This is a great place along the Undercliff between the marina and Rottingdean. Always a good choice of cakes as well as ice lollies. Bacon rolls also available - I was very tempted, maybe next time! Staff are always friendly and helpful.

The poppy seed rolls are delicious and there was a choice of sauces. We also tried the orange and lavender cake which was delicious. In fact, every cake I've tried (over many visits) has been delicious!
