I had the full English breakfast & my wife had the vegetarian version, which were both good. Flat white coffee also good. Small venue, where you see the food being prepared (they have maximum hygiene rating), We visited on a cold day, but they have a lovely terrace with much more seating, which is a sun trap when weather permits.

Visited this place on a Groupon deal for breakfast with my wife. We both had a lovely full cooked breakfast with tea/latte. Everything was hot, perfectly cooked and plenty of it including perfectly cooked poached eggs which can sometimes be difficult to do. I always think you can tell a good breakfast by the quality of the sausage, which can... More

One of my favourites - tucked away from the madding crowds of North Laine. Serves unpretentious food - great breakfasts, sandwiches, jacket potatoes and salads with care and attention. Great coffee and has a range of newspapers to keep you occupied if waiting for a train etc. Suits vegetarians and vegans and lots of alternatives - go, it will make... More

I decided to drop into this deli for a cup of tea and something to eat whilst waiting for a train. It turns out that they serve a really, really good cheese omelet- light, fluffy and full of flavour. Very enjoyable 30 minute wait for a train on a wet day.

Visited the deli at the weekend and would highly recommend the food. Our group had a mix of porridge, sandwiches, cheese on toast, cakes and coffee. Everything was extremely tasty and we would definitely return on our next visit to Brighton. I love my porridge and was very surprised to hear that they use Aldi oats. They were so good... More

I still love this place for lunch - excellent range of fresh sandwiches, all day breakfasts and salads. Their soups this winter have been fab - my absolute faves are the bean chilli soup and the Butternut Squash and Peanut Butter one - SO GOOD!! When when when can we have them again! Please! thanks so much

In an area crammed with cafes and coffee shops The Laine Deli excels. We had wonderful breakfasts from a well thought out menu, with excellent coffee. The atmosphere was friendly and professional and we also liked the music! The whole thing was great value for money and we can't wait to return. This place really deserves to do well.

Thank Zig_50
