It’s no secret that Brighton is full of independent businesses, and this is definitely part of what makes visiting this vibrant seaside city so fun. The city’s streets are bursting with quirky shops, restaurants and cafes, meaning that when it comes to finding a great cup of coffee, you’ll be within a stone’s throw of a number of cool options. Nope, you won’t be resorting to Starbucks or Costa for your mid-morning caffeine fix – this is a town with more than a few alternatives to the national chains. Having lived in Brighton myself, I’ve definitely made my acquaintance with most of the coffee shops around town, so here are my top choices for a delicious cup of coffee by the sea. Mine’ll be a flat white, please!
