There are not many places that serve both Vegan & Vegetarian home made options locally so this is an ideal place to go should you want either of these as they are done so well and thoughtfully with so many flavours You can sit either inside or outside dependant on your Wishes or the English Weather!!

Myself and my partner went into the love cafe and being rather hungry I ordered the big breakfast. What a choice. Everything on the plate was very tasty and the portion was huge and I only just managed to finish it. Now set up for the day. Will visit again for the same.

I used to live in Hastings and the Love Cafe was always my favourite! Since moving away two years ago I hadn't visited for a while so decided to pay a visit. The food was amazing, lovely presentation, large (but not impossible) sized portion, and service was fabulous! I would say quite informal, and it always reminds me of a... More

Love going here for brunch on a Sunday and reading the papers available there; very relaxed and always buzzy and fun. Dogs allowed hurrah! One of my favourite places in St Leonards.

We had very little choice in that area but very glad we found this place by chance. Great place, great food, friendly staff, dog friendly, the wedges were lovely and the club sandwich was superb. You need to eat here!

This isn't 5star, but it's cosy, welcoming and tasty, all perfect for lunch. There's lots of interesting choices which makes choosing a dilemma, something I enjoy when I go out, as I want to have something I wouldn't make myself and this cafe is perfect for that. Reasonable prices and portions, and superb service, definitely will make this a regular

Came to the love cafe for breakfast, heard lots of lovely reviews about the place a few months back so we decided to give it a try. When first greeted we were already sitting at the table to which the waitress started to move everything around and start wiping the table down around us. The service was average but there... More

Thank you for your review. We like to make sure that everything is clean and apologise that the table was wiped down whilst you were sitting there (this only tends to happen at very busy periods). We are surprised by your comment that there wasn't a lot to choose from, we have over 50 items on our menu, and that... More
