Easily missed among the council buildings in Horsham town centre, this cafe guards one of the entrances to the towns wonderful park.  Would their breakfast match the beautiful surroundings?


Thornes Foods, Brighton

Thorne's Foods [map]
39 Upper Gardner Street
Brighton, East Sussex
Tel:  01273 573660

*As of May 2012 Thornes has ceased trading*

Opening Times: Confusing!  The menu said that breakfast was served only on a Saturday & Sunday from 9-11am.  However the sandwich board outside said that they were open from 8am daily.  To further confuse things the website says that they are open from 9:30am.  This link suggests there is a weekday menu, but no times are given.  Take your pick!

As breakfast locations go, only Bills can compete with Thorne’s Foods for lay-out and cafe setup that we have visited so far; with a trendy food shop on the ground floor, a local art display on the first and a large converted loft cafe on the second.  Their attractive website and menu online demanded a visit.

Opening Times:  They are open for breakfast from 8am on weekdays and from 9am at the weekend (and Bank Holidays)

In a touristy area of the city sits something of an anomaly.  Two independent cafes found side by side - Marwood’s and Cafe Coho. What we found when we ventured through the door of Cafe Coho, was that there was life amongst the fodder.

The faux poshness of Cote has long caught my eye, usually following a whiz bang meal in Pom Poko surrounded by sweaty indie kids. So when the Metropole turned us away for breakfast on my Mums 60th, what better occasion to give Cote a try. Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Brighton could well have one of the first locations that try, outside of the gym, to blend fitness and breakfast successfully.  So with the promise of a healthy breakfast and possible lifestyle change in store we paid them a visit.

“So let me get this straight.  There's a place dedicated to breakfast that’s open from morning to night, seven days a week. No, I don't believe you, it’s too good to be true. We are going to have to find out for ourselves.”
