The Morning After in Brighton
|| Whether you’ve
got the hangover from hell or just want to start the day the right
way, there are plenty of cafés in Brighton serving cooked breakfasts
If it’s a typical ‘greasy spoon’ that you’re
looking for head straight for the Naff Caff [map]
on Western Road in Hove, which is very popular with students, Brightoners
and visitors alike.
The huge fry-ups with chips, bacon, egg, mushrooms, sausage, beans
and toast are the obvious favourites – and are all usually washed
down with a mug of tea or coffee. A vegetarian option is also available
along with lunches and light snacks.
To grab a bite to eat with the locals you need to visit Dumb Waiter
in the North Laine district, where you can enjoy breakfast, sandwiches,
salads, pies and all sorts of snacks. If you can’t face food

a little eatery next to the West Pier and close to a new paddling
pool and play area. It’s open all day and into the evening serving

a café, bar and restaurant rolled into one. Popular with office
workers, tourists and businesspeople, it has an extensive menu on
offer from breakfasts and baguettes to full evening meals.
