Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We found this amazing cafe whilst dropping our son off at uni. The food was absolutely delicious. It’s run by a lovely family who went out of their way to make dishes just how we like them! Mine wasn’t even on the menu but nothing...was too much trouble! We will definitely be back 😃More

Great place with really friendly people. One minor irritation though I was sitting outside with friends last summer and got in to Small argument with a guy with a dog who lives above the cafe. His dog ,a black and white sheepdog type, is quite...snappy. It caused a problem with my table .Words were exchanged and we were bombarded with lots of verbal abuse. Been back a few times ,he always seems to be floating around with his dog or another woman,I have seen him away from the place and they shout across the street. Can be intimidating. I think they are drinkers! Otherwise excellent.More

This is a lovely little cafe, with a free book exchange. Our breakfasts were delicious, reasonably priced and served with a smile. We'll be back when we visit our son who lives just round the corner.

Lovely cafe with nice informal feel. Very clean with good choice of breakfasts and lunches. Perfect for a quick stop off to grab a bite to eat. Daily newspapers there to read and book swap system. Only other comment is the quality of sausages need...to be improved as the current ones are poor - this however is not a deal breaker unless you're a sausage connoisseur.More

This is a great little family run cafe. Always nice & clean. Serves a wide range of foods, both healthy & the best fry up. It's nicely run by husband & wife who are both lovely & polite. My husband has even taken our own...plates to bring me a fry up Home when I've been poorly. I fully recommend eating here. It's a shame it's so fare out in bevendean as I'm sure they wld be very busy if not hidden away.More

Although a small place if you go at the right time, it is a lovely homely cafe that does fantastic and fairly cheap food, with the added bonus of great, friendly staff.

I love the Lecca Cafe! It's like a little jewel in the area. Andrea is very friendly and welcoming and will always get whatever you fancy. The food is well-prepared and tasty and you can get a good sized meal or snack. There's also a...little book swap library which is nice to browse. I like coming here for breakfast or lunch or to treat myself to some tea and cake!More

Go regularly for lunch and it has the best Ham, Egg and Chips in Brighton! Also does a good breakfast. Has a daily special and I love the CurryWurst a German special of Bratwurst with a curry ketchup sauce. Trust me it is brilliant!
