“Good coffee and food, furniture to browse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

All coffees £2 and they were good quality and well made. I also had a bacon and egg sandwich (coffee and sandwich £5). Best sandwich I have had in a while- freshly made, nice granary bread, decent bacon, egg still runny. Inside has a very nice look; retro style furniture and other items for sale. We sat out the front in the sun which was very pleasant. A great addition to the North Laine.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Very cool interior and laid back vibe, however, the coffee was thoroughly disappointing.

At £2 my flat white was reasonably priced, but it was not good.

The milk had been over-steamed meaning the texture of the coffee was all wrong and the taste did not compensate for the poor texture.

Given the quality of coffee available in the local area I'll struggle to justify returning.

“Wonderful Coffee!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

As someone who is very fussy about coffee, I was intrigued by seeing the reviews for the Coffee Counter and so on a recent day trip to Brighton I made the effort of seeking it out. Located in a buzzy part of the town, which is full of independent shops and eateries, the Coffee Counter is indeed well worth a visit.
Great strong coffee is served by young and friendly staff , the range of sandwiches looked good to, I will definitely come back for more coffee.

“I N C R E D I B L E !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

You can count on coffee counter to give you the BEST coffee, the BEST experience and the BEST toasted sandwiches ever. Set on a quiet road only a few minutes from the Laines, and situated next to a Vintage shop and amazing florist, you couldn't pick a better place to chill with a coffee out in the sun. Perfect. Amazing customer service, and the manager is really kind!
