Great selection of dishes on the menu, if you fancy two dishes choose one as a starter, no problem. Food was flavourful & delicious even for the palate of a non-vegan/vegetarian. Staff were attentive & friendly & will explain anything you don't know about... great for a non-vegan. Loved it.

Lovely place. Service was excellent. Little bit compact but they’ve made the best use of the space. We’ll be going back in the future.

Always lovely food here although disappointed that the burger appeared to be a bought-in patty rather than homemade. The buffalo cauliflower wings were fabulous. Waiter didn’t seem to know the menu & wasn’t terribly observant - he put main course down but didn’t clear away the starter or take away the wine glasses when we’d all ordered other drinks. Perhaps he was new to the job. Wouldn’t really put me off coming back as it’s the only vegan restaurant that’s not too far away!

Having eaten the vegan burger for lunch a couple of weeks before I wanted my husband (a self confessed carnivore) to give it a try. He somewhat reluctantly agreed to have dinner at Crazy Bean, and had to admit that the burger was absolutely delicious! He also had the brownie for dessert and said that was also amazing. Throughly recommend this amazing little vegan cafe - gorgeous food and a really relaxed atmosphere. We will be back again soon!

When a friend had questions about the vegan burger (not usually a fan) the chef not only answered them but offered a little sample to try and convert her! We thought this was a very generous gesture, and if anyone has carnivore friends or just likes a good burger I think they'd be very impressed with the authentic taste and texture.
The menu had options for gluten-free, brunch or main meals. The salads with the food were delicious and the whole meal was satisfying and great value.
The raw cakes were excellent.

I use to love this place but was really disappointed with our visit. The menu use to be exciting food that, as a vegan, you missed out on. Now it felt like it was the usual vegan burger, pasta and roast offer that you can get a most chain pubs these days. The burgers we had were nothing special. I was also really disappointed with the service staff’s allergy knowledge albeit we eventually got the full information. I would say that the cakes are still fantastic.

Very stylish cafe interior ,fairly small but had a nice cosy feel. The food was great especially the burger if your looking for something resembling meat than that’s it! Large variety of raw cakes for dessert too and a decent price point

The food for this pre-Mother's day dinner for our family of four was quite superb: tasty and original dishes beautifully presented. The chef there is so imaginative. None of us are totally vegetarian, let alone vegan, but we were all delighted with our meals. The service was charming, well informed and friendly, but a little haphazard, with long waits and wrong meals presented. But we took those quirks in good humour and they would not in any way stop us from coming again. This place is a real find, it's such a pity that it only opens three and a half days a week.

Great to have a local vegan restaurant. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, food was good but not would be good to have a child friendly menu as well.

We visited when the brighton.vegfest.co.uk was on - which may explain why it was so empty. We had an excellent meal with great service and we all agreed to try it again soon.

We had the roast dinner.
Portion size was quite small and the seitan didn’t go well with the meal.
Veggies were cooked perfectly but just wasn’t enough to fill us up.

The food and the service was brilliant! There was a great selection on the menu and the food was really delicious. The cauliflower wings were one of the best things I think I have ever eaten and I can't recommend them enough. We will definitely be returning and would recommend the Crazy Bean Café to everyone.

Eaten at Crazy Bean several times and they have always impressed. Every time I have visited the quality of the food has far surpassed my expectations.

A valentines fixed menu was superb, and every table had a long stem red rose to take home.

Friendly staff and background music, loud enough to hear but quiet enough to converse.

I’m definitely not a vegan but love this place more than any other restaurant I have visited.

Came for Valentine's night to find a special set menu of six courses. And it really was special! I am not even vegetarian, let alone Vegan and was amazed how delicious each course was. How they can make that old school meals horror of beetroot into a tangy and tasty appetizer, and artichokes into a yummy soup, I fail to understand. And the delights continued throughout the six light and tasty courses.
A revelation! Especially to this lifelong carnivore.
OK it was not cheap at £35 per head, but for a special occasion with six courses, I think that was well justified. We will return on an ordinary evening to see if this extremely high standard is maintained.

Good experience but food wasn't as delicious as some similar-style vegan restaurants I've been to. For example, the cauliflower "wings" were amazing but the accompaniments of salad (just looked like bagged leaves) and lime coleslaw (didn't taste even vaguely lime-y) were a bit lack lustre. Fantastic value and ambience though!

I love this place! Third time eating here and I am never disappointed. The cauli wings are the best and the cheeseburger was absolutely gorgeous. All vegan, of course! So happy this place exists. The staff could smile and be a bit more upbeat, but that’s the only thing that is less than perfect.
