Its hard to find really good consistent restaurants in brighton. What can I say lovely service, great food and nice ambience what more can you ask for. And they have a great wine list as well.

Had a lovely lunch here today. The staff were very attentive & friendly on our arrival. I ordered the Chicken Paprika salad that was a delightfully fresh dish featuring quinoa, fetta, onion
& tomato. My husband ordered the Florentine's club sandwich, which was exactly what he was after. The service was exceptionally quick (they were quite busy) and the food and drinks were of an excellent quality. The furnishing are quite comfortable, with outdoor type settings for kerbside and table cloths for inside the cafe. The menu was diverse with breakfast served until 1pm and other meals available from 11.30am. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the dishes {mine $23, husband's $20} and the drinks were very refreshing {try th Calypso Coco, yummo!}. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others and will be back soon ourselves.

Had a staff Christmas function here and was pleasantly surprised with the service. Have been there before with average service but found this time it was excellent. Food selection good and prompt service made it a good evening. Would come back again. Not the cheapest place but worth the money.
