The place is small and full of atmosphere. If you want a decent coffee and a nice toastie at a good price then this place is for you. No toilet (I think).

This is a lovely little cafe in the Laines, serving good coffee and amazing food - my friend and I are big foodies and hard to impress, but the 2 toasties we tried were the best we have ever had! I highly recommend the Reuben and the Tandoori Chicken, and will be back to try the rest of the menu... More

An absolute little gem of a café tucked around a backstreet in the North Laine area of Brighton. The food and atmosphere is great and the chef makes some of the best sandwiches around. Can't recommend it enough.

The best coffee I had in a very long time! The location is excellent for a quiet morning coffee, and they have the most wonderful and lovely staff. Also a great place for a tasty breakfast.

Amazing food, amazing coffee! The actual cafe is small so seats are limited but it is definitely worth waiting for (don't leave just wait for a table!), just makes it that extra bit special! Best Eggs Benedict and flat white I've had! If you're visiting Brighton or live there make it your local! Couldn't recommend enough!

In a city full of coffee and sandwiches-I can easily say that The Coffee Counter is head and shoulders above the rest. Great location, awesome service, serious coffee and sumptuous sandwiches.
