Lovely service, gorgeous food, would definitely eat here again. The staff are really friendly and attentive. Particularly recommend the French onion soup. The macarons are sublime, I took some home with me.

I have purchased patisserie from the shop before,which were excellent. The breakfast was rather disappointing. Expensive and the food not very hot, both the drinks and the food. The staff were over stretched and customer service was poor.

This little cafe near Brighton station is a gem, serving amazing cakes, patisserie, and pastries. Nice decor, peaceful (no annoying loud music blaring), friendly staff and good service. Children and dogs are welcome. And they make the best almond croissants in Brighton.

This is a very nice cafe with an old fashioned feel that ensures you are looked after. They also have a wide range of cakes and pastries to compliment their excellent coffee. Everything is very well presented and the service is refreshing.

Pastries are awesome. Also try Pistachio macaroons. Few more are good too. Avoid dark color macaroons. They are not that good. I love the pastries/ cakes from this shop. I think that's my life's best pastry.
