Description: Iydea is a small and very busy express vegetarian canteen right in the heart of Brighton's North Laine area. All the food is freshly made and is on display so you can choose only what you want to go on your plate or to take away. There is an extensive breakfast menu from 9:30 every morning which changes to the lunch menu at 11:30 (12:00 Sundays). Iydea does get very busy and cramped so best to avoid peak times if you want a little more space and comfort.

“Wonderful! Veggie Heaven!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a great little restaurant right in the heart of the best bit of Brighton, The North Laines. Every time we go in there's too much choice and everything is delicious. With a big choice of mains, salads and toppings you will never tire of Iydea. Good value too!

“GOOD IDYEA”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Wander past this place on my way to work almost everyday, can't believe i've never gone in! Fresh, healthy (and most importantly) delicious food, i got a takeaway and the box was bursting!!! Had to eat a few peppers before i put it in my bag!! You get a choice of like 5 things all for the same price and they all look scrumptious. The service was perfect, the guy that served me was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable, can't wait to come back!!

“Beautiful veggie food”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Recommended to me by a friend. The food is all on display, all looking very delicious! I went for the enchilada which was apparently their most popular! Had two sides as well! Lovely potatoes with a succulent salad! All for a whopping price of £6/£6.50? Under £7 anyways! Very healthy and tasty! The staff were very friendly too!

“Excellent yet again”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

I came here about a month ago and made a detour to try it again. It was quite busy and had a really good lively atmosphere. The staff have loads of energy and you do not have to wat long queuing before you are served. The menu is a little confusing but once you decide on eat in / take away and small versus large portions you are sorted. We had quiche and 4 side salads. Everything was fresh and tasty. We tried freshly blended juice with ginger and they were great with enough ginger to give it a kick. You cannot go wrong here although you do pay for the quality.
