A very nice cafe in central Hastings. Great coffee tea. The scone was very good with lovely homemade jam. The others in our group had breakfast which was very good. The cafe itself is lovely and quaint and very clean.

Had lunch here on Saturday. Three of us all had delicious freshly prepared food. Generous portions and excellent value for money. Served by friendly, welcoming staff. I will definitely return when I'm next in Hastings.
