Iydea is a small and very busy express vegetarian canteen right in the heart of Brighton's North Laine area. All the food is freshly made and is on display so you can choose only what you want to go on your plate or to take away. There is an extensive breakfast menu from 9:30 every morning which changes to the lunch menu at 11:30 (12:00 Sundays). Iydea does get very busy and cramped so best to avoid peak times if you want a little more space and comfort.

Easy and relaxing!

So lovely to go to a vegetarian restaurant--you can eat everything!! Lots of choice, hot or cold meals with hot and cold sides. Staff were very helpful as my husband has to have gluten free--he was looked after!!

The vege lasagne is most definitely the best I have had and if I can persuade them to give me the recipe I'd be a very happy bunny! Meal came with a choice of 2 sides and 2 toppings making a very satisfying plate full. I even have to comment on the cappuccino which was excellent............ making me wonder how... More

We have been to Iydea before, and I was really excited to go again this week. The food always looks gorgeous - plenty of choices, lots of lovely healthy salads to choose from and toppings as well. We also had some freshly made juices and these were delicious as well. I love the variety of food available and would go... More

We have walked in just to see what's available, but could not leave, as it all looked so yummy. We decided to have a quick pit stop to try some of the dishes and left inspired to cook some of them at home!
