Our mission and vision
cafe et confiserie boutique
When we took over Deliciously Gorgeous in 2015, our aim was to create a place where anyone could come for something to eat or drink and feel at home. We particularly wanted to create a place where vegetarians, vegans and people with food intolerances would be able to find something they could enjoy. We’re really excited about our growing range of vegan meals, and our gluten-free, vegan coffee and walnut cake has proved so popular that we no longer stock the original variety. We also stock vegan, gluten free raw organic chocolate on our chocolate counter.
We have been increasing our stock of Teapigs tea, both in the shop and the coffee shop. We now stock 21 different varieties of Teapigs tea, a really high-quality brand offering great-tasting teas which can also aid common medical complaints – ask our staff for more details!
We also welcome families, providing high chairs, a baby-change area and menu-items such as our caffeine-free babyccino and our animal-shaped chocolates, which are really popular with the little ones. There’s no need to drag your push-chair upstairs either, as we have plenty of seats downstairs.
Deliciously Gorgeous first opened in 2010 as a supplier of wedding cakes, and quickly gained a reputation for the quality of our products. Not only do our cakes taste wonderful, they look it too – each mouthful is a masterpiece in miniature.
After a short while, Deliciously Gorgeous the cake designer became Deliciously Gorgeous the confiserie (or confectioner) with the addition of our chocolate counter, where we sell fine Belgian chocolates which are ideal as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone special. We also started stocking lots of delicious cakes, chocolates, speciality teas and other treats to take away, and began offering boxed chocolates and hampers to order (contact us for details).
More recently we have opened up the premises to provide both upstairs and downstairs seating, and added a coffee shop and lunch menu. Our baked potatoes have become famous in Eastbourne for their size and taste, but we’re best known for our hot chocolate; it’s made using an Italian recipe, and its rich flavour and thick texture is the height of indulgence.
