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?

Usually we have passed over bakeries thinking of them as being not worthy a review.  But special circumstances deserve a special mention.  At three locations in Brighton & Hove you will now be able to try a bit of what France does best, here on our shore.  If amazing bread, cakes, tarts, sausage rolls or eclairs are needed to prise you out of bed first thing in the morning, then this is the place for you.

This was a bit of a find.  Been here for 18 months and only just discovered it. Mainly because it's on the stretch of Kings Road between Hove lawns and the King Alfred that seems to be a row of shops that are always closed down.  Sugardough is a bakery that specialises in sourdough breads, as well as a fine looking selection of cakes and pies. It’s a small shop but has a few small tables if you want to sit in, or the beach is a short walk away.
