I still love this place for lunch - excellent range of fresh sandwiches, all day breakfasts and salads. Their soups this winter have been fab - my absolute faves are the bean chilli soup and the Butternut Squash and Peanut Butter one - SO GOOD!! When when when can we have them again! Please! thanks so much

In an area crammed with cafes and coffee shops The Laine Deli excels. We had wonderful breakfasts from a well thought out menu, with excellent coffee. The atmosphere was friendly and professional and we also liked the music! The whole thing was great value for money and we can't wait to return. This place really deserves to do well.

We both chose our lunch from their breakfast menu and it was really good, the portions were generous and really tasty. What really impressed was their attention to detail and getting everything spot on. Because the yolk in the fried egg in my meal had broken just as they were plating it up, they served the meal but said they... More

Visited last weekend with friends. The service was slow and all our food arrived at different times (and some orders were wrong) but for me it didn't take away from the fact the food was excellent. Best sandwiches in Brighton. I'll be back.

I visit a supplier of mine for work regularly, which is just around the corner from this place. This whole road is full of fantastic coffee shops, so the standard of all of these is fantastic. At breakfast, I had a great latte and croissant, and I went back for lunch to have smoked salmon with scrambled eggs on wholemeal... More

Not a bad word to say about this place. Just what you need for a reasonable priced lunch where you can sit and relax or just grab a quick bite to eat. I've visited three times in the last month. The baguettes and salads are delicious - you can tell they use fresh ingredients and I love the fact that... More

I went for a couple of take out sandwiches at 10.15. It took nearly 25 minutes as coffees orders post my order were being made instead of my sandwiches. I requested real butter not margarine and then watched the chap pour boiling hot butter out the microwave onto bread! I declined and asked for fresh bread. The tuna mayo was... More
