Over the years visiting the sights of London’s South Kensington area, I have often visited a quaint Italian cafe located near the area’s tube station.  Stumbling across it on a business trips years ago, I have always returned as their coffee was one of the first real experiences of good quality coffee from freshly ground beans.  This initial foray into the ways of a barista hooked me onto this beverage lifestyle choice and made a visit there a must every-time I pass.

On a whim and spurred on by a few drinks the night before, we hobbled into George Street in Hove. Strangely enough even though a few of us live in the area we couldn't think of any cafes to try out. In the end it was left to Count Cumberland to find our breakfast treat for the day.


The Bystander Cafe, Brighton

The Bystander Cafe
1 Terminus Road
East Sussex, BN1 3PD

In a prime location opposite Brighton station, potentially this cafe is in an ideal for a pre-commute breakfast before or for an early morning snack. So did the quality of the location match the quality of the breakfast?


Truffles, Henfield

High St
Henfield, West Sussex
Tel:  01273 494469

Last Visited: December 2011

Another weekend and another visit to an idyllic Sussex village.  This time we've headed to one of county's cafe/bakery chains to experience their take on breakfast.  The question is will they let in a man wearing full Lycra?


Daniellas Wacky Diner, Shoreham

Evoking images of Timmy Mallet's appearances on UK Breakfast TV in the 1980’s, Shoreham can boast to having one of the more interesting names for one of it's many cafes.  Always a sucker for cleaver marketing it was inevitable that we would pay them a visit and see whether Daniella was really that wacky?
