What can I say about this place?... maybe the question is what can I say on here? I'm going to have to censor this review before I write it. In a word it's terrible. I'm from London, a place that's not famed for fish and chips yet this is worse than every place I have visited in London. Additionally it's... More

If you want a quick English breakfast near the seaside at an affordable price, then this a nice place to go. It's quite busy and can get quite noisy though.

A 24 hour restaurant, very useful for backpackers, toilets very clean, English Breakfast is not gargantuan, but is tasty & reasonable at £4.99 (considering Brighton prices!). (slight minus, I prefer not to have my private life yakked about, whilst I'm in the same room, discretion will bring better quality of custom). Julie Lee-McGovern

Food really hot and tasty. Not greasy, perfectly cooked. Staff friendly and helpful. The only fault is that the cafe is quite small so there's limited space

I have never had bad treatment here. Staff of many different nationalities are pleased to help and offer quick service. Recently refurbished, it is a cafe rather than a restaurant but the food is to a good standard.

Visited in the evening of a Saturday, which was probably my mistake as my friend and I were treated as if we were drunken idiots that needed to be quickly moved along. We had to wait in a long queue and when we finally got served the man didn't even look me in the eye and asked what did I... More

By the fact this place is open 24 hours 7 days a week the food is average but reasonably priced and outside area in summer. There is a stale smell of cooking and it could do with a clean up but you get access at anytime so it isnt too bad.

We have been here a couple of times whilst in brighton, so decided to have breakfast here on Saturday morning. We both ordered breakfasts and they came out in reasonable time. The food was hot and reasonably priced.
