We met a friend here, a regular customer. He had praised the cafe so much that we had to meet up with him there! We were not disappointed. Although it was very busy, there was lots of seating and tables were cleared very quickly. Tea, coffee, juice, sandwiches and rock cakes were all excellent. A lovely cafe to pass the time and catch up with friends.

A lively and busy cafe in the grounds of the Brighton Pavilion. The only downside is the constant presence of pigeons who are also keen to nibble at some of their delicious cakes.

This is situated in a pleasant, shady part of Pavilion Gardens. It is always very popular and serves very good coffee. A nice spot to sit and look at the great view of the Pavilion and the tourists and locals enjoying the great outdoors.

The staff are always so nice, visited every day some days twice. Cakes are very nice and the tea is good.

There is no better place in Brighton to sit and watch the world go by. The drinks are very good and served by the best staff. The food is all fresh and home made. I saw a sign saying it had been saved from demolition. I'm so pleased it has. I would be the first to sign a petition if it came up again
