Lost in the Lanes Brighton

A tranquil, modern cafe bar in the heart of the lanes, serving elevated seasonal lunch dishes, cocktails and wine

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.

In the spring/ summer of 2022 Lost in the Lanes underwent a major refurbishment. Expanding its original dining space up to 50 covers. Adding a bar and increasing the kitchen capacity. You can read about LOST 2.0 here.

Lost in lunch in the Lanes

The new grown-up Lost in the Lanes will still offer their famed brunch dishes. But the shift is definitely to that of an elevated lunch experience. Six seasonal dishes make up the centrepiece of the menu with sides and bar snacks as grazing supports. Head Chef James Flavell has used the new Lost in the Lanes direction to really flex his creativity and passion for locally sourced produce.

New wines and cocktails

Together with the new menu, Lost in the Lanes has been working with Hoegarden Wines to create a beautifully sippable wine list that focuses on provenance and indigenous varieties. A cocktail menu of classics given a creative twist has been assembled by local mixologist, Thanasis Karvelis.

Lunch in the Lanes can easily become a leisurely and drawn-out experience. It’s all too easy to get lost in conversation in this sophisticated oasis with fine food and drinks to see you cruising through to the late afternoon.

    Popped in for a brunch with a couple of colleagues and found LOST never fails to impress, from the warm welcome, to the stylish interior, speciality coffee, gorgeous tableware and fresh chef cooked food. Ordered the veggie LOST breakfast plus a side of crispy potatoes with truffle, rosemary and lemon… divine. Shame didn’t have room left for one of the cakes, made by head chef James Lavell. It’s a rare treat in Brighton to find somewhere so cosy yet so special and contemporary. Thank you LOST team for making a regular occasion into such a delicious morning. Will pop back for the luscious sounding slow cooked pork soon. Yum.

    Their brunches are so good! We tried the Turkish brunch box and it’s a journey through taste sensation – proper quality, gorgeous food with amazing attention to detail.

    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.
