YET more coffee shops are opening up in Eastbourne Town Centre…

The Stop Eastbourne is a new cafe opening at 5 Gildredge Road into what was Elite lettings and property management.

There has been a huge number of comments online about whether we have too many coffee shops in Eastbourne.

Well, The Stop Eastbourne doesn’t think so.

It said: “We do believe that there is enough market for both of us (it’s right by Poppyseed). It’s not about a competition: they will keep having their market with their strengths and we will have ours.

“More coffee shops means that the town is growing. It would be very sad if we would see only shops closing and none opening.

“People tend to drink more coffee nowadays.”

“We are very excited. Hopefully we will be open very soon!”
