I passed here on my way back from a work meeting after visiting another cafe in chichester the day before and I must say the comparison is big! Staff not friendly and food average a shame for chichester to have to host a cafe that does not live up to standards that the town presents.

We have reviewed this excellent Espresso bar before and it continues to be our favourite coffee stop in Chichester.
It has nice pastries and cakes - but still seems to conservative in the its range - and the choice is often poorer in the afternoon. A few more 'italian', cakes and pastries would be nice and a range of various small Cannoli, Sfogliatelle, Zeppole, Panpepato, plus some nice italian biscuits such as Ricciarelli or a nice tart such as crostata.
We are sure your customers would 'real' Italian accompaniments for the excellent coffee. Word of mouth plus a little promotion would soon mean even more regulars.

I have been searching for a really good...non chain (Costa, Starbucks etc) coffee bar in Chichester for a long time...and I have finally found the place.

Nestled in a little square in Chichester, Atiibassi is a lovely place and I have been a few times now.

I noticed another review saying they wont buy coffee from anywhere else now...and I would be inclined to agree. The coffee is really good...nice strong espresso coffee...and then you can have all the usual espresso based beverages such as cappucino, latte, mocha etc...or just enjoy the espresso eau natural :)

There are some seats outside...when the weather is good...and you can watch the world go by but the seats inside are comfortable.

The staff are really friendly and you dont get that "conveyer belt" feeling you often get at some of the chain places.

Basically...if you want to go to a coffee shop...for the coffee...either on your own...or with others...you wont find a better place than this.

Will be back there again soon!

This charming little cafe is now the only place I will buy a coffee based drink in chichester.
The staff are very friendly and there is a very relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy great tasting coffee and even better tasting ice cream
