Description: Iydea is a small and very busy express vegetarian canteen right in the heart of Brighton's North Laine area. All the food is freshly made and is on display so you can choose only what you want to go on your plate or to take away. There is an extensive breakfast menu from 9:30 every morning which changes to the lunch menu at 11:30 (12:00 Sundays). Iydea does get very busy and cramped so best to avoid peak times if you want a little more space and comfort.

“Great veggie food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012 via mobile

Lovely, friendly veggie cafe - everything is fresh, choose main dishes from the counter, add a couple of lovely salads or sides, sprinkle some seeds or salsa, then eat to your heart's content as you sit in the window and watch the world go by. Classic veggie cafe, with beautifully cooked food.

This was our second visit to Iydea and it's still great, tasty food, friendly staff, great atmosphere and fantastic prices. The best veggie restaurant my daughter and I can find so far. Well done Iydea.

“A gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

What a delight Iydea is. Terrific veggie/ vegan food, a wide choice, good sized portions and excellent value. It's deservedly busy at peak times, so you may expect to queue for a bit and wait for a table if you're eating in, but it's worth it.

I've been here today and the food was really really good! 5/8 £ per person. The veggie lasagna was really good and the atmosphere is friendly!

“Delicious breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

Had a wonderful breakfast here while in Brighton with my fiance. There is seating outside which is great in the nice weather because it is in a really cool location with a great vibe! Healthy, delicious, and fresh options are available. Give it a try!
