The quality of this food was way above the average lunch cafe- each dish was original, innovative and delicious- better than a restaurant. Would recommend the sausages and pumpkin tagine. The small meals and larger meals were reasonably priced. Good cocktail bar also.

Every time I've been the food has been delicious. The helpings aren't huge but I don't mind that at all. So friendly and a good relaxed atmosphere.

Went here for breakfast. I had 'the works', which was obviously good quality food and it was extremely well cooked. My wife had scrambled eggs and bacon, which was equally as good. Couple this with great coffee and friendly staff, this was a good way to start a day of shopping.

I went here with my wife during a weekend away in Brighton. We fancied a break from the chain restaurants and this was a great one. We chose a selection of the "mini plates" for lunch with a bit of booze. The food was all fantastically prepared and very tasty. We had a gin cocktail which was also very good.... More

Friendly little place in the heart of the Brighton Lanes. I was lucky to get the last table. Everybody's lunches looked tempting and there's a thoughtful selection of large and small dishes available. All very reasonably priced - £7.90 for my brilliant pork and beans and an excellent cappuccino. Everything was beautifully presented. A carafe of water arrived before I'd... More

Stopped off at The Manor for a coffee on a day trip to Brighton. The weather was good so we sat outside and watched people pass by. The young lady who took our order was friendly and recommended the coffee and walnut cake. A good recommendation. The coffee was great and served hot. Why not a five star review? Only... More
