  •   Oseta is my cafe of choice when needing a morning coffee or hot chocolate in Brighton. Elina and her team also offer delicious, and often unusual snacks and meals when your appetite is slightly larger! Many meals are gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan....but all are...More

  •   We visited on a Friday am in July, the cafe was quiet but the menu looked promising. It’s small but cozy and the staff are welcoming. When the food arrived it was 10/10. Every detail was perfect. My friend had the halloumi scramble with spiced tomato and herbs - this was so good I kept stealing mouthfuls. I had the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and lemon and dill - it was buttery, light, lemony and the salmon was top quality. All of this was on artisanal sourdough toast which would be a reason to come here on its own. And I would definitely come here once or twice a week if I lived in Brighton. Top marks.

  • review rating 5  Absolutely treasure this place and it's people. I go there at least once a day. Even on a busy day they are kind,friendly and helpful. They keep a personal connection with so many of their customers to make it feel like coming to a friendly homely like place. Their coffee is the first coffee I can't go without anymore (got me of the red bull crap) and their food is delicious and makes my mouth water every time I see it. Would recommend it to everyone I know (and I do trust me) and everyone who just wants to try out the place. You won't be dissapointed!!

  • 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!
