Welcome to Roots Café & Farmshop in Eastbourne

Roots is an urban farmshop, a deli, a greengrocer and a coffee shop all rolled into one.

We freshly prepare all of our breakfasts, lunches and sandwiches using locally sourced produce where possible.

Our fresh salad and vegetables are locally grown and pesticide free, traditionally grown in season.

All of our delicious cakes and tray bakes are handmade on the premises.

We also use a local butcher to supply our meat on a daily basis.
