Tiffany's on North Road, Brighton has been suggested by a few correspondents, so we made a pilgrimage this weekend and it didn't disappoint. A splendid place. And I like the exterior, I like the way a cafe with a few owners over the years becomes a kind of history of typography.
The chips are very yellow. Almost dayglo. And crispy and delicious. The bacon, also crispy and delicious, but dark and brooding. A highly textured egg and a balancing sea of beans. A nice compact ebcb - pensioner size I'd say.
A simple condiment arrangement. I like the slight hint of translucency to the ketchup.
You look this way and you'd think one kind of cafe - traditional, solid, working-class, no-nonsense.
You look this way and you think a different kind of cafe; bohemian, young, going-out kind of people, buyers of fancy furniture, lots of nonsense. I like those contrasts in a cafe, seems very Brighton.
It's all about the type.
It's also very Brighton that they have to offer, and point out that they offer, a vegetarian option.
