Have visited quite a few times for breakfast and have to say I've never been disappointed. Friendly efficient service. Good coffee and some really good Eggs Royale!

Came here around 10.30am before visiting the uni. The place looks cool plenty of Alice in wonderland references. Had hot chocolate and beetroot chocolate cake, wife had tea and croissant. Hot chocolate was nice but nothing special, cake was lovely though. Really chocolatey which probably made the drink taste ordinary. Tea is tea and the croissant was a good size... More

I loved the vegetarian food and the staff were friendly too. We ate there two days in a row and both meals were very tasty. I'm certainly going back next time I'm in Brighton.
