What a shame. I loved this little coffee shop in Littlehampton, lovely coffee, tea and cakes. Turned up one day to meet someone there for coffee and it was closed/empty. No sign on the door so don't know if it is being refurbished or it has been abandoned (looked kinda abandoned unfortunately).

I often call in here for afternoon tea and cake, the decor is lovely and relaxing - country vintage (without the chintz!) and mis-matched wooden tables and chairs. The cakes are always fresh (try the carrot cake!) and tea is served with lovely vintage china.

What a nice surprise to find this little bistro, very friendly, spotless and clean, cute decor. I had a lovely table by the window to people watch while enjoying my coffee and pancakes. The menu was varied and interesting and the homemade cakes on the counter looked amazing, so much so I had one to take away! I also noticed... More

Walking around littlehampton deciding where to eat with the wife and two kids. Finally decide to walk into the little coffee house as it it faired well on trip advisor.

Alan W, Owner at Little Coffee House and Bistro, responded to this review

I was disappointed to read this review. There was no excuse for this; if customers are handed menus they should be told at the time if anything is unavailable rather than make choices and be told subsequently. On this occasion however, at 1.20 on a Sunday, the full menu should have been available. I'm sorry our standard of service on... More

We popped in here because it looked clean and tidy.Had nice cappaciono coffees.We didn't eat but must say that the cakes on display looked nice,as did the food being served up around us.A nice touch was having sugar tongues to pick up mixed sugar lumps from bowls,instead of tea spoon in bowl which we have seen before.

Other cafes may have a view - if you can get a seat in amongst the noisy crowd - but this one has the food and delight factor. My advice is admire the river as you stroll along the bank - then avoid the rather plastic and over-crowded obvious choice(s) by the river or at the front -- and get... More

I drink a regular cup of coffee there, love sitting in the window seat and watching Littlehampton walking by. The café is small but perfectly formed, nice and fresh, clean furniture, not cluttered and very country although the chairs are a bit noisy when scraped along the floor– that irritating finger nails on a blackboard sound! Last week I thought... More
