Such a beautiful city with history, water views, and one million artisan coffee shops.
If you’re a coffee aficionado, Brighton coffee shops will keep your caffeine levels supreme ALL day.
Seriously, we walked past more coffee shops than we did people.
Perhaps that’s a slight exaggeration…but you get the point.
We ended up trying four or five cafes a day (WOO CAFFEINE)
and narrowed down our favorites to the list below.
Some of them were minimalist, some were strange,
some were too hipster for me to fathom, but most importantly,
all of them had great coffee.
Definitely the strangest of the lot, this shop features books hanging from the ceilings, dolls in every corner, and generally the randomest of items in the strangest of places. Thankfully the food and coffee were very tasty, so those quirks added to the “hipness” of this space rather than taking away from it. Check this place out for sure! It’s also close to the Brighton Open Market.
This space was incredible. The plants hanging from the ceiling + immense natural light helped make this very busy space feel airy and easy. The food was delicious, and the coffee was…perfect. I will say that the people who work there definitely know how good their grinds are haha, but I guess when you’re consistently rated highly, you just are that confident.
We went over here the first morning we got into Brighton. With a simple menu and delicious-smelling croissants, I knew we’d found a good one. I didn’t even #tripadvisor this place, we really just happened upon it.
Now who doesn’t like finely blended brews while perusing through some vintage antiques?!
I noticed that this space had more than just the hipsters of Brighton inside. Quite a few elderly people like this place, and they have tables for people to peacefully work while they sip.
Situated near the flea market, the clutter of Compass Point makes you feel like you’re having a delicious blend in the comfort of your grandmother’s living room.
Located across from the best donuts in Brighton, The Plant Room Coffee is sure to complement those delicious circles of heavenly goodness like nothing else.
For the longest time, I didn’t know what this place was called because of the symbol just on the outside. I called it the “tool” cafe. It is certainly too hip for me, but the espresso was understandable.
Sometimes hipster caffeine machines get boring and you’re ready for something for comfortable, more cozy. Plus the food here is deeelicious.
Out of all the Brighton coffee shops, this was our favorite stop. The decor inside was fantastic, the coffee was flavorful, and the people who work here are super fun. Definitely check it out.
But wait, this minimalist/black brick/artisan cafe ALSO has swings! If you’re lucky, they just might be available for you. Plus it’s an eight-minute walk from Curry Leaf Cafe (delicious Indian food).
