Used to be a good place but on a recent visit to the Pantry for dinner realised that this place has changed. The staff are not as friendly as they used to be as the waitress spent more time on her phone and chatting between...More

We came for Saturday lunch. Found a table outside immediately which was a surprise. Menu a little expensive but then found that there was sushi and a burger joint attached. We had the best burgers for a reasonable price. Kids loved the thick shakes. Husband...More

Haven't been here for quite a long time do thought a revisit was in order. Avocado on toast was ordered straight off the menu. Whilst it was "nice" I wouldn't say it was memorable. Not super tasty but ingredients were fresh. Hubby ordered poached eggs...More

The Pantry has the best position in Brighton. The coffee is quite good. It can get quite busy especially on a nice day. There is plenty of room inside as well. I have found that the staff are not very friendly.

This place is always crowded but having eaten lunch here once I really can't see what the appeal is other than being the place to be seen and eat outside eating overpriced food. Lunch menu seems very limited if you just want wraps/sandwiches etc.
