A short walk from the station in the heart of Eastbourne, Deliciously Gorgeous is a delightful café run by warm and bubbly staff. Outside you’ll find pretty tables set up under an original awning; inside, the pink and black colour scheme, mosaic entryway and ceiling chandelier are instantly inviting. On the left as you enter is a beautiful display of chocolates and other sweet treats; to the right is a selection of drinks, coffee, smoothies and ice cream. The Deliciously Gorgeous team believes in offering the very best service to customers, and this really comes across in their friendly manner and commitment to using the highest quality ingredients. The extensive menu provides a wide selection of great lunchtime bites including sharing boards, sandwiches and tasty jacket potatoes. There’s also an excellent vegan menu, with tasty treats to tempt even the most ardent carnivore.
We were seated at a table on the mezzanine level overlooking the café below as we enjoyed a hearty lunch. My partner tucked into a baked potato with juicy chicken tikka and a refreshing salad, accompanied by a melon refresher smoothie. I thoroughly enjoyed an innovative take on a sausage sandwich, with roasted butternut squash, sweet potato and paprika sausages with chipotle sauce. I also sampled one of Deliciously Gorgeous’ wonderfully rich luxury hot chocolates, with marshmallows and chocolate twirls. No wonder Deliciously Gorgeous is so popular.
