A couple of years ago, we wrote a blog post on the Ten Best Coffee Shops in Brighton. Although a number of our recommendations still stand, this post was long overdue a refresh, and with 3,500 caffeine-craving delegates descending on Brighton for BrightonSEO now seemed like the perfect time to do so! Although many of our original recommendations still remain, we’ve spruced up our list somewhat to make way for some of the new kids on the block.
You can find them all marked on our map below as well as our favourite places to eat, drink and visit.
So without further adieu, here are our favourite coffee shops in Brighton.
Marwood Coffeehouse & Bar
Marwood Coffeehouse invites you to “bring your friends, your mum, a friend from London, lovers of coffee, your dog, your laptop, your veggie friends, star wars fans” (…Basically anyone you can think of) to their quirky little coffee shop located just a short stroll from the Brighton Centre. Whoever you decide to take, we’re certain they’ll approve of their coffee ninjas impressive skills and life changing cakes all the while surrounded by retro books, toys and bric-a-brac.

The Plant Room – Expresso Bar
On the day of BSEO, the Brighton Centre can be a whirl of constant conversation and information. Of course, this is exactly why we love the conference, however if you’re after a moment to yourself to mull over everything you’ve learnt then head to The Plant Room Expresso Bar (there’s two in Brighton). Serving specialty coffee and simple, wholesome food, this coffee shop has a laid back, zen vibe.

The Lanes Coffee House
For a truly authentic Brighton experience, get yourself to the Lanes Coffee House. Here, you can sit back, with a latte in hand, and people watch out the window as locals navigate the nooks and crannies of Brighton’s back streets. They claim to have the best coffee in town and you’re guaranteed a warm welcome.

Small Batch Coffee Company
Since our original post, Small Batch has gone from strength to strength, with branches popping up all over the place. For us, it’s the undisputed King of Coffee in Brighton. For BrightonSEO-goers, the closest branches can be found either on Western Road, towards Hove or under MyHotel on Jubilee Street in the city centre.

The Coffee Counter
Located within the Vine Street Studios in the North Laine, the Coffee Counter has a great little £5 meal deal on offer between 12 and 2 Monday to Friday making it a good option for lunch as well as a coffee break on Conference day.
