Steinbeck & Shaw | New Bar

Steinbeck & Shaw | New Bar

Deltic Group bring Steinbeck & Shaw to Brighton Steinbeck & Shaw is a brand new bar to Brighton’s notorious West Street. West Street?! I can hear you thinking, but do bear with me. Opening within the Tardis-like building that houses Pryzm and Odeon (I honestly can never get […]

Curry Leaf Cafe

Curry Leaf Cafe

The majority of my friends and family will know that I grew up an incredibly fussy eater. The chicken nuggets kind of kid, that was me. But as I entered my mid-teens, I realised how much I was missing out. I was quite lucky then, when my […]

Mojo independent coffee | Lunch review

Mojo independent coffee | Lunch review

An independent coffee house on Queens Road, Brighton It’s been a while since I ventured out to review a coffee shop. Generally, now that I work out of town I tend to spend free time at my favourites – when time is short, it just ain’t […]

V and H Cafe | Breakfast Review

V and H Cafe | Breakfast Review

V and H has long been a local favourite. After enjoying solid reviews over the last couple of years, they’ve earned a stellar reputation as a top spot for breakfast in Brighton. Although a little way out from us, I’d been getting a little itchy to […]

Three Stack | Pancakes at The Square

Three Stack | Pancakes at The Square

If you don’t know already, I really like pancakes. They’re generally my go-to for breakfasts and brunches (and sometimes even early dinners) out. I’d had my eye on Three Stack for a little while, having first found them on Instagram, wondering when I’d get a […]

Mac Mondays | The Little Blue Smokehouse at Seven Stars

Mac Mondays | The Little Blue Smokehouse at Seven Stars

I only really discovered mac and cheese a couple of years ago. Since then it’s become a bit of an obsession, and something I definitely can’t resist when perusing a menu. What maniac can say no to a steaming bowl of pasta absolutely smothered in multiple cheeses? A crunchy breadcrumb topping? Maybe […]

The Third Place 1st Birthday Giveaway!

The Third Place 1st Birthday Giveaway!

The Third Place turns one! If you follow me across social media, you may have seen that I recently celebrated my blog’s first birthday! I can’t quite believe it’s been a whole year since I threw all caution to the wind and started The Third […]

Amsterdam: Four days of food

Amsterdam: Four days of food

A few weeks ago, I went to Amsterdam for a long weekend. Having already been before, we took this trip as an opportunity to relax a little, rather than traipsing to and from tourist attractions. Although we did visit a cat museum, which was every […]

Fancy a free drink at Franco Manca this weekend?

Fancy a free drink at Franco Manca this weekend?

Brightonians rejoice, for there is finally a restaurant worth visiting at Brighton Marina! I’ve long had an issue with the restaurant quality down at the marina. Of course, most of your Italian chains are good for a consistent and tasty (if not slightly inauthentic) meal, […]

Coffefix

Coffefix

Yes, that controversial new coffee shop in Brighton. As much as it pains me to write the word Coffe, I felt a little investigation was needed. As someone who has worked in the coffee industry, I’m naturally very dubious of brands claiming to produce “barista style” […]

Win 2 tickets to the Brighton Foodies Festival!

Win 2 tickets to the Brighton Foodies Festival!

This giveaway has now ended. Get your stretchy pants at the ready, the Foodies Festival is coming back to Brighton! The UK’s biggest celebration of food, drink and wellbeing is kicking off at Hove Lawns this May Bank Holiday. I’m super thrilled to be heading over for […]

London Coffee Festival 2017

London Coffee Festival 2017

A whole festival for coffee you say!? Yes, such a thing does exist and it is right up my street! Organised as part of UK Coffee Week (which is happening right now FYI), the event showcases the best coffee roasters and shops, food and drink […]

Hash House | A Troll’s Pantry Venture

Hash House | A Troll’s Pantry Venture

If you go to one place for lunch in Brighton this week/end, go to Hash House. No, I’m not trying to push anything dodgy, this is a new venture from Brighton’s The Troll’s Pantry. And it’s just brilliant. Located next to Trollburger within the Trafalgar Street […]

Rust Roasts | Sunday Lunch at Cafe Rust

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. […]

Afternoon Tea at The Salt Room

Afternoon Tea at The Salt Room

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding The Salt Room recently. Not only has the acclaimed seafood restaurant just celebrated its second birthday and been named in the Sunday Times Top 100, they also recently launched a rather unique Afternoon Tea experience. Yes you know, the […]

Doughbo

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 […]

Brewed

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 […]

Edendum | A Tasting Evening

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, […]

Three nights in Copenhagen: Day Four

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 […]

Three nights in Copenhagen: Day Three

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 […]

Three nights in Copenhagen: Day Two

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 […]

Three nights in Copenhagen: Day One

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 […]

Rosina Makes | Vegan and gluten free bakes

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 […]

Trading Post Coffee Roastery

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 […]

Cafe Chilli | Thai food in Brighton and Hove

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 […]

Dizzy Gull at Brighton Beer Dispensary

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 […]

Sweet Potato Taco Boats

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! […]

Bus Stop

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 […]

Edendum

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 […]

Looking back at my first year of blogging

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 […]
