It's not just the food, which is always wonderful - fresh, imaginative, hearty fare; salads that are colourful, tasty and generous; It's also the ambience. The Buttercup has such a lovely inclusive warmth; friendly staff; and the temptation to just lounge all day sampling soups, cakes and teas!

Delicious slabs of cake, lovely fresh tea varieties and magical surroundings indoors and with crocheted covers if your legs get chilly sitting outside.

What more do you need?

Not sure I was in the same establishment as other reviewers as we found the service here to be top notch! and I can assure you we have no family/friends connection! Popped in after recommendations from local friends to try out their cake. Despite being just about to close, their welcoming team immediately invited us in and we basked in their sunshiny courtyard for over an hour, enjoying a fine selection of cakes and coffee. One satisfied birthday girl, with full tummy, having enjoyed an impromptu "Happy Birthday to boot!" We will be back.

Comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff. Had breakfast, which was prepared fresh. Great portions and lovely bacon. All locally sourced.
Intend go back again.

Sadly it seems many are swayed by the setting of this cafe, and even sadder - the staff do not match it in any way. Trust me - there are better places in Lewes to sit, eat, drink, enjoy life - overpriced, mean portion control, I have a feeling some reviewers are friends of friends and family! You will find customer service is NOT alive and well at this establishment - take your money elsewhere - and enjoy...
