Lovely coffee shop in village, has a great range of cakes and drinks, the banoffee pie was very tasty. The decor is lovely with nice tables and comfortable chairs
Pictures on wall are very interesting and look good.
Kiran is very friendly and good host. Would visit again for more pie
A very cosy atmosphere for all! Lovely food, lovely cakes and lovely staff!

It was a very cold day so a friend and I both chose toasted sandwiches, mine ham and cheese and hers tuna sweetcorn and cheese. They both were served with crisps and a salad garnish. Everything here, sandwiches rolls etc are made to order and there is a great variety to choose from. And the cakes..... try the giant fondant fancies or giant bourbon biscuits! And the coffee isn't bad either. Good veggie and vegan options too. Super friendly service.
THE best coffee in Eastbourne. Great choice of cakes, lovely lunches but the best is the always friendly, helpful and just all round lovely person, the owner Kiran. Can't wait for my next visit!
Reply from Tall Tails Pet Emporium and Grooming: Lynn you review put a huge smile on my face thank you so so much for your support! Look forward to your next visit on Saturday. I’m lucky to have friends and customers like you 🥰 x
Mugshots has been part of the Meads Street community now for 2 years. From the day they opened there was always a warm welcome and it is a pleasure to be served with a great selection of food and warm beverages. They are dog friendly and have recently opened a pet emporium in the basement. Mugshots also sells artwork and gifts. And you can hire the cafe for events too. Well done Kiran for being on of the best retailers in our area.
Reply from Tall Tails Pet Emporium and Grooming: Jack I’m so chuffed you enjoy Mugshots. Thank you so much for all of your support since day 1. I’m forever grateful to you and all my regulars who keep encouraging our growth. And to read such wonderful feedback makes my day. Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely comments and for using us for your private events. It’s always a pleasure x
I visited Mugshots Cafe today and ordered a cappuccino. It was definitely the best cappuccino I've had in ages! It's so disappointing to go to other cafes locally that serve poor cappuccinos that today was a very pleasant surprise. Coupled with the excellent service and the cosy, welcoming milieu, the whole experience was a great relief from the dismally rainy and windy weather! I'll be back for another visit.
Reply from Tall Tails Pet Emporium and Grooming: Andy your feedback is so kind and I really appreciate you going out of your way to leave us a review. It was great meeting you and I’m very pleased you enjoyed your cappuccino that’s put a smile on my face. Look forward to seeing you again 😊
So I put in a special request. We were having a breakfast meeting with thebestofeastbourne and I requested granola and yoghurt beforehand. This is not normally on the Mugshots menu. Kiran, however, pushed the boat out, not only providing lovely granola and yoghurt, but also strawberries to go on top! Mugshots really does keep its customers at the heart of what it does. Lovely food, lovely service, with you in mind.
Reply from Tall Tails Pet Emporium and Grooming: Aww 🥰 thank you very much Teri it was no trouble at all and so glad you enjoyed it as you are a Granola Goddess and I didn’t want it to disappoint!
Mug shot cafe & deli is a wonderful place!

I love this cafe. The owner is extremely friendly and welcoming each time. They serve beautiful cakes and lunch wraps too. I would highly recommend trying it. It is also dog friendly for those with pets. :)
Really good, unique cafe/deli. Very comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Great coffee, great food with lots of choice and flavours. Something for everyone any time. Can't recommend Mugshots enough. The owner is lovely too - she always has a smile and is helpful with anything you need.

Reply from Tall Tails Pet Emporium and Grooming: Thank you for the lovely review Tim. I’m very grateful you took the time to leave your feedback and really pleased you enjoyed your first visit to Mugshots. Look forward to seeing you on your next visit 😊
Today I took another friend / colleague, Lena, the Musical Director of our International Voice orchestra, for a lovely chat and coffee at Mugshots. So, when you ask for a Portuguese custard tart at Mugshots, you don't just get a tart dumped on a plate. Oh no! You get a strawberry dusted with icing sugar too, delivered with fabulous coffee (in my case a large cortado with oat milk) and a bright smile. I tell you, please don't just pop in because you happen to be passing. Go out of your way! Kiran not only dishes out comfort in the form of food, drinks and warmth, but she also promotes special events at Mugshots. Last but not least, the cafe is dog friendly and you can purchase lovely things from the dog and cat basement. Woof!
Reply from Tall Tails Pet Emporium and Grooming: What a wonderful review thank you so so much for taking the time to leave your feedback you’re so kind. It’s always a pleasure catching up with you and was lovely to meet Lena today. Look forward to hosting another event with yuh and seeing you very soon x
I had a meeting at Mugshots Cafe and can honestly say its one of the warmest, friendliest cafes I’ve ever been to. I wouldn’t hesitate in returning, and cannot recommend this place highly enough!
Reply from Tall Tails Pet Emporium and Grooming: Thank you so so much for your wonderful review Nathan your kind words are very much appreciated and I’m so pleased you felt welcomed it was a pleasure meeting you. Look forward to seeing you again 😊

Thank you for being so supportive and I love your regular visits as it’s always great to catch up. Also a big thank you for using Mugshots as a meeting venue I’m very grateful and it’s always a pleasure to meet your guests!
Mugshots Cafe is a bright and friendly place, one that makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door! I loved the decor and items on display but more importantly the superb, friendly and cheerful service. A great place to relax with a hot drink or to have a meeting. The smoothies are also really good! I would visit here again without hesitation!
Reply from Tall Tails Pet Emporium and Grooming: Overwhelmed by your lovely review Mark thank you very much for taking the time out to leave your feedback. It was great to meet you and to have such wonderful comments from you has made my day. Look forward to seeing you again 😊
