I've been to this place a few times and it's always fantastic. The breakfasts are great, so are the burgers etc. just a great little place for a cup of tea and a slice of cake!

Pros: Friendly staff , Great atmosphere , Nice outside seating
Cons: far away from the centre/ waterfront, A bit small

Small, adorable Loving Hut

Maybe the smallest café I've ever been to :) typical food as in every loving hut, quite good and very friendly staff.

Tasty and affordable

This was the first Loving Hut I visited, so I don't have any comparison to other restaurants of this chain. It is located in a small hut, and the interior is very small, but there are a few tables. It is a counter service, but if you decide to eat in, they bring your order to you when you are sitting. There are breakfast meals, snacks and lunches available, as well as a selection of other vegan stuff such as chocolate bars and other sweets.
I had a vegetable curry and I liked it very much - it was delicious and a really large meal for such a small price. The seitan was perfect!

Pros: Tasty meals, Very affordable
Cons: Very small restaurant

Thank heavens!

This is the only vegan Chinese place that I found in the UK. There's probably something in London but I have ever found one anywhere else.

The food is just right. You can have tofu with any main dish. And I had tofu chocolate cheesecake for dessert.

It really hit the spot and I'll be returning often.

Pros: good Chinese food, affordable, fun location in Park

    Your right! there's a loving hut in London (edgware is the best) that does a fantastic all you can eat Chinese buffet for about £7! If your ever in the area I strongly recommend it.



Love the Loving Hut.

Amazing Vegan food, just love this place over looking the park, and you can sit outside if you want to. The food is to die for and you won't have to as it is all Vegan! A must visit if you are in Brighton.

Pros: Vegan, Very Friendly staff, Over looking the park

Not the best Loving Hut

3 Posted on 07 / 03 / 2013

Having experienced several Loving Huts already we knew that they can vary somewhat. Prague is the best so far. This Brighton one is more of a small diner, with not much choice, and with a weighting toward burger and chips fare. Still, it is relatively cheap and vegan.

Pros: cheap
Cons: lack of choice, fast foolish

Loving Hut Cafe

An excellent small cafe. Lovely food, reasonably priced with friendly staff. Both English and Chinese food. I highly recommend this place.

Pros: Excellent Food, Good Value, Friendly staff
Cons: Limited seating in cold weather.

Pleased to meet you, Loving Hut Brighton!

I was walking around Brighton and decided stop at the Loving Hut Cafe there.

The location is nice. it's in a square/park area. Inspiring.

the place is beautiful, the staff are fast, polite.

there, I order organic juice, with ginger. It was ALL i need for a long walking period in that city. The juice was so tasty and energizing.

Unfortunately I did not have time to stay and try their menu, but you can have an idea on what they sell there if you go the their website. I am sure all the food there taste good. I have visited different Loving Huts in different cities and countries, and they ALL sell tasty, vegan, loving, amazing food.

So please if you go to Brighton, which is a nice city in England, do miss visiting Loving Hut Cafe.

Pros: sell energizing, organic juice, nice location, friendly staff
Cons: no cons, no cons, no cons

Loved it!

We arrived here 15 minutes before closing time and I was really impressed. First impression was a really nice energy for a tiny little cafe. Very clean. The two ladies in there were very friendly and helpful, making a delicious order for us. Really felt like our food was made with love.

There is quite a lot of choice for somewhere so small... and fresh home baked vegan cake too.

I don't live in Brighton, but when I go back, I wouldn't hesitate to go here again.

Pros: 100% vegan, Delicious, super clean

Hutterly fantastic

This place might be small in stature but it's really big on flavour. It's also a little off the beaten track but it's well worth seeking out. We gorged ourselves on a mixture of dumplings, wontons, nuggets, a "not-dog", spring rolls, and other little treats. The food arrived pretty quickly and it was really tasty. The woman who served us - who owns the business with her family - was very friendly too.
And it's very reasonably priced. The two of us stuffed ourselves and had drinks; and it was about £15.
Though the cafe is small there's loads of seating outside if it's a nice day. You can also have takeaway - there's a little park right on the doorstep.
The only problem was that we were so distracted by how good the food was that we forgot to leave a tip. It'll be a pleasure to make up for our rudeness by taking another day trip to Brighton and going back to this lovely Loving Hut.

Pros: tasty, cheap, vegan
Cons: cash only

Loved it!

For a small cafe they offer a lot of choice. Mainly chinese/thai but also vegan hot dogs, burgers etc. Cakes, Tofutti Cuties, for pudding and great coffee.
We had Chunky Satay with tofu - good crunchy fresh veg and tasty sauce - and a platter which had sweet & sour soya balls, won tons, spring rolls and salad. Also tried their carrot cake which was amazing. A lovely rich carrot cake with thick creamy topping.
Reasonable prices: main dishes for about £4.70, cake £2.50.

Pros: All vegan, Price, Speed
Cons: Location

It took about 10minutes to find, but when we finally did find the cafe, it was worth it.
Food here is amazing. This is the first place I've been to who have vegan sweet &sour chicken balls, and they tasted delicious.
There's a decent range of food to choose from; I was stuck for choice so ended up ordering four different things. Each tasted amazing. So good, I didn't want to leave!
The food is not expensively priced, and the staff are extremely friendly. Nice atmosphere in here. All vegans must visit at some point. This has to be the best vegan restaurant I've visited in England so far.

Pros: 100% Vegan, Delicious food, inexpensive
Cons: Partially hidden location

Wonderful place!

I know Loving Hut from the time that I spent in Vienna, Austria. My husband and I were thrilled to see that one has opened here as well. I know the staff as I come in at least 4 times a week and they are always lovely and friendly. The food is great and the store itself is cozy and warm.

Pros: Great food, Very good prices
Cons: limited selection

I love this hut

My son and I often go to the nearby playground, so we got a lovely surprise when Loving Hut opened. It's so nice not to have to check what's vegan.

The food (nearly all oriental) is excellent and good value. The staff are always cheerful and pleased to see you, even at the end of the day.

I cycle past on my way home from work and often stop for a hazelnut latte. In the summer it can be a sun-trap.

It's perfectly situated for all the veggies/vegans living on Muesli Mountain (Hanover, across the road).

My only worry is that it's often very quiet, so it can't be that profitable (...yet!)

Pros: 100% vegan, excellent food, friendly staff
Cons: religious propaganda (albeit discreet)

Little choice-but yummy

For those who know Loving hut from a county like austria, it might be dissapointing,because they have only a few meals. But the few they have are excellent!

Pros: Good fake meat, Tasty food
Cons: small

Loving this cafe!

5 Posted on 08 / 16 / 2010

This is such a great little cafe and wonderful that it's 100% vegan. There is a good variety of food, such as noodles, burgers, rice dishes, full english breakfast, satay skewers, sandwiches, cakes, etc.. I've enjoyed everything i've eaten there, my favourites being the sushi, crispy clouds and incredible cheesecake! The staff are always really friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend this place, writing about it makes me want to go eat there!

Pros: great food, friendly staff, good prices

Nice little place

5 Posted on 07 / 23 / 2010

I work just around the corner from this place but because it's been changing owners and names about every 6 months in the past few years I haven't paid any attention to the latest change and assumed it was just another cafe selling meat. Until I found out about it on HappyCow. We were down there the next day eager to check it out. Cosy little place with inside and outside seating. Small, mainly Far Eastern menu with some British favourites thrown in, and really delicious! Especially their dumplings are to die for! And their prices are low as well. They sell vegan chocolate bars I could only find on the internet before, plus pre-made sandwiches, muffins and cakes. They have a small freezer with mostly ice-cream in it. Everything on the menu is also available for takeaway. There are vegan leaflets and literature available to take away or read while you're waiting. Other than this (and the TV) nothing indicates that this place is vegan and a chat with the owners revealed that this is on purpose. They don't want to scare away the majority of the public so they keep quiet about it and hope they will win them over with their food. We've been down there a few times every week since. A visit is highly recommended!

Pros: Cheap, Delicious food, Friendly staff

This is a tiny vegan place right near St. Peter's church, and has tables to sit outside in the sunshine. They have vegan television on, which at first was a bit strange and quirky, but it the place still won my heart. It's a small menu to choose from-which is good, because everything sounded so good I still couldn't choose. Had the sweet n sour "pork" with chow mein noodles. Was around 4 quid, and was totally delish!

Pros: cheap, all vegan, tasty
Cons: slightly limited seating
