My husband & I ate here and after waiting over 30 minutes received our meals. The veg was rock hard and the whole meal wasn't very nice. We may have gone in on an off day,but we won't be going back.I have received better service elsewhere.

Nice cafe with a good selection of home cooked food, sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes and cakes. There was a special board with soup and meals. We went for a traditional breakfast and cafe did a veggie version which was delicious for me. Traditional consisted of sausage, bacon, fried egg, beans, mushrooms, slice of good bread and either tea or filter... More

Very cafe like inside with painted table tops, a bit soulless and not the sort of place you feel like you want to stay a long time. However, the coffee was very good and the Carrot cake very nice. They had a special deal on cake and coffee, which seems to be available every day. The choice of cake is... More

Had a lovely freshly cooked set breakfast which was served politely and the coffee was delicious. There were some tables that had been recently painted and the smell was a little overpowering. Not sure if this is a new place but the decor seems unfinished? Would definatley return.

Pass this cafe nearly every day and wonder about popping in. Did so the other week. Bemused by 'decor'. Somehow doesn't fit with my understanding of a 'Lemon Tree' cafe, feels a little 'cold', but that's just a personal prejudice and nothing to do with food. Anyway, friendly waitress took order. Had a fried breakfast with a black coffee. Ok.... More

Clean and bright interior. Friendly service, Lasagna was OK but felt that it had been pre-cooked the day before and re-heated as it had hard edges. Would have ordered desserts but waitress spent so much time chatting to (presumably) friends that we did not bother. Having said that will probably try it once more as maybe we were unlucky on...

Small venue, poor food, over priced drinks and lack of choice of drinks, they kept running out of things. Totally underwhelmed

Nice clean and friendly place, good service and good reasonable priced fare. Nice menu with a good range of choices. The added bonus of a reduction for OAPs.

Been here quite a few times for various meals, sometimes excellent, sometimes not. The breakfast you take a chance on, sometimes it is fine, other times, when it comes up very overlooked, with the bacon so hard it is difficult to eat! The young waitress, Sarah, is a lovely girl, very efficient and very helpful. There is sometimes a woman... More

We'd walked from St Leonards to Bexhill over the Easter weekend and needed a little sustenance to get us back! Walking past the Lemon Tree we looked in and it seemed like a nice little place so we took a chance - we're so glad we did. The waitress was friendly and helpful but without being pushy or over-the-top and... More
