Description
The Lanes Coffee House is a warm and cozy coffee and tea cafe in The Lanes of Brighton on Ship Street right on the way to the beach. We have the best coffee in Brighton, 10+ teas, sticky cakes, vegan and gluten free, hot home made soup, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, toasties, our own baked pastries, real dairy ice cream and much more. Our take away coffee, tea and snacks are very popular. You are always assured of a warm welcome from the friendly owners, and great customer service. A small, independent cafe. We have 2 entrances, the main one is on Ship Street and a side entrance from Prince Albert Street. Look out for Bob, our knight in shining armour! And we are dog friendly.
