“Lovely Grilled Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

A very different experience eating a breakfast on the Top Deck of a Double Decker Vintage Bus in Hastings!
Good Coffee and a lovely breakfast that was grilled so no fat/oil on the plate or smell that you would often get with some cafés.
Staff are nice and friendly.
Double Decker breakfast is the best value as it includes tea or coffee whereas the veggie breakfast (home made yummy sausages) doesn't so if you have coffee it is more expensive to have no meat which is quite a shame!
Overall a good experience and nice food - recommended - Enjoy.

“Great Food, Service and price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

I am a local builder who not only struggles to find a decent local breakfast, but have trouble parking my van anywhere. That's all changed as I've found The Double Decker Cafe next to Stamco in Hastings. What great food, service and price. Left van in easy, FREE parking area they have, sat in sun on their decking area outside the great looking bus. Staff were really friendly and also purchased some delicious bread and fresh cream cakes to take with us, as they said they have a little shop on a Friday. The Double Decker breakfast we all had was really good, could tell good quality ingredients used, and the bread we had was fresh from their bakery, which is right next to the bus (can't get better than that). Have been now on a work day on many ocassions, and am taking my wife and little ones this Saturday for breakfast; they're going to have their picture taken with the bus drivers hat on in the drivers seat (my youngest is a bit of a bus fanatic!). Well worth a visit.

“Quirky and fun….”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Popped in here to have breakfast this morning…..great value and delicious food! SatNav will take you to the wrong location - just carry on straight to the end of the road (industrial estate), you'll see the double decker on the left!

Lovely food and a nice seating area to enjoy brekkie in the sun, a lot of locals do go here too….which is a good sign! Served very quickly and tasted very fresh…which it was more local to us but will defo be going back.

“Quality food on a bus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

Love it, this place is fab. Expected the normal "caf" grub but was pleasantly surprised. It's not just a gimmick on a bus, although it looks great. You can tell its quality ingredients and freshly baked bread from their bakery next door. Sat out side on the decking area and had the double decker breakfast, great value and taste in the gorgeous sunshine, highly recommend.

“One of the Best Full English Breakfasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

We found this Double Decker Cafe on Tripadvisor and thought our 6 year old would really enjoy the novelty. What we found was a great cafe with indoors (top of the bus) or outdoors seating and a really impressive full english breakfast. With having regular fry ups I was only expecting the usual from any cafe but the food was well cooked and the fresh bread from the bakery next door was lovely. A great place to go for good food. Also sitting on the top of the bus brought back memories of younger days sitting at the back of the bus with my now wife. Get the directions sorted before you head off as in an off beat area but saying that it was quite easy to find. I hope you enjoy as we really did.
