I was tempted by the display of quiches and other home made looking dishes displayed in the window. Sadly my lunch of ham and tomato quiche with 3 salads didn’t deliver. Pastry on the quiche was a bit soggy but the main problems was the salads. Potato salad used (possibly leftover) patatas bravas but with an unpleasantly robust dressing - tasted like a load of paprika? Kale salad was big pieces of kale including stalk, large chunks of raw courgette and lumps of flavourless tomato. Coleslaw was the nicest - fresh tasting and nice flavours. I think the salads would have benefitted from some fresh herbs, seasoning and just more care, attention and love. Coffee was weak and like warm. Given the number and variety of cafes on St James street offering excellent cafe and fresh, tasty food I think Bona Foodie needs to up its game.

The food has been great everytime. But I will never go back. The people there are rude and miserable. I gave it one last try to see if the attitude has changed.. nope. If interactions with people matter to you. Leave well away.

Stopped in for breakfast after the worst hotel breakfast in nearby hotel. Coffee was delicious! Lots of great food. We bought food to take home. Brighton, you are very fortunate to have a place like this. From now on when we go to Brighton we will not miss this delight.!

Great xx

Met here for a lunch before travelling home after the bank holiday mod weekender...

The choice of so many homemade quiches, salads etc.... was superb.

Something for everyone.

Great place, great value.

Fantastic veggie 'light' breakfast - veggie sausage, beans, toast etc. Great coffee and lovely way to start the day. We have eaten lunch here before and the food is really good and very reasonably priced. They also have a great deli choice including plenty of veggie dishes to takeaway. Great local feel to it.
