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.

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

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.

La Fourchette Patisserie in Hove has quickly become a very popular destination for those seeking a sophisticated start to the day.  The full tables and positive word of mouth could mean we were in for a treat.


Cafe Milan, South Kensington

Last Visited: February 2012

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.
