It’s no secret that Brighton has an abundance of independent coffee houses, shops and cafes. Before you go wandering the lanes to find *the one*, here’s a list of our favourites:
Looking for a spot away from the hustle and bustle of the main city? Then Stoney Point is the one for you. Born out of a passion to open an independent coffee shop, Stoney Point prides itself in serving exceptional coffee. And we can certainly vouch for that. Their name plays on the owner's love of music and originates from an old folk tune from the Appalachian Mountains. They’re also a fantastic stop for brunch or lunch. All of their cakes, jams and chutneys are homemade, and what they don’t make themselves, they supply from Brighton’s very best artisan bakeries and delis.
After four successful years as the neighbourhood coffee shop, Tilt generously expanded into Tilt Kitchen - a cafe with a passion for healthy homespun cookery and really cracking coffee. With local art on the walls and a cool, stripped-back aesthetic, Tilt is known as one of the best places in Brighton to get a coffee and a much-loved choice of the locals.
Situated just a short walk from the station down Trafalgar Street, Coffee@33 makes for the perfect pick-me-up before or after travelling. Serving up killer cups of coffee and delicious sweet and savoury treats, it's definitely worth the stop.
Last but certainly not least, Pelicano is a small chain found across Brighton, offering speciality coffee (roasted by themselves) and the very best of Brighton’s sweet treats. Our favourite Pelicano to head to is on Sydney Street in the heart of North Laine with plenty of outdoor seating - the perfect spot for cake, coffee and people watching!
