Perfect spot right on the beach and always good for a cuppa and a toasted sarnie. An institution on the Brighton/Hove border. Gluten-free bread and cakes available which is a great touch. Great place to meet friends and to watch the world go by and my first stop after an early morning swim.

Excellent location and always a very busy café. Friendliness of staff can vary. Food is average but ok. Nice toasted sandwiches.

This place is situated perfectly on the seafront, on the border between Brighton and Hove. We chose to go here purely because of the ideal spot looking over the sea. However, the food is very average/just another greasy spoons café. We had an egg & sausage sandwich and a latté for under £4 which is very reasonable. In short -... More

We enjoy parking in Hove and walking along the prom into Brighton. This place is at the start of the interesting parts and has somehow got permission to have tables right next to the sea. My wife and I shared a bacon bap and a sausage and egg bap for a late breakfast and both were fine as were our... More

We had the unfortunate experience of visiting this cafe today. We had travelled from London with our 3 children for a day at the beach. We all wanted Fish and Chips. I ordered Cod and Chips for everyone. They turned out to be the most disgusting fish and chips we had ever had. The fish was thin and grey, the... More

I stopped by at this cafe many times over the years and every time it is nice to see on the beach for cafe meal or drink looking at the sea front life going by.

this place is wonderfully placed on the seafront and bang in the centre of brighton meets hove, but has so missed the opportunity of have a fabulous sea front popular café. no special food, nothing to excite, drab exterior , plastic scattered chairs ,and seating area ... so needs a face lift and some pride and love
