Diva is a real locals cafe presided over by the ultra friendly Bengu. The coffee is excellent as is the food which is all freshly prepared. The Cypriot breakfast and the Johnny Boy wrap are especially worth trying.

Seventeen of us met in a unique, private basement room at Diva Cafe in Brighton. Created for use as a mini cinema (Picol-Odeon) with lush red drapes and retro cinema paraphernalia, it was a wonderful, cosy, womb like space for our event, and the lovely food was a terrific bonus. Stephanie explained how she and Pat Dungey formulated the anthology and then read some examples from both of their work. We also heard from Elaine Battersby and, as Anny Knight was unable to be with us, Alison Child read a few of Anny's poems. Afterwards there was a general discussion and a rush to purchase copies of the book, and to order more tea and cakes. So many thanks to all at Diva for such a warm welcome and for creating a memorable experience.

Me and my partner visited while on a overnight break. The decor was great and the owner was very friendly and gave such a personal service. The Coffee was to die for and the best I’ve had in awhile, I drink a lot of coffee!
If u are in the area I would recommend popping in.

This extremely homely cafe has become a regular haunt for me.
The coffee in my opinion is the best in Brighton. I drink America (double shot)
with a splash of cold milk.
Today I had to eat her Rnglish Ploughmans.
Very much the owners style.
Delicious and plentiful with several extras to spice up the cheese.
This place is very friendly and any one who wants to, always has people to talk with.
Many are daily regulars.
Well worth trying - you will get hooked
All is presided over by the motherly figure of Bengu, the Cypriot owner
