Good service. A limited menu but that was done well, and the pricing was fair. There was plenty of seating. Good value, and seemed popular with local people.

I took triple shot cappuccino with carrot cake. The cafe was tasty and strong, as I like. The cake was delicious. Interior downstairs is not the best, but ok, chairs are comfortable and outweighed by good coffee.

Grounds has a small frontage but inside is on two floors with lovely views of the High Street. Owners and staff are so helpful and the selection of coffee, cakes and other delights are wonderful ... Suggest you try a warm scone and jam mmmmm

It was a really nice place with really nice staff working there and I was served by these 2 girls and the service was great was served with a smile and they were polite.

Stopped of for a quick sandwich and was pleasantly surprised. The café is bigger inside than you would expect and we sat upstairs on the sofa's overlooking the high street which had a cosy feel. Excellent toasted sandwich with fresh ingredients on your choice of bread, baguette or panini. Fruit smoothie could be better, to much ice. Friendly staff.

Quite possibly the best latte I have ever had! A special blend roasted in Littlehampton. I have ordered some beans directly from them! Panini was very nice too!

Comfortable surroundings and friendly staff. Choice of formal tables or comfy sofas. Good range of sandwiches, in fact you choose your own mix of fillings. All the usual drinks available that you might expect. If you are lucky enough to get the table in the upstairs window, you can also watch the world go by.
