Pavilion Gardens Café is an Oasis in the Heart of the City & Cultural Quarter

Like the Royal Pavilion across the Gardens, the café is a unique Brighton institution.


Throughout the last seventy plus years, it has offered refreshment, relaxation and a certain kind of charm to tens of thousands of visitors from around the world. This third generation family business    with its loyal staff has also evolved as a corner-stone of the local North Laine Community and continues attracting a fascinating clientele of local people to its welcoming oasis in the Pavilion Gardens.

In short a popular summer outdoor meeting place and a thriving attraction for residents, business people and visitors to the City.

We provide a wonderful selection of teas and coffees, cold drinks, juices, famous fruit and coconut rock cakes, together with a sumptuous array of other homemade cakes. Throughout the day we have freshly made sandwiches & baguettes, salads, oven-baked potatoes with various fillings and quiche or Spanish omelette and salad.
