... More

Really enjoyed our sausage breakfast here, everything good quality and good coffee. Service a little awkward and could do with a radio on or something to create a bit of atmosphere. Would definitely return, one of best breakfasts I've had in Hastings.

Many thanks for your review. Pleased you enjoyed your breakfast and the coffee.
