Cafe Nation is great - the breakfast sandwiches taste homemade and the crepes are amazing too. Actually there is a zesty tuna crepe that is probably the best lunch in downtown Brighton. Its a great little community, everyone knows each other because they make it a point to go everyday. Although, I wish there was more of them behind the counter because the line gets long sometimes.

Whether I'm stopping for a coffee on my way to work or for a breakfast sandwich, CafeNation is the spot. Great coffee, great food, great service.

This is one of my favorite places to sit and read or to get a quick breakfast with friends. The coffee is delicious and strong and the menu is varied. They offer crepes and omelettes as well as the more expected breakfast sandwiches and pastries. On the weekend they have some brunch offerings but I've never tried those.

It can get busy during peak times (morning especially) but I've never had to wait for a table. The staff are friendly and prompt. All around a great place

Located on Washington Street in the heart of Brighton, Cafenation is the true epitome of a coffee shop. The coffee select is plentiful and tasty. The crêpes and paninis are made fresh and to-die-for.

An additional perk is the free wireless internet. They only offer it on Monday's through Thursday's (due to the extremely high volume of people who come into the shop, translating to lack of seating and slower bandwith). Have no fear! There's free public wi-fi offered by the town. I'm actually typing in Cafenation from it right now!

I really wanted to like this place. The can't complain about the food but the seating area wasn't comfortable at all. Next.
