About the Sussex Innovation Centre cafe

This cafe accessed through the main and back entrance of SINC on the ground floor offers socially responsible coffee and healthy lunches with ingredients from local suppliers.

There is also a focus on build-your-own premium salads, freshly made sandwiches, award-winning sausage rolls and reasonably priced meal deals.

Some of the money made from the barista-quality coffee available goes to saving the orangutans in the Sumatran jungle.
