Pizza Place
$$
“Purezza Brighton (purity) was formed by Stefania Evangelisti and Tim Barclay in 2015, setting out with the aim of providing a range of exciting Italian plant based, vegan options to the UK. The restaurant has a wooden and rustic feel to it, with bar stools at the counter where you can take in all the drama of the large wood fired pizza oven. Their delicious pizzas are made with gluten free, hemp or sough-dough bases - so perfect for intolerances! They also offer a selection of raw food dishes and gluten free pasta dishes. It is not all about savoury dishes either with a full dessert menu featuring a chocolate calzone and Oreo pizza.”

Wine Bar

“Ten Green Bottles has become the go to destination for those who love a great quality glass (or two) or wine served by the most knowledgeable team in town. Located centrally (off the North Laine) and offering a chilled, comfortable atmosphere, it’s the perfect place for a pre-dinner drink or after work tipple. ”

Café
“Starfish & Coffee is an independent neighbourhood cafe, and winner of the Brighton Restaurant Awards ‘Best Brunch’ 2018. The space inside is light, bright and airy. And just like the food, the décor has a local theme, with all the fixtures and fittings installed by tradespeople from the area. As for the food itself, the focus on local Sussex produce in no way detracts from the choice or the quality. The menu offers amazing brunch options for meat eaters and vegans alike - definitely worth a visit!”

Bakery
“A tiny quaint cafe with adjoining bakery where you can see the bakers creating the delights. Hands down, best croissants you can get. I would recommend plain ones to takeaway for breakfast on the beach (but get coffee elsewhere as the service is very slow!)”
