About Metrodeco

Billing itself as ‘a storm in a vintage teacup’, Brighton’s Metrodeco is a quirky tea room which is inspired by the 1930s.

If you’re paying a visit, you can expect to find mismatched vintage interiors which add to Metrodeco’s overall charm – think old-fashioned chandeliers, leopard print furniture and art deco murals painted on the walls. There are also a few street side tables which you can make the most of on warmer days.

Metrodeco is open every day of the week and is best known for its afternoon tea. Following the traditional format, your afternoon tea will begin with finger sandwiches with fillings such as cream cheese and cucumber, and other savouries including a sage and honey mustard sausage roll.

Next up, you can slather plenty of jam and cream on a helping of freshly baked scones, before moving on to the sweet treats – think a fruit tart, a pistachio sponge and brownie bites which are baked on site.

Your afternoon tea will be enjoyed alongside an array of teas including black, green, white and infusion varieties, while there are several ways to customise the offering too. A vegan version of the afternoon tea is available, and there is also the option to add Prosecco or G&Ts to proceedings.

Aside from its afternoon tea, Metrodeco is also open for breakfast, when it serves a menu of homemade crumpets completed by traditional and contemporary toppings. You can keep it simple with just butter or chocolate and strawberries, or you can go down the unconventional route and try out smoked salmon and matcha crème fraiche or homemade baked beans.

There are also soups, sandwiches and other savouries available, while those looking to get their fix of sweetness can pick from the cakes and scones counter. Don’t worry if you forget to wear your vintage outfit either, as Metrodeco has a fun vintage clothes rail which you can pick outfits from to wear while you have your tea and cake.
