Can't fault anything. Eight of us had a lovely chat over a nice selection of teas and cakes before hitting the town in the evening. Nice ambience and very friendly and attentive staff. They also do gluten and dairy free options.

The cream tea was fantastic, the scones were warm and light and the tea was wonderful. I couldn't fault the food or drink at all. If your looking for a cafe for tea and cake then this is great. I'd been looking forward to visiting Metrodeco for ages. I'd heard such wonderful things about it. Perhaps this is why I... More

Opted for Vanilla Rooibos tea and a scone at an outside table in the afternoon as the sun was shining. I had to stand up and literally ward off attacking seagulls and remain standing sentry until a waitress came out to sort payment from another table. (One lone man with a drink.) I couldn't go inside as although there were... More

We only found this by chance as it was at the end of the road where our accommodation was but it was a good find. Terrific range of teas, tempting display of cakes and reading through the menu pages surely something to suit all tastes. So it you are wandering along the front by Marina Drive divert up the side...

4 hours travelling. Walking in the cold from the train station. Refreshing tea and cake was much appreciated.

Popped in for a cup of tea with my wife to find a packed restaurant enjoying not just culinary pleasure but a cultural experience in chic art deco surroundings. Great variety of teas , soft drinks, fizz and cocktails. and yummy food.

We booked afternoon tea at Metrodeco on a Monday. The booking process was easy and the staff on the phone were very pleasant and polite, which was a good start. Our visit was wonderful. The staff took time to explain how it worked, unlimited tea etc. The food was lovely. They have a quite a range of tea on offer... More

Huge thank you to the Metrodeco team for a fantastic afternoon tea, we visited as a group of 11 for a hen party and were made to feel so welcome even from the moment we made the booking. Having opted for the afternoon tea with prosecco (1 gluten free) we were amazed by the amount of food supplied and it... More

This place was absolutely perfect. I had travelled far, checked into my hotel and then I came here. A cosy chair, afternoon tea and scones and then a good book. I could have stayed for hours. This visit was the highlight of my trips to Brighton. A small, hidden gem. Go visit!
