Best fry up I've had in Brighton, really quality meat and everything is really fresh. Everything you want in a classic English breakfast!

Thanks for your great review. The cafe is very busy (& leaky) at the moment so the staff are working really hard. It's really encouraging for us when we get a good review.

We regularly visit seven bees for a leisurely sunday brunch. Its a small quaint operation, with one man working in a small kitchen, so don't expect an express bite. That said, it's always worth the wait, and gives you time to enjoy the conversation. A...More

Thanks very much for your review. The cafe is closing at Christmas because the new landlord is knocking the building down, so it's great to see people are still enjoying our food. We have a community cafe in St George's church in Kemp Town so...More

Wow thank you! That is all we hope for with our breakfasts. We buy good quality ingredients & try to serve them up well at keen prices. It's great when people let us, and the wider world, know when we've got it right.

Its not a smart place - its not dirty but its down-to-earth, even scruffy. Its not open every day. Its likely you will need to wait a while for your breakfast to be cooked. Then when the breakfast arrives in front of you - its...More

I'm sorry to hear you had to wait so long for your breakfast. Sounds like it was a busy day, but you should have been kept informed of the delay. Good to hear your breakfast was up to scratch when it arrived.
