69 Church Road, Hove BN3 2BB

Located on the corner of Wilbury Road and Church Road, Baked offers tasty coffees, cakes and lunches.  Upstairs can sometimes get crowded, however there’s a downstairs seating area where you’ll find plenty of room. They’re also dog friendly, meaning that it’s a great reason to take a trip there with your four legged friend, or an excuse to spy on others!  

Bake Out

1 The Drive, Hove, BN3 3JE

Not to be confused with Baked, Bake Out in Hove is part of a small collection of four coffee shops which started out in Lewes. As well as serving locally roasted coffee, it offers a mouth-watering collection of artisan breads, which range from rustic brown squares to white farmhouse loafs. The store in Hove also offers a bistro style menu, with its avocado and feta toast looking particularly tasty. If you’re looking to get some freelance work done then you might want to give it a miss however as it doesn’t offer wifi.         

Small Batch

67c Church Road, Hove, BN3 2BD

Small Batch has come a long way from its beginnings of selling coffee from a cart in Brighton and Hove. The self-proclaimed coffee nerds have created a business which is driven by its ethical focus which makes sure they source the best coffee from small independent farmers in Africa and Latin America. Hove is home to a number of Small Batch coffee shops, however the one on Wilbury Road is great option, thanks to its outdoor terrace and its roomy, industrial style interior.  

Salvage Cafe

84 Western Rd, Hove BN3 1JB

This junkyard style coffee shop is home to an eclectic mix of furniture and memorabilia which can be found on one of Hove’s busiest streets. Delicious coffee, tea and towering cakes are served amongst the quirky setting as well as gluten-free options too.  If you like your brunch served with a helping of good music then there’s also a turntable playing vinyl too.  

The Crumpetty Tree

75-76 Western Rd, Hove BN3 2JQ

Sitting prettily in Hove’s Palmeira Square, The Crumpetty Tree is an independent café offering freshly made sandwiches and crumpets. Not only are the sandwiches tasty, they’re also music themed, with names such as The Notorious P.I.G, Return of the Mack the Red Zepplin making for an entertaining menu. You can also build your own crumpetty crumpets, with a range of toppings such as jam, honey and Nutella making it an excellent option for brunch.
