Doesn't open until 9.30am, should be 8 or 8.30. Attitude of staff is appalling and hot drinks are low quality. Needs new management and better staff, better drinks choice, better prices. It's very overpriced. We won't be back and we used to go several times a week . It's been going downhill for some time and is now right at... More

Visited Hove Park and decided to try the cafe and we were not disappointed. Yes it was busy but the queue moved quickly and the staff were very friendly. The sandwiches were delicious and the cakes and coffee yummy. We will definitely return.

At last people that know how to serve good fresh food & quality coffee. A lovely little haven after a walk round the park. Opens at 9.30am & 10am weekends with really happy helpful staff.

This is almost a hidden gem in the middle of Hove Park. Were it not for the sign posts around the park perimeter you might miss it and that would be a shame. This is not just a tea/coffee café - it has an excellent range of cooked meals ans snacks and some amazing cakes and biscuits. For those that... More

What a shame, lovely cottage style building in the beautiful Hove Park. However, step inside and be greeted with dark, drab surroundings and indifferent staff. We stopped on a Spring Sunday afternoon for tea and cake, nice enough, but no thought or care. Ridiculous queue, yet not busy at all, complete disorganisation and lack of acknowledgement from miserable looking staff.... More

We've been coming here for a few weeks as it is close to our allotment and to Pets at Home so a half way house when we want to grab a lunch after gardening, some pet supplies and to excercise the dog. And it is popular with other dog walkers. And plenty of children walkers too. The coffee isn't bad... More

Decided to pop in when walking the dog. Thought it looked nice. Service is awful unless you are regular then you get hello etc. If not, a grunt is merely given. Coffee not good and overpriced too. Never tried the food. Only give it one star because i can't give any less.
