Found this place while exploring Brighton and stopped for tea and cake. Cake slices are amazing, service was brilliant and price was very reasonable. If exploring the lanes stop here for refreshment and avoid the big chains. Would definitely visit again.

Had a lovely eggs benedict here one morning and was pleasantly surprised to find out if you order a hot drink you get everything half price. Very quaint little tea room, a bit squeezed in but it sort of adds to the charm I suppose....More

Recently awarded the accolade of "Best Tea & Cakes in Brighton" (Brighton Source Magazine), Blackbird Tea Rooms with its quintessentially English traditional style, has become the favourite retreat of lovers of good old fashioned quality and service. In addition to our traditional tea and cakes we also have a wide selection great breakfast and lunch dishes (see website for menu). We are very busy all day both Saturday & Sunday and therefore are unable to take reservations for the weekends (sorry).
