Best cafes in Brighton’s Laines

Katie Da Cunha Lewin

Coastal Brighton is a real treasure trove of coffee shops. In fact, according to The Argus newspaper, the average Brightonian spends £177 a year on coffee, which is £25 more than Londoners. So if you're a keen bean for the ultimate coffee kick, get on down to Brighton where you can enjoy these cafes in the historic North and South Laines.

Leman Tea Room
 
This cute and cosy café hosts a window full of cakes and shelves full of teapots. Its kitschy décor gives it an old-school charm, and makes it a perfect place for a wintery date.  This charming tea room also serves high tea so you can really indulge.
