Brightonians are spoilt for choice when it comes to good independent cafe's. Pick a stone from either Brighton or Hove's beach and fling it in land and you will be sure to smash a window of an exemplar establishment of which I speak. An embarrassment of riches, I wont waste your time with reviews of these fine caffeine purveyors preferring to direct your attentions to this quiet establishment hidden away on the most northerly quarter of Brighton's boundaries.

Situated off the London road the Coach house is ideal for either 'decompressing' upon re-entry into Brighton, or perhaps as a last hurrah to steady one self before leaving our epicurean paradise for McCostabucks motorway service station oblivion.
The coffee at the coach house cannot be overrated, whilst I'm a coffee addict who'd happily carry a caffeine drip, my partner is restricted to decaf for medical reasons and she also thinks this is the best coffee she has had by a country mile. As we've only visited for lunchtime soup and sandwiches we can only attest to the freshness of the ingredients (the cafe is next door to the local independent bakery) and the generous portions. The home made cakes are beyond reproach, but you need to get in early to sample the full selection as those friendly locals which other reviewers have commented on, certainly know which side their bread is buttered in this regard!

Service is welcoming and without artifice with that gentle touch of bonhomie only experienced in small community cafe's.

We dropped in for lunch and really enjoyed the food which was freshly prepared and tasted great. The service was friendly and we really enjoyed our visit. We also treated ourselves to a scone and some cake which was beautifully cooked and thoroughly enjoyable. Perhaps the décor could have been a bit smarter but the food was lovely and if we are in the area we will go back again. Highly recommended.

We popped in on our way north thinking we would stay for tea and cake but the specials board was too tempting! We had a lovely lunch, great portion sizes and deliciously home cooked. We finished with cake and more coffee as the coffee is fab and the cakes are amazing. The owners were so friendly, as well as the local regulars. Will definitely come again when we are down south.
