Pause Cafe

30/05/2009 Pause Cafe, New England Rd, Brighton.

frontalpausePause specialises in all day breakfasts, hot and cold snacks and tasty lunch time specials – just the place to feed our faces and a welcome oasis of eateries at the end of a busy morning spent shopping along London Road.


It’s a glorious sunny afternoon and there is plenty of seating outside for those who prefer their breakfasts alfresco. Inside has an upmarket coffee bar feel with free Wi-Fi, modern diner style stools along the walls and big brown leather sofas complementing the bright yellow interior.


There are a variety of breakfasts  to choose from, including Eastern, Continental and an intriguing sounding Ritzy breakfast but I stuck with the good old Veggie – egg, beans, mushrooms, veggie sausage and two slices of toast at £6.95 with a choice of fruit juice and coffee included. Dan had the Traditional; comprising of rasher, egg, sausage, tomato, mushroom and toast- again at £6.95 with tea or coffee and a glass of juice included in the price.

If you don’t fancy breakfast there are plenty of wraps, snacks and goodies  on offer with a nice choice of  herbal teas and healthy options for those of you watching your waistlines. Daily lunch specials  include curry, stir fry and Moussaka and on today’s menu was Prawn and avocado wrap with seafood sauce and salad for £5.25 and Spicy lamb kebab wrap with cucumber raita and salad for £5.25.

Breakfast soon arrives and is very good. The food was piping hot and eggs were cooked nice and medium. Dan thought his sausages were a little skinny but nicely flavoured all the same as was the bacon, which  tasted like it was cooked as you would at home under the grill – nice and pink with a crispy rind . Condiments were top name brands. The fruit juice was a particularly appreciated and with drinks included  in the price this made for a very good value breakfast by Brighton standards.

Pause describe themselves as stylish and friendly and though this is only our first visit here, we would have to agree. The food’s not half bad either and they also do take away. For more info check out their web page: Pause Cafe.


After Breakfast it’s always worth popping across the road to Paul Bruton’s Army Surplus store – a cornucopia of everything Army and Navy. Today’s bargain buy- a pair of industrial (and no doubt acid resistant) rubber gloves for only 50p.
