Best Cafe Brighton

As a city Brighton spends more on coffee per capita than any other part of the UK, we also have the highest number of freelancers and contractors. Are the two things connected? We suspect so. What makes for the Best Cafe is down to you; powerful wifi and comfy chairs, good cake, fresh lunches and friendly staff might all come into it, but you’ve got to start with seriously good coffee.
This year’s Best Cafe category was sponsored by Suzanne Gregory.

1st place

No stranger to a BRAVO win, this is the second time Moksha Caffe has grabbed themselves a top spot and twice they’re making a top three appearance in this year’s competition.

It’s a well-earned return to first place for this family-run and operated North Laine cafe.

2nd place

You climbed, you ate and you voted. Starfish and Coffee may want you to #BrunchLikeABoss, but they #BravoLikeABeast! They’ve held a top spot since opening in 2018, making this their fourth year to win a BRAVO. No wonder people brave the ear-popping heights of the Muesli Mountain to pay them a visit.

3rd place

When it comes to cafe culture you thought the Parisian chic stylings of Cafe Oeuf was just the right amount of ‘ooh la la!’ to earn them a top spot in the BRAVOs. The unique stylings and a locally sourced menu of beautiful brunch, lunch and cocktails earn this Hove newbie a place in the coveted top three.
