Dumb waiter cafe closes

First published in News

A MUCH-LOVED cafe has closed.

The Dumb Waiter cafe in Sydney Street in Brighton, famed for its Beano-inspired walls, closed this week after being a Brighton landmark for more than a quarter of a century.

Owner Judy Farrell said she now wanted to “disappear into the sunset”.

The Argus understands that a new business has already been lined up to take over the site’s lease.

Sad news, a very relaxed cafe, great fry ups and good view to people watch. Good luck with your future Judy.

That lady should truly get an honour of some sort.This was more than just a cafe,it was like some mythical world where everyone was equal and tea was always 50p.A mixture of social project and art project,as well as a profitable business.Great job,Judy.And you`re still alive !

Special mention for the legendary Hannah,who commanded front-of-house for many years.
