Rust Roasts | Sunday Lunch at Cafe Rust

Cafe Rust is one of those places I always meant to get around to visiting. Tucked in Preston Road, it sits in that strange part of town that actually hosts some of Brighton’s gems – think Señor Buddha, The Joker, Hare & Hounds and Fatto a Mano. Barely a 20 minute walk from my home, I’m kicking…

Doughbo

I wasn’t going to write a post about Doughbo because my photos are so dark. But a phrase popped into my head earlier – “something to write home about” – and I realised I absolutely had to mention them. Doughbo Episode I: In the beginning Created as an answer to bad street food and the…

Brewed

Brewed is a place that I seriously don’t think gets enough credit. Barely a year old, it’s still a relative newcomer to the Brighton coffee and brunch scene. I remember watching them spring up during my final commutes, and feeling thrilled when I realised it was a coffee shop. Alas, I only got to go a few times…

Edendum | A Tasting Evening

You might remember my review of Edendum, a charming (and authentic) Italian in the heart of the Lanes. After a great first visit, I was super excited to be invited back for an evening of tasting. Pizza, prosecco and… more prosecco With Brandon in tow, I arrived to the familiar, warm atmosphere and found the prosecco already flowing. We bumped…

Three nights in Copenhagen: Day Four

As I’m writing this post, I’m sat on a plane with some bloke’s knees in my back. He’s snoring and the girl next to me keeps slapping her hair in my face. Not the way I’m choosing to end my trip to Copenhagen, I’m bringing you a round-up of the fourth and final day. Brunch…

Three nights in Copenhagen: Day Three

Day three in Copenhagen started, as all days should, with pizza. We’d decided to visit Rosenborg Castle in the city centre, and stopped by a bakery to keep us going. Rosenborg Castle A summer home for the Danish monarchy in the 17th century, Rosenborg revealed extravagant rooms and furniture that wouldn’t seem out of place…

Three nights in Copenhagen: Day Two

Our second day in Copenhagen got off to a sunny start. Before we left the apartment. Whilst dry for the first couple of hours we were out, the rest of the day was pretty wet. Did we take an umbrella out that day? We did not. But did that stop us? It did not! Nyhavn…

Three nights in Copenhagen: Day One

I’m writing this post from the squishiest bed in Copenhagen – although maybe don’t fact check me on that. Rather than write one colossal summary post of my trip, I’d like to bring you a roundup of each day that we’re here. Three nights, four days, let’s go. Day One: I won’t bore you with…

Rosina Makes | Vegan and gluten free bakes

Recently, I received a rather sparkly delivery… in the form of six gluten free AND vegan doughnuts from Rosina Makes. “Wait”, I hear you say, “you’re not vegan or gluten free?!”. It’s true, I’m neither, but it doesn’t mean I can’t taste these from a different perspective. Rosina has her recipes taste-tested by family and friends, allergies or none,…

Trading Post Coffee Roastery

Hold up, there’s a new brunch spot in town: Trading Post Coffee Roastery. Up until quite recently, Rickshaw Oriental stood in its place. I can’t say I’d been although from what I’ve read, things didn’t end too well there. Anyway, Trading Post moved in and began setting up quickly, which of course didn’t go unnoticed by…

Cafe Chilli | Thai food in Brighton and Hove

As we entered 2017, I began compiling a list of all the places I had yet to try around Brighton. One restaurant I’d continually heard great things about was Cafe Chilli, so of course it was on there. Well you can imagine my absolute delight when the owner, Seb, contacted me to invite me down for…

Dizzy Gull at Brighton Beer Dispensary

I’ve not had the pleasure of trying many roasts in Brighton yet. Now I’ve acknowledged that, I’m just realising how weird that is. Although it may have something to do with the insane amount of brunch I eat on a Sunday instead, so swings and roundabouts eh? A couple of months back, I’d heard the name…

Sweet Potato Taco Boats

As I’ve said before, I like to try and create meals that are light on carbs or meat free throughout the week. This is mostly to make up for the fact that from Friday through to Saturday, all I do is go out for food! But also helps to keep meal times interesting, as I…

Bus Stop

I don’t often race off to write a review barely hours after eating, but I really need to tell you all about Bus Stop. Have you heard of Brighton’s latest addition? Straight in from Barbados, Bus Stop brings Caribbean home cooking and cocktails to the North Laine. We stopped by for lunch, making sure we…

Edendum

Brighton is known amongst foodies for struggling to provide on the Italian food front. There are plenty of big names and independents around, but rarely any that deliver in authenticity.  Now, I won’t ever claim to be an expert in Italian food, but I know when a restaurant tries to do too much (Italian hamburgers, anyone?). I also like to…

Looking back at my first year of blogging

Well okay, I’ve only been running this blog for 9 months, but that doesn’t sound as good does it? 2016 was a pretty shit year in terms of current events. But on a more personal level, it saw the start of an entirely new side of myself.  I decided to put my love of Instagramming beautiful…

LangeLees

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to see another pig in blanket until next Christmas. So, I’m diving straight back into business as usual with a breakfast visit to LangeLees. LangeLees is rather unremarkable looking from the front, with the air of a greasy spoon. Actually a South African inspired café, they boast…

Burger Brothers

I’m late the the party, I know. If you live in Brighton, you’ll already know about Burger Brothers. Whether you’ve tried them or not, I daresay you know a cult fan or two. But the cult has grown. Now, I’m known amongst my friends for loving a good burger. If you’ve read a lot of…

Café Plenty | Breakfast review

You might remember my review of Cafe Plenty a few months ago, in which I reviewed the place as a fairly new discovery. Throughout my previous visits, I’d only ever tried the fresh food from the counter, but never off the menu. Luckily for me, the lovely guys at Plenty recently invited me down to try…

Nu Posto Lunch Review

Nu Posto opened last summer down the somewhat shady West Street area, with promises of authentic Neapolitan pizza. Finally, it seemed locals had a reason to venture down that end in the middle of the day and not just to get to the beach. First experience I first visited early this year for dinner with Brandon, after hearing some…

Tom’s Food

Last weekend, we took a little trip to Cuckfield in West Sussex to visit Tom’s Food, a café restaurant that I’ve had my eye on since discovering it on Instagram a few months back. Tom’s Instagram is a collection of his foodie creations, supper clubs and life within the cafe (oh, and quite a lot of his…

When Social Media Goes Too Far

Last weekend, I went ice skating with two of my best friends in Canary Wharf to celebrate one of their birthdays. It was… terrifying, for the first 20 or 30 minutes, until we got the hang of it and managed to enjoy ourselves. But that’s not quite what this post is about. For fear of…

Grubbs

I’ve been a little absent lately amongst preparations for starting a new job and leaving another, but I’m back now with promises of being a better blogger and a review all about… GRUBBS. A big part of me thinks you’ll know it well. When I first moved here last year, there was a name that…

Nowhere Man | Pancake Club

I was very recently invited* down to Nowhere Man with Jess to review their Pancake Club and, as  we knew would need the pick me up, we chose to visit the morning after the Brighton Girl Halloween Party. Boy, were we right. Struggling to walk in a straight line and with remnants of last night’s makeup, we…

Black Mocha | Revisit

You might remember that I visited Black Mocha back in June and left a little undecided on my overall verdict. Here’s a little recap of my final thoughts when I visited and blogged a review previously: So far for me, the jury is still kind of out. I’m keen to go back and try more…

The Third Place is 6 Months Old!

6 months ago today, I went for a roast, took a bunch of photos and wrote my first ever blog post for The Third Place. Since then, I’ve found a whole new community of Brighton friends; reviewed coffee shops and restaurants; shared some of my favourite recipes; tried some new products, and even had the…

The Troll’s Pantry

The Troll’s Pantry has been on my burger list basically since we moved to Brighton, and I’m not really sure how we managed to go so long without trying one. I like saving places until the time feels right, and lately I’ve decided that my quest for the best burger in Brighton must go on, as…

Tom Foolery

I stepped out of East Sussex recently and into the West for breakfast at Tom Foolery, Shoreham-by-Sea. Having heard mixed things about the overall experience from friends but seen some delightful Instagram photos, I needed to find out the truth for myself. Set in the High Street overlooking the river Adur, Tom Foolery is an independent…

Smashburger

What is Smashburger? Smashburger has been a hotly anticipated addition to the burger scene in Brighton; one which, unlike other American burger chains such as Five Guys and Shake Shack, many of us have not tasted or perhaps even come across before now. The brand new restaurant has been teasing us all over the last couple…

i gigi Café

I recently stopped by i gigi for a Top Five Most Ingrammable Cafés feature I worked on for Brighton Girl and instantly fell in love with the beautiful aesthetics and serene setting. My first visit was a brief breakfast stop with a flat white and delightful toast basket for one, and I promised myself I…
