Lost in the Lanes Brighton

Lost in the Lanes Brighton, as the name suggests, is hidden away in the famous Lanes shopping area of the city. You’ll find Lost in the Lanes at 10 Nile Street, a narrow street that looks more like a shortcut off the main Lanes. This in itself makes Lost in the Lanes a little treasure, either to find by chance while meandering or as a little favourite to keep to yourself.

Inside you are immediately greeted by a display of tempting home-made cakes and pastries. At the back of the café’s comfy seating area the kitchen pass opens up onto the heart of the action where delicious brunches and lunches are dispatched to eager regulars and curious explorers alike.
