Reasonable prices for brunch, it was extremely busy, only had to wait a few minutes for a table, was approached by waitress within minutes of sitting down - great service all around, yummy food, highly recommend.

Popped up here on Cox night. Was a beautiful night, decides to dit outside. Food was amazing, a cut above and presented well. Prices were OK, a little pricey maybe but the serves were decent. The only down side yo the great night was the service. We had no napkins as we sat down, and no one took our drinks... More

This is a rather pricey, trendy restaurant in Brighton with a casual sunny outdoor space, and a classier indoor area but both have same menu. Food is good quality and nicely presented, coffee is good. Outdoors has a nice outlook on busy .Church St.

Well it was a disappointment, over priced for very little food! I had the crab & fish croquettes which were tasty but small, they came with a so called witlof waldorf salad, but if you count 2 small pieces of witlof and a load of walnuts a salad, chef needs to look at a cookbook, and there was only about...

Great food, great service, good location, just don't try the orange juice. $7.50 for a glass of orange juice? Jesus Christ.

Bad service, bad coffee and could not even get an order for 3 coffees correct. Go elsewhere for your next coffee.

Food & beverages are soooo... over priced. Some staff are rude as they just want you to hurry up & get out. So a terrible feeling of just being watched as you have a coffee.

Look, if you're 'somebody,' you'll probably have a nice enough meal with reasonable service at The Pantry. If, however, customers aren't adequately famous in Brighton, adequately dressed in the latest fashion or an adequately regular client, I'd recommend one keeps walking. Having seen this business from multiple perspectives I don't believe their clients are treated equally. As for the food,... More
