Long time no blog, I know. Okay, I’m being dramatic – it’s only been three meagre months, but I’m not afraid to say that, to be quite honest, I’ve just not been feeling it.
I know a lot of you can relate right now with not finding any interest or inspiration in things you’d normally love. However, I’m back with a focus on something that every basic bitch loves; a BRUNCH – even better when it’s of the bottomless variety. Brighton’s brunch scene is growing, and there are now a multitude of options to choose from, whether you’re veggie, vegan, gluten-free or eat a bit of everything. Without further ado, let’s get stuck in.
If you’re from Brighton and enjoy a good old brunch, Six will undoubtedly pop to mind immediately. They’re preferable for their bottomless offerings of prosecco, bucks fizz and complimentary crème de cassis, and well known for their grand brunch bowls and highly instagrammable decor.
Of the three options, Six is a little on the pricer side, however in return you get a beautiful setting and delicious food. I normally go for the Vegan Breakfast, which comes with mushrooms, a hash brown, cherry tomatoes, avocado, falafel and hummus, all on a slice of sourdough with a little pot of beans *chefs kiss.*
A slightly more affordable place to grab a yummy brunch in Brighton is one of my oldest favourites, Alcampo Lounge! With separate menus for vegan and gluten/dairy free etc, it makes it really easy for those of us with dietary requirements or allergies.
For £7.95 you can grab yourself my usual, the Vegan Brunch, which comes with falafel (so Brighton), vegan ‘bacon’, hash browns, beans, tomato, mushrooms, spinach, red peppers AND toast. Phew.
They don’t take reservations here, but it’s huge and spacious and I’ve never had to wait for a table.
A slightly newer place on the scene nestled into Hove is Jo&Co, with gorgeous, modern decor and lovely staff. I’ve only been here once but would love to go back purely for their breakfast potatoes which I’ve been thinking about ever since (and their bubbles brunch which I’ve also been eyeing up; right up my street, if you can’t tell.)
I went for ‘Jo’s Vegan’, which came with BBQ jackfruit, spinach, mushrooms, beans, smashed avo, tomatoes, potatoes and toast. The jackfruit was a really nice welcome addition, and it all tasted fresh and healthy, so bonus points for that.
So, there we have it – three brilliant places to grab an oh-so-delightful brunch in our lovely city. I hope you enjoyed the post – speak soon!
