About us + Why we’re here
Sussex Mother is an informal, family friendly cafe, shop and play area housed in two adjoining poly tunnels in Hassocks. Our family run business is about seasonal food, excellent coffee and homemade cakes. We sell handmade ceramics, jewellery & home wares from local makers and have a free soft play and reading area. We want your children to be engaged for (at least) as long as it takes you to enjoy a coffee and slice of cake.
This has been a dream of ours for years; we like cooking and we like feeding people. In our opinion some of the the finest produce in the UK comes from Sussex so we're committed to using local producers. We hope that at some point in the future we can grow some of the produce we use, right here in the tunnels. We don’t have a microwave, we make as much as possible from scratch and the only thing in our freezer is ice cream.
We hope reading this makes you want to visit, you are very welcome. You can read a bit more about our story here.
