'Quirky'

Been there twice (2nd time today) and can confirm it's a good option for coffee in the Lanes. Strange decoration, but quite fun. The boy at the till today was not in his best mood, but at least he wasn't rude, so I will definitely come back. Very good macchiato.

Marwoods is Brighton, if Brighton had all the cute & quirky sucked out of it. The best thing it has going for it is it's pretentious "I'm an art student, look at me! Ask me what it means!" decor (and this is coming from an art student, just fyi). Apparently this place used to be great, it's hard to imagine... More

This is one of the quirkiest, most interesting and character rich coffee shops I've ever visited. With old Mac computers as chairs to some pretty unique art, it's a great place to just sit and look around. Unfortunately, it's still a coffee shop, and my expensive coffee wasn't that good. For the price, and the effort that went into the... More

If you get the Marwood reference you will love this coffee house. If like us you are repulsed by the usual corporate coffee chains and have a sense of humour you will enjoy a visit here. We love it, a place to relax, sup tea and eat fine cake - try the lemon & poppy seed cake!

Quirky little cafe shop. Lovely coffee and lovely drinks with cakes and sandwiches for snacks. Always with a good book having coffee in the cafe. Worth the visit.

Good coffee and amazing atmosphere. Not a place for people looking for a "forced-to-be" nice cutmer service but a place where the staff is allowed to have a bad day and to show it, as real human beings. Only weak point in my opinion: a place like that should be slighty cheaper.

Expensive latte served lukewarm in what appeared to be a large thimble. As a fading sign on the wall indicates this cafe was at some point a record shop. It now appears to be a hangout for people who pretend to collect records, the sanctimonious right-on Brighton set. The ironic charity shop "art" hung against the deliberately garish wallpaper is...

I wanted to like the place, it's appears artistic, independent, and plays good music. BUT like art environments can be, it suffers from a stroppy punk attitude that reflects as churlishly rude customer service. No forced smiles in here, an attitude I agree with, however when the coffee lets you down on quality with an expensive unfrothy £2.80 cappuccino, this... More

Great for an excellent coffee and cake. Soup good too, often pop in after a shopping trip or wander around the lanes. A hidden gem

Unfortunately this coffee shop gets a thumbs down from me. If you want a cosy atmosphere and somewhere to chat and catch up then don't come here. The music is always too loud and one has to shout above the music to be heard. Having asked the fella who served me if he could turn the music down a little... More
