good but very over priced

The food is good but incredibly expensive for a little local park café. The staff can be VERY surly and not at all friendly. It's ok for a tea or coffee. Prices for those are pretty average. Excellent brekkie e.g. scrambled eggs. , but make sure you've got plenty cash on you. Nice cakes too.

After 5 milk drinks (coffee and milkshakes) the whole family vometing violently. Managed a call to the very hairy manager with dredlocks to tell him and suggest milk be changed, he accused me of lying and hung up. Eat and drink at your peril!

...though a bit expensive for a cafe. The food is of good quality and all responsibly sourced however. Also their loyalty card scheme is quite stingy; 1 stamp per purchase, so even if you buy 4 drinks you only get 1 stamp.

We had a great morning in the beautiful park and were going to only have a drink, but got tempted by the quiche. Really tasty and the staff were very helpful and friendly, a definite thumbs up for a very good excuse for a morning in the park.

I visit this wonderful little cafe most Saturday mornings after running parkrun which is held in the park. Despite there being 450+ people running there as well as numerous spectators and other park users all wanting coffee the friendly staff are very efficient and get everyone served quickly. I've not had a full meal here but they do have an... More

Was awful, milk in my milkshake was out of date and over priced. Chips were cold and tasted horrid, ketchup bottle at the top was dirty, the person I ordered my food from was moody and unfriendly and got my order wrong

Food is okay - but the service is chaotic. Considering how long it's been running, you'd expect them to know what they're doing. Tight fisted 'loyalty' scheme on the hot drinks too...One stamp per person paying, rather than how many coffees you buy. :-/

Sometimes it’s nice to sit at a cafe in the sun when you visit the park with the children and one such place you can do this is Hove Park Cafe. Set in the middle of Hove Park, East Sussex. The Hove Park Cafe is an old cottage style building which is surrounded by small metal fences. It also has... More
