A simply lovely and basic place not just for coffee and other great drinks but lunch too!
I don't want to say to much else as there's enough people coming and I want to be able to get in in future!

Having relocated back to the North Laine, I was looking forward to having the occasional lunch out.
Wai Kika Moo Kau was my first outing. The Burrito looked tempting as did the Felafel; in we went and sat near the back where there's a lot more natural light.
We were soon given two battered menus. I asked if they did a lunch special menu - I was told the menu was it.
Looking through it didn't seem to offer much more than what I had already pre-chosen so stuck with the Burrito whilst my partner when for the Felafel.
Presentation was good but taste was nothing special.
My partner was struggling to cut the Pitta and thought the Felafel dry. I have to say, when I tried it myself I thought that it was a pretty lousy Felafel. Really guys, shoving some Felafels with a bit of a salad in a pitta bread is shoddy. No Homous, Tahini or sauce.
As to the fries, you can tell they were fried in old oil.
What a shame.
On a general note, they did offer a mini-lunch special of soup and salad wrap for £5.95 which I wish I had gone for now if I was spending that sort of money.

Now Marino's: popped in for sit down weekday lunch.
Choose the small cod and chips. Nice portion size though think my cod could have been cooked for a minute more.
Can of Coke not very cold.

What a transformation! Get here before 7 for the special deals however it's still reasonable priced a la carte.
3 Stirling Place, Hove BN3 3YU
Strictly focussing on Sunday Roasts - we were rather disappointed with the portions particularly the veg - 3 carrots, 1 parsnip, 1 roast potato considering the price though I understand people will say it reflects in the quality and where the food is sourced - I just wished I could have tasted the difference.
Or perhaps it was a cunning ploy to leave us feeling hungry enough for a dessert (which we did - again, nothing to write home about).
Don't get me wrong, the food is nice but nothing particularly stood out and being the first time I've ever eaten here, it'll be some time before I choose to eat here again though I do love this place for a drink and a social.

Some pubs from the outside just don't entice you in. Take the Heart & Hand - I've never been in there but went to meet friends yesterday eve and I loved it!
Seems to me like a proper old boozer with a Landlady who can tell you a few stories!
There's a old skool jukebox in the corner, music posters on the walls.
I love it.
1d St. James's Street, Brighton BN2 1RE
Popped in here for a quick expresso before heading up St James.
I like the fact I didn't have to ask for a glass of water to go with the expresso.
Even though it was busy, there still was room to sit down though shame someone doesn't keep the tables clear - after all this a busy place.
However it is a great place for coffee.
25 New Road, Brighton BN1 1UG
Being on one of the busiest streets in Brighton you can easily overlook this place but step inside and you'll find yourself in a neat quirky little bar which also does real ales.
When we went yesterday (Sunday) eve, a lovely Jazz band was playing.
12 Victoria Terrace, Hove BN3 2WB
There is nothing quite like a refreshing slap in the face which is what I got when I stumbled across Sugardough, aiming to be somewhere else.
The first thing that strikes you is the small quantity but nice variety of cakes, biscuits, buns displayed on rather ordinary thin bookshelves in baskets. BUT you can tell by the 'bake' this is not your run of the mill baked goods you'd typically find. These are handmade.
The second thing that struck me, next to shelving your likely to find in a small flat was the typical large industrial shelving you'd expect to see in a bakery filled with trays of cooling goods including PIES.
What is all the more strange is this place has sprung up from nowhere in what I consider a quite inhospitable Victoria Terrace - an odd line of shops next to two lanes of traffic flowing each way.
Now just because something looks good doesn't mean it tastes good and perhaps out of pity felt obliged to buy a cupcake.
Inside, there are a couple of tables and chairs at the front. To the rear the Baker is working away in what appears to be the most open kitchen in the world, as if they've gone out and bought all their equipment from a catering supplier, set it up and just got on with the job.
The Pies did look good and were not long out of the oven. So I bought one along with now two cupcakes from a lovely lady behind her small counter who is clearly one of the proprietors.
Everything is made from scratch. They do not use premixes so dominant in supermarkets and their in-house bakeries as well as high street bakeries (which are actually not very healthy at all).
Despite all this the proof is in the taste.
I've would never say I was a pie fan. When I've tried Artisan pies sold at Festivals and the such. I've often felt slightly disappointed.
When I tried Sugardoughs (still warm from the oven) pie I was blown away. The combination of the filling with what I can only describe as the most delicious buttery pastry just was awesome. I felt a road to Damascus moment as I became enlightened to PIE.
Guess what. That pie only cost £2.50
Whether you're looking for pie or sweet bakes or just taking a stroll along the promenade. This place so deserves a visit and your patronage even if you just go buy a coffee or a tea.
Check it out.
46 Lower Addiscombe Road, London CR0 6AA
This was my first visit to Earlsfield to meet a friend who had just moved into the area.
Mel's had been recommended by her other half and we turned up on a Saturday lunchtime.
It's a nice place, the light has a nice balance with seating around the walls at the front with an annexe at the back that has more natural light.
In fact, there's a nice bar with a selection of draughts and bottles of wines as well as spirits.
The place was busy with mothers and their children/babies but this didn't in any way affect the ambience of the place.
We had no problem finding a place to sit and there's table service.
You'll find a good selection on the menu with a variety of breakfasts with eggs Benedict and Royale's along with a variety of lunches and sandwiches.
We both plumped for the tuna cheese melt with coffee's which came quickly with an excellent side salad.
I for some reason was expecting a Panini however the baguette was fine if somewhat huge.
In short it's a good place.
