I like this shop

A welcome alternative to the clone-town shops and supermarkets that make up most of Eastbourne's town centre. Lots of organic items. Which is great because there aren't any other organic suppliers for miles unless you count supermarkets [I don't because mass production often results in lower standards inc lower organic standards] Eastbourne does not have the demand for health food that Brighton does, so unfortunately no fresh pizza as there is at Infinity. As other reviewers have pointed out, the owner can be idiosyncratic. I find that refreshing. If you are the sort of person who prefers shopkeepers to be fake and emit robotic niceness, and if you are so entitled that a shopkeeper with a mind of his own gives you a fit of the vapours, then this is not the shop for you!

Pros: Organic produce, Friendly staff

A horrible experience

You aren’t allowed in the shop unless you ring a bell. When I did this the owner very reluctantly allowed me in but refused to let my partner in. He also yelled at me for picking an item up and looking at it (not that I should need to justify this, but I’m short-sighted). Truly hellish experience, presided over by the Basil Fawlty of health food shops. Avoid!

Pros: None

Cons: Misanthropic owner

Weird experience

Sign on the door saying “No Browsers”, had to knock on the door to be let in. We were then told only one of us would be allowed to come in and shop. Me and my partner decided to not bother. No idea how a business like this is still going.

Bizarre experience.

Don't bother going. Bizarre experience today. Went to the shop and couldn't open door but saw male owner and another lady inside. He came and answered door and Iasked if they were open. He said yes and Iwent in. He then asked me what I wanted. I wanted several particular items but also to have a look around and see what they had in so I said "Oh I'm just browsing". He said"Oh well we dont do browsing in this shop which is why the door is locked. I left!So a shop that doesn't like customers and obviously doesn't actually want to sell anything. Please dont waste your time going there. Plenty of other good health food shops around who actually would like your custom!

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Doesn't want customers to come in and look around!, Rude

Horrible staff

Horrible experience with the man who runs the shop. Next time when I need some stuff I'll take the train to Brighton for sure. How can you own a vegan shop and name it sunny foods with that attitude....

Pros: vegan options

Cons: expensive, extremely rude staff

Everything we need for a plant based, eco-friendly life

We regularly go here for our vegan treats and certain staples. The prices are in line with other specialist health food shops in East Sussex as far as I can tell, and it's certainly cheaper than getting on a train to Brighton to stock up.

Pros: Plenty of good food for vegans

I wouldn’t recommend

The selection of items isn’t that great. I went there to shop twice and both times the staff was extremely rude. The second time I was there a man was serving the shop and he was so rude to me I left in tears.

Cons: Expensive, Rude staff
