Walking from the station, we passed the beautiful display of meringues and macaroons. We went back for tea service. Decadent and lovely. Perfect.

We were on a long weekend in Brighton, I noticed the meringues on the walk from the station and made sure to come back. Delicious cakes and meringues and a lovely atmosphere. The only place cafe I've visited in a long time to offer tap water when we said no to tea & coffee!

There are a few tables and the menu is bigger than you'd expect. Their speciality, I guess, is the macarons but they also... More

In particular, the macarons and cakes are fantastic (and genuinely taste French)! Overall it was reasonable value - not a place to go for a... More

OMG the Salt caramel and the vanilla macaroons are perfect... The take away box is also cute and the macaroons still taste nice after being in the fridge for a few days...
