This little cafe is a little gem. Shabby sheik style.clean friendly. Reasonable prices and a nice cup of tea. Food mostly Chapattis or pancakes but with wonderfully varied fillings. Mine had aubergine roasted peppers and red onions with feta cheese yum

This cosy and friendly little cafe serves lovely food at very reasonable prices. Their toasted ciabatta sandwiches and savoury crepes are gorgeous and very cheap. Their coffee is excellent except they can't provide cream on the side, but I forgive them. Also their limited selection of cakes and pastries are really excellent, - try their carrot cake or their lemon... More

This is a great place to meet people and watch the world go by. The coffee is always good as they never stop looking for new types.The ciabattas are delicious and generously filled with quality ingredients.Easy to over indulge on the homemade cakes,especially the seeded slice,my favourite. Coffee is a very personal thing,even the Italians can make bad coffee. For... More

This place is run by the two most unfriendly guys in brighton. I had an issue there a few months back where I sat outside after purchasing a take away coffee to untangle the dog leads, and the owner came running out to tell me I needed to pay more to drink in!!! So, today I thought I'd go back.... More

We have been coming here ever since it first opened ten years ago. The coffee is some of the best in Brighton- Luca roasts his own beans. Cakes and cookies are all home made and delicious especially the carrot cake. Friendly atmosphere and generally busy. Most of the time, there just isn't room for buggies, but that doesn't mean children... More

I love the low key and relaxed atmosphere here. The food is just delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful. If you want noisy fast-food with screaming kids this place might not be for you. I really don't recognise the place from some of the negative reviews here though - try it for yourself and see. It's my favourite... More

I pop into this lovely little café quite a bit and really enjoy the ambience, friendly polite staff, coffee and food so would highly recommend the place to anyone. Being quite snug, I completely understand why they have the no buggy rule and don't quite understand why some people have taken offence on here! It's a completely reasonable request. I'm... More

I can't comment on the quality of the coffee as I never got to taste it! I sat on one of the outside tables with my medium size tired dog quietly at my side. I waited five to ten minutes and no one came. I thought it must be counter service so went to the door to ask. The unfriendly... More
