Spotted at mile 3 of the Brighton Marathon, this attractive Kemp Town establishment sits at the top of an area full of B&B’s, restaurants and cafes.  A visit on a sunny Sunday morning presented a chance to see whether the breakfasts were as impressive as the building they were being served in.

With a name familiar to those who have travelled to or read about one of the west coast of America, we ventured in to see if any of the coffee culture (or giant trees) had passed over the Atlantic to the south coast of Britain

A lazy Sunday without the Mrs around meant that the boys had to keep themselves occupied. Our Romanian correspondent Count Cumberland was back in the country and had eyed up Slice Sussex on his internet travels, so we made our way there for a late breakfast.

Over the years we've known this under a number of different names and held many different opinions.  But today its called The Hove Kitchen and we'll leave our preconceptions behind until after our last bite

Recommended to us by friend of TBM, @TidyJade, this Parisian styled cafe can be found a short distance from Brighton's main train station.  On a street usually full of tourists and commuters; can a sophisticated start to the day really be found?

During a chance visit to Henfield we stopped in Taste Deli for a coffee after meandering down the high street. On our way out we realised a second visit was needed; spotting their breakfast menu at the last minute. Never one to turn down a breakfast we revisited months later, the results of both visits you will find below.
