TGI Fridays

LOST IN THE LANES | Nile St, Brighton

LOST IN THE LANES | Nile St, Brighton

After two and a half years, I still manage to take a wrong turn and get lost in Brighton’s twisting Lanes. Of course there are worse places to wander into, but I’ll often find myself passing through to get somewhere else. So I was pleased to […]

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 […]

Three Stack | Pancakes at The Square

Three Stack | Pancakes at The Square

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.

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” […]

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. […]
