Such a nice place to find. Had breakfast here and it was just lovely. Perfect start to a busy day exploring. Would certainly visit again if in Brighten again for sure. Cute decor and lovely waitresses.

The service is lovely and the food delicious. I really liked my choice (scones with cream and jam). My friend ordered eggs benedict and it was also good. I definitely recommend this place. The only bad point is the fact that the tables are very...More

Recently awarded the accolade of "Best Tea & Cakes in Brighton" (Brighton Source Magazine), Blackbird Tea Rooms with its quintessentially English traditional style, has become the favourite retreat of lovers of good old fashioned quality and service. In addition to our traditional tea and cakes we also have a wide selection great breakfast and lunch dishes (see website for menu). We are very busy all day both Saturday & Sunday and therefore are unable to take reservations for the weekends (sorry).
