Lost in the Lanes Brighton

A tranquil, modern Restaurant & Coffee House in the heart of the lanes, serving fresh & homemade Brunch, Lunch, Cocktails & Wines, Coffee & Cakes

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 of 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 homemade 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.

The window seating will provide you with an Insta-worthy setting for photographing your latte art, as well as a lovely spotting for people watching and general musing.

A daily deli that’s not every-day

Lost In The Lanes is currently open 6 days a week (closed Tuesday) from 9 am – 3 pm for freshly prepared breakfast, brunch & lunch. There is also a selection of morning pastries & sweet treats for those looking for something a little lighter.

Brunch at Lost in the Lanes

Brunch is big business in Brighton and Lost in the Lanes doesn’t fall by the wayside. As with all the food at Lost, the focus is on simplicity. Relying on quality ingredients and good cooking doesn’t mean what you’re getting is basic – far from it. The three main ingredients in all the food at Lost in the Lanes are simplicity, freshness and provenance. Chef James Flavell ensures the menu is as bustling with life as the Lanes themselves, updating and reinventing the menu with the seasons.

You’ll find plenty of vegetarian and vegan items on the menus too, for everything from a vegan cake to go with your plant-milk latte to hearty cooked breakfasts. Gluten-free diets are also catered for but because of the nature of the kitchen allergen-free dishes cannot be guaranteed.

    I had Tide by Lost in the Lanes and I was absolutely blown away! Would 100% recommend to anyone, but especially anyone craving some authentic Southern American delicious. It was a little taste of New Orleans, yum.
