“Best Coffee in Brighton”
Review of Taylor St Baristas - CLOSED

Taylor St Baristas
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Forget ALL the coffee chains and cafes in Brighton - this is THE place for coffee lovers, and there dark chocolate is to DIE for!!!

Foodwise, to me, the maxim is - you get what you pay for.

Breakfastwise their menu cannot be touched - all the ingredients are top class, and cooked and presented with the same care and attention - BUT I feel the prices reflect this.

The coffee is up there with the best that Brighton can offer. You get serious long blacks and flat whites here from the New Zealand wing of the Proper Baristas Party.

The food is always tasty - especially the risotto specials and the fine use of halloumi in sandwiches, etc.

Wifi is fast and reliable.

There is a a small courtyard out the back.

We had the pleasure of a late summer mini break in Brighton a few weeks ago and on a lovely sunny Saturday morning a decent coffee and a spot of brunch seemed like just the thing to set us up for a walk along the beach to Hove.

Taylor St Baristas is situated no more than 5 minutes from the train station, on the main drag which takes you down to the beach. When we arrived at about 11am it looked full to bursting, we were about to turn tail and look elsewhere when one of the very friendly young lady baristas caught our eye and motioned us out back where we found a small terrace with a free table with our name on it.

A menu was soon provided which contained some very tasty looking brunch selections. I kicked off with a flat white which was an excellent example of the baristas art; just the right temperature, lovely consistency and a good strength. B had the filter coffee, which as warned was a little while in the making but was well worth the wait.

On the food front B eggs royal which looked pretty good and came with plenty of smoked salmon. However, the real winner had to be my choice of rarebit which came with a generous portion of ham and was topped off with a perfectly fried egg - looked divine and tasted even better.

I finished off my brunch with a double piccolo which was as pretty as a picture in its little glass and packed a nice caffeine punch. By this time all was good with the world and we had been set up beautifully for a stroll along the prom.

On our way out we stopped to admire the collection of coffee porn at the front of the shop. All manner of equipment is available to purchase, at very decent prices, to enhance your coffee drinking pleasure including my own personal favourite the aeropress. I narrowly avoided leaving with a very attractive individual coffee grinder - but I like to think that this gives me yet another good reason to return to the most excellent Taylor St Barista.
