There is a very good selection of cake. Lunch is also available. The staff are friendly and helpful. It's nice to see an independent coffee shop be so popular.

We took my Mum out for tea and came here as she likes it. We had to wait for a table. We had teas, coffees and some cake. It was all very pleasant. It’s nice to see an independent cafe.

Fancied a cuppa and wanted something independent. Visited the Bay Tree and is was lovely to have individual service. A simple breakfast, but we were left alone. Very nice! Would visit again.

A flying visit to Haywards Heath, needed a cuppa before we were on our way. Located in the courtyard just outside M&S and close to the short stay car park, this busy little cafe did just the job. A large outdoor seating area for when...More

Dropped in to the Bay tree for a quick lunch with a friend during her lunch break. We both chose the Thai soup which normally comes with bread but I had a gluten free pitta bread because of my intolerance. The soup was really delicious!...More
