Spent the morning here with Best of Eastbourne friends. Great coffee and food and a lovely atmosphere all served with a smile. Will be back again soon.
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!

Nearly a year on since my first review for Mugshots I have become a regular here for my meeting with local businesses. Kiran is so brilliant at looking after me and my guests I can't thank her enough.

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 😊
Visited this cafe yesterday evening for talk by creative force. So many things to look at in the cafe, old cameras, paintings, photographs, etc. Nibbles were very tasty and atmosphere very friendly.

Firstly, I have to say this place has a lovely atmosphere and was very comfortable on a hot afternoon. We were warmly welcomed by the lovely owner.
There is so much choice and the cakes looked fantastic, especially as they were mostly gluten free, vegan etc. You really would not know the difference. Tea was very nice with a choice of milk available for those with intollerances.
Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit and looking forward to returning for lunch. Give it a try - you won't regret it.

Pop in to Mugshots for a coffee or something delicious to eat. Kiran is an expert barista who'll serve you your coffee exactly as you like it. There are vegan options (surprisingly yummy) and a good choice of foods without being overwhelming. Quality over quantity. Kid friendly and dog friendly too. A lovely little spot for a quiet cuppa or to meet with friends. Highly recommended.
Visited this lovely little cafe in Meads this morning for the Best of Eastbourne networking event. What a great little gem. Smashing coffee and beautiful vegan & gluten-free cake. Lovely atmosphere and the owner is keen to cater for local needs. Will definitely go again.

Tried to pop in a few times but found you closed. No opening hours displayed. Are you just a café or do you give any photography services. You gave me the name of your photographer once but after a few calls I gave up.
