Pavilion Gardens Cafe established in 1941 and family run is in the heart of Brighton between the Theatre Royal and the Royal Pavilion and adjacent to Brighton Museum, The Dome and the Pavilion Theatre.

This is a mainstay of Brighton life, a popular summer outdoor meeting place and a thriving attraction for residents, business people and visitors to the City. You can sit, relax and enjoy the Pavilion Gardens and your surroundings whilst watching the world go by. Obviously it is far more busy and popular when the weather's nice, Brightonians love it.

There is a wide variety of tea, coffee, homemade cakes, freshly made sandwiches, baguettes, salads and baked potatoes on offer. Without doubt the best tea and home-made rock cakes in the heart of the city. These are served by excellent long serving and helpful staff. It is ideal for people with children, the grownups can have their coffee and the children are free to run around and play on the lawn. Even nearby New Road is now partly pedestrianized. There are also clean, well regulated public toilets at the edge of the gardens. Summer Concert Bands play 2-4pm on Sundays June-September with deckchairs available.
