    review rating 5  The most lovely little independent hidden cafe in Brighton. Happy, chatty, helpful staff, and delicious home-cooking! Tasty slices of frittata, lasagne and bakes available for lunch, and their breakfast was the right serving size and yummy flavours! I have lived in Brighton my entire life and I would always recommend!

    review rating 5  True Italian sweets like cannoli and home made, healthy meals. Whatโ€™s not to like? I had a lovely vegetable moussaka and my husband had gnocchi. Both meals were very tasty. Friendly staff made me a cinnamon tea upon request.

    thumb Catherine Gommans

    review rating 5  This is a lovely little cafe for a coffee or lunch - they also do cooked breakfasts, but I'm never there early enough! The staff are always friendly and cheerful. They do sandwiches, coffee (milk alternatives available) and soft drinks, and more substantial meals - for around ยฃ7 you can get a hot main like lasagne, served with a plate full of amazing and delicious salad. There are also good vegetarian options and cakes as well. It's quite small and cosy, with a few tables plus a coffee bar that looks out the window, ideal for people watching.
