BRAVO award winners for

Brighton Cafe

Best Brighton cafe

Throw a stone anywhere in the city and you’re likely to hit a great Brighton cafe. So it’s safe to say, you’ll have more trouble deciding on, than finding, a place to go. You voted in your thousands, to help us find the very best in the city. And the winner of the BRAVO for Best Cafe goes to – Oeuf Cafe. Huge congratulations to the team.

First place

Oeuf Cafe Hove is as pretty as a picture with its beautiful entrance way on Third Avenue. Oeuf serves a really great breakfast or the #2 Best Brunch in Brighton with local coffee, local tea and, if you’re in the mood, delicious cocktails and wine. Perfect poached eggs on sourdough or Oeuf’s signature FrumpetsTM (French toast crumpets) are loaded with delicious toppings. There are classic brunch dishes, pancakes, waffles, simply delicious porridge and even a naughty bacon butty. Enjoy beautiful alfresco seating if the sun is shining. What’s not to love? Nothing according to you!

Second place

Perched on top of the city, this excellent cafe holds a lofty position at the top of the BRAVOs Best Cafe list as well as #3 for Best Brunch. Spacious, light and lovely, Starfish and Coffee is a neighbourhood favourite but also attracts cafe lovers from around the city willing to brave the ear-popping heights of Muesli Mountain to #BrunchLikeABoss. And well they might! The chef is classically trained, the coffee is hot, the pastries are fresh, the produce is local and the welcome is as warm as the sun streaming in through the windows.

Third place

BRAVO voters return Moksha Caffe to the Best Cafe list year on year showing this family-run cafe has got a winning-formula. Not for the first time, Moksha takes home #1 Best Brunch for their fabulous menu of brunch classics and clever twists. On top of that, the all day menu offers a great selection of loaded burgers, crunchy salads and tasty soups plus seasonal daily specials made with fresh local produce. Moksha Caffe also serves house blended, locally roasted coffee to your exact specification. We think this North Laine cafe has it all and so do you.
