Go here. Order pancakes. They're the best pancakes in Brighton! The coffee is great, they have a selection of non-dairy milks and offer a ton of vegan food options. Staff are friendly and laid-back, the back garden is a lovely little suntrap too.

I have lived near Nowhere man for some months so I have had the chance to try their meal and it is actually delicious. Both the bagels and the pancakes are highly recommended!

I loved this cafe and their pancakes, but the service was unsatisfactory! Not sure it's because we were the first customers that morning, the staff looked tired or bored and didn't bother taking our order.
