I came here with two of my friends and i had the Mock Turtle Tea Blend, which was very delicious as they do make it themselves too. The service is always lovely, full of smiles and very welcoming. To eat I had the cheese and onion omelet with chips which was massive! The omelet was fluffy and light and it... More

Through the years I've visited the venue for Tea & Cakes - always enjoyable. However Breakfast was greatly overpriced @ £5.95 for one tea, one fried egg, one and a half slices of toast with garnish. Suggest travellers visit Figaro's in Kemptown for better value.

We as a family love this place. Wonderful cakes and mains, proper tea and good coffee. There is nothing modern about this place from the decor and cash register (no cards taken here) to the menu and the tea cups. Sausage, egg and chips, Welsh rarebit, Tomato soup, cream teas, rock cakes, giant doughnuts, all fresh and delicious. We've always... More

We had a fabulous lunch there this weekend. The food choices are huge and the staff friendly and welcoming. We wanted a slight change to once of their menu choices and this was not a problem. From omelettes, cakes and afternoon teas they have something for everyone.

Let me start by saying the only reason this place won't take a terrible review is because of the décor and also because of the food. We arrived there on the 31st of August around 4pm, and we waited for something to help us, the blod waitress couldn't be bothered, she barely looked at us, she was rude and just... More

Visited this lovely coffee shop twice during our stay in Brighton. Excellent range of cakes and tasty smoothies and coffee. Limited Gluten Free cakes but highly recommend the homemade meringues and cream... The afternoon tea and scones looked delicious as well....2 scones with cream and jam per person. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

Thank Calamero
