Bloody excellent! Egg, bacon, sausage, fried slice or toast, beans or toms (fresh or tinned), saute potatoes, tea/coffee and toast or bread on the side, for about £4.50.
All nicely cooked and you can park across the road for nowt for an hour.
It's worth a visit just to read all the jokes and cartoons on the walls, actually.

£4.50 (or anything above) is a total rip off. Come to Eastbourne, cafe near station does a lovely fry up (gorgeous fried bread and mushrooms) for 1.99.
I would never pay more then 3 for a fried breakfast, you should know the sort of crap that goes into their meals. You don't think they buy the best stuff do you?

To be honest Juliet, £1.99 just for a piece of fried bread and mushrooms sounds a lot compared to what you get at Eddies. Why don't you go and try it, you would be pleasantly surprised I am sure..

For £1.99 you certainly are going to get the crap.
4.50 for a good fried breakfast is a good deal these days.

Juliet - For a cost of £1.99 you must be getting rubbish products. Assuming the premises are leased they have rent to pay and being near to Eastbournbe station that will not be a low rent. Add staff costs, business rates, VAT, utilities, etc and it will not leave much to be spent on the actual ingredients of the breakfast. I would have thought that a well cooked breakfast of a reasonable portion for under 5 is a good deal. In this life you get what you pay for, and believe me for 1.99 you are definately getting low grade food products.

Nah - like I said I would NEVER pay more then £3 for a fry up - it's not worth it. Got better things to spend my money on then cheap bacon and old bread. 4.50 or above is a total rip off.
Romeo - I never said it was JUST mushrooms and fried bread, lol, you get loads more then that.
For 1.99 I believe you get fried egg, 2 sausages, bacon, mushrooms, bread, baked beans/tomatoes...all very well done and tastes lovely. I'll be sticking with it!

And the sausages are excellent, not 95% rusk and floor sweepings like you get in some cafes.
Did you not get saute potatoes as well? I always get saute potatoes with mine. All really nicely cooked and not a bit greasy.

Funny how people are happy to love the greasy fry-up (however 'healthy' the sausages), yet at the same time be anti-McD (see other thread). It's ALL really unhealthy food. Have to say I've been shocked at the amount of mobility scooters I've seen in Lewes being used by younger, but obviously overweight people. Obesity is going to be THE major killer and drain on the resources of the NHS within 50 years if we don't wise up and start eating properly. I predict a time when fat people, smokers and drinkers will no longer be treated on the nhs for having brought their afflctions on themselves.

It's not compulsory to eat bacon sausage eggs and chips at what is now called The Cafe. There are plenty of other items on an ever changing menu. To perhaps suggest that it's fatties only is a bit harsh as well.

By the way, ALL fry-ups are greasy. They're fried in cooking oil..hello...

You are so wrong Juliet or blinkered I don't know which.
As Dave says cook a breakfast on a griddle and it's wonderful and not a bit of grease in sight.
Now if you can't raise a valid point butt out.

Supporter - did I say I was criticisng Eddie's fry-up?. I was talking about fry-ups in general - you know how conversations move on sometimes rather than getting stuck in the same groove ?
I've never been in Eddie's so can't comment on theirs specifically. Have to say I rather like the food in Casbah and a breakfast fry up in their costs about a fiver (according to my son).

Hate to disappoint you, "LITTLE boy" but my points were valid regarding the cafe in Eastbourne - which is what I meant. MOST fry-ups are greasy, yeah some aren't, who cares.

This thread is about Eddies not your so called cheap den where you would expect a second class greay fry-up at the price quoted.

Not all fry ups are greasy ???? they are cooked on a griddle ??? As the name suggests, fry ups are fried. Food cooked on a griddle is...wait for it...griddled, and therefore not a fry up.
