Excellent tea? Check. ☑
Situated not too far from the beach, not too far from North Street - Cafe Coho is rapidly becoming one of my favourite new places to sit with a cup of tea and watch the world go by, catch-up with friends or set business meetings. Combined with free wifi (which I didn't know was available), a wide selection of hot/cold, sweet & savoury menu items and drinks, what's not to like?
You can tell service is excellent when the baristas remember the first order you ever made the second time you come in. Be prepared for a friendly, no-worries atmosphere.
Speaking of excellent, a brand of tea keeps appearing around Brighton that I'm slowly growing fond of called 'Tea Pigs'. I was confused when I first heard about it - mistaking it for a teapot of sorts - however you'll be pleased to know it's an ultra fresh variety of tea which comes in many varieties (superfruit, peppermint, redbush etc.,) not just your typical everyday breakfast tea.
Irritatingly, the prices are rather steep (a tiny cookie in a jar for 50p?), small brownies for over £2.20 - they also sell a variety of breakfast items, likewise boasting steep prices. (That might be because I'm a poor student though.)
First impressions great. Lasting impressions even better. See you tomorrow.

Nothing special is two words I would use to describe Piccolo.
Reasonably priced main courses - grabbing a pizza to eat-in for just over £3.50 isn't bad at all; comparing to the more pricey food in the area - however it wasn't anything special, and hardly the 'authentic Italian' I was looking for (the tomato sauce used on the base was okay to begin with, but left a strange aftertaste.)
"Strange aftertaste" goes for more than just the food also, the service was lacking severally; we waited for 45 minutes to get the bill after asking on several occasions, I thought we could quite easily walk out without anybody batting an eyelid.
Overall, Piccolo is okay. Nothing more, nothing less; just okay. Go in with any higher expectations and be prepared to be disappointed.
