Starfish & Coffee Brighton

When Juice FM’s Tony Marks bought this building, he planned to realise his dream cafe. He wanted to give the Brighton residents the ‘best breakfast’ in the city along with amazing coffee. The Brighton cafe was named after Tony’s favourite Prince song – Starfish & Coffee –  and Tony’s passion for great music has had a strong influence on the venue. Great coffee is an essential component of the offer, with Tony and the team running a strong barista game using coffee roasted by local legends, Coffee@33.

Using local suppliers to ensure quality

At Starfish and Coffee Brighton, all ingredients are of the highest quality and at their peak of freshness. The delicious eggs, which feature heavily on the menu,  are laid by the happy hens at Holmansbridge Farm just outside Lewes. Delicious sausages and bacon come from a farm in Bodiam East Sussex.

    Great addition to Queens Park. Quality brunches, exceptional coffee. We had the vine tomatos, smashed avocado and egg. Wishing this venue all the success in future as it is quality through and through. From a Hanover resident.
