Delicious Italian coffee and pastries, this place does not disappoint. I love a Cannoli and these folks are doing it right - delicious Sicilian cannolis. Michelle and the team helped me mark the day I should have been getting married in Italy by surprising my...fiancée with breakfast on the beach. Spread the word this should be your coffee shop of choice in Brighton for sure!!More

Simply the closest thing to a real Italian “caffe bar”. One of the only places where actually you can taste a proper Italian coffee. The staff is really professional and so friendly! The gelato is exactly what you expect from an Italian “Gelateria” Simply perfect...for appetizer. Absolutely recommended!More

Best coffee in Brighton, makes me think I’m on the amalfi coast, enjoying a summer holiday. We regularly pop in when passing by for a cappuccino or spremuta di arancia. Last time we had the Ricotta Cake, it was absolutely delicious and I’d recommend it...to anyone. Fresh cakes, perfect coffee - a little bit of Italy in the heart of BrightonMore

I stopped here by chance as killing time before checking into my hotel. The coffee was wonderful, one of the best coffees I've had. The owner was friendly and the selection of cakes etc looked fabulous.

Popped into this little gem last month, with friends for an afternoon treat. When we walked in we were spoilt for choice! Large selection of flavours. I went for the salted caramel. Absolutely Fabulous! My friends picked vanilla which was also delicious. Reasonable price. Shop...was clean and the lady that served us was friendly. If you visit Brighton be sure to pop in here. You won’t be disappointed.More
