stopped for milkshakes, ham and cheese toast and a fantastic chicken salad. Really recommend this friendly little cafe. Really fresh and tasty salad with lots of Mediterranean flavours. YUM!

I only spent 4 days in Brighton in April but I returned to this place every single morning. The latte is absolutely fabulous and the staff is extremely nice and caring. I can only recommend it.

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.
