We have been to The Buttercup Cafe on a number of occasions as their coffee is, we think, the best in Lewes. This time we had an early lunch as well as coffee, of course and it was delicious. My husband had a huge bacon...More

A great place for tasty home- cooked lunches in a relaxed atmosphere. Service very quick.Courtyard is great on a warm sunny day and the adjoining antique showrooms are interesting.

Booked table for 3 for breakfast. You can order from lovely selection to make your individual breakfast plate. I had mushrooms and toast with houmous and leaves. Finished with good cappuccinos.

Visited for the first time yesterday and had a lovely leisurely lunch. The cafe is situated in a quirky little courtyard area that is hidden away. The decor is colourful and interesting, lots of bright colour decorations and a couple of sofas plus wooden tables...More
