I would not generally choose to go here for breakfast. The food quality is basic- unappealing tinned plum tomatoes and I always avoid the dodgy veggie-burgers.... But, this establishment is not about the quality of food, it is about being just right after a night...More

The diner is tucked away out of the main busy part of Brighton. Food is acceptable but the main point of this diner is that its open 24/7 which is very handy.

My friends and I ordered a pizza from here after we got back late from our holiday. At first, we were compelled by the selection they had to offer which even included many varieties of tobacco products. However, after waiting 10 minutes after the promised...More

My wife and I were taken here by a friend, but I've no idea why. Not being up to their "Gutbuster" breakfast we went for something more modest, but it wasn't good. Why serve fried bread and bread smeared in margarine? Also, the coffee appeared...More

I've been going to the Market Diner, on and off, since 1988 when the place was bustling with clubbers and staff from the old municipal market (this has now been knocked down) it has always been the same, a massive fry-up and mug of tea...More

This place prides itself on it's famous Gutbuster meal which is a giant full English breakfast - and is great! But, there are also other options on the menu which are just as good. This place is well established and I have been going here...More

I've come in here a few times a bit pissed after a night out. Food hits the absolute spot every time. Pretty great value for money also.

Not many places can lay claim to being 'the original home of the Gut Buster' - but then, they don't all come like Market Diner in Brighton. The all-night cafe is a local institution - a favourite among clubbers and lorry-drivers alike, and serves up tummy teasers like steak, eggs, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, peas and chips, along with the legendary Gut Buster: eggs, bacon, mushrooms, burger, black pudding, fried toast, beans, chips and tomatoes. If you've got an appetite that's not easily sated, and you're a fan of the fried breakfast - this is a must-visit for you.
