As one of the UK’s main tourist spots in both summer and winter, Brighton has a fantastic range of late breakfast and brunch spots to offer. From classic English breakfast cafés to an American-inspired diner, and places introducing new culinary cultures with Cypriot and South African breakfasts – Brighton offers a great variety from which to take your pick. Here is our pick on the best best brunch spots in this vibrant coastal city.
The New Club
The New Club is a trendy new coffee house located right at the seafront in Brighton that serves modern American cuisine. The venue features a hip diner style, attracting a predominantly young crowd. The New Club’s owners, who traveled extensively throughout the US before opening this restaurant, have successfully created an authentic American feel in their establishment. The brunch menu includes a classic English breakfast option, but also an inventive Mexican egg dish with a spicy chilli tomato sauce and pepper salsa for the more adventurous breakfast types. In addition to their classic breakfast options, the New Club serves a great selection of bagels. They also exclusively use organic eggs and are happy to prepare vegan options upon request.
The independent French breakfast café, Mange Tout, is open for both breakfast and lunch every day of the week. Mange Tout strongly believe in using fresh and sustainable ingredients that are locally produced in Sussex, and they even serve their own coffee blend of five different ethically sourced beans, roasted in the area. Following the tradition of French cafés, Mange Tout serves delicious sweet and savoury croissants accompanied by the exclusive coffee. Their dedication to sustainability and outstanding quality of their products, as well as the attentive service, have helped develop Mange Tout into one of the prime breakfast spots in all of Brighton.
Opening hours: Mon-Wed 10am-6pm, Thu-Sat 10am-10pm & Sun 10am-5pm
Moskha Caffé is a family-run café, opened with the aim of providing a zen-like atmosphere for its customers; following the tradition of its name, which refers to the liberation of the spirit in Sanskrit. Liberation, total satisfaction and peace form the three pillars of Moskha Caffé. The local café serves a high-quality variety of breakfast choices, including classics such as homemade granola and American-style blueberry pancakes. However, Moskha Caffé does venture above classic breakfast options, with its inventive Huevos Rancheros breakfast, consisting of a crisp tortilla base with chorizo, black beans, sweetcorn and chipotle sauce topped with fried eggs and avocado salsa. They have a good range of egg choices and vegetarian dishes that can also be prepared vegan if requested.
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 7am-7pm
Billies is another cosy family-run business that believes in creating a home away from home for its customers. Breakfast at Billies is served all day and comes in very generous portions, with quick and extraordinarily attentive service. Billies’ menu is extensive and includes local handmade sausages, free-range eggs and fair-trade organic coffee. The All Day Jumbo Meat Breakfast and its vegetarian counterpart, as well as the cafe’s signature dish – the famous hash browns – are always prepared fresh and come with a wide choice of toppings. From the Farmhouse hash to Mexican-inspired avocado and bacon as well as Ranchero – the hash dishes are a must for everyone.
Opening hours: Mon-Sun 9am-4pm
The Breakfast Club
This retro-style diner serves up a variety of brunch options with a quirky twist. From stacked pancakes and eggs Benedict to indulgent breakfast burritos, The Breakfast Club combines classic comfort food with a lively atmosphere, making it a go-to spot for a satisfying brunch experience.
