The biggest and best breakfast ever. Freddie and his wife Sally are so friendly. We went with our friends, who live in village, for breakfast. Made to feel welcome. Even ground me some coffee to take back to Somerset. It is now a 'must do' when we come to Sussex. Breakfast at Freddie's.

Stopped off for a coffee en route for walking in the South Downs. Lovely Italian owner provided perfect coffees and the best danish ever tasted - fresh, light, cinnamon, icing all just so. Ordered salmon sandwiches for the walk, generously filled, very tasty. Will take some of the panettone next time!

Passing through the quaint village, I stopped with my parents for scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and vine tomatoes. I had a lovely vegetarian sausage on a ciabatta bread, divine! Great Italian coffee not to be missed!Nice selection of Italian products which will make great Christmas presents!
