There’s not shortage of decent places to grab a good coffee in cosmopolitan Brighton, but one of the finest I’ve found so far is Small Batch Coffee in Jubilee Street.
The place is pretty large for a coffee bar, but the atmosphere was pleasant, and there seemed a good mix of people inside.
Next to the counter is what looks like the bench of a chemistry lab, with strange hubbly bubbly glass devices demanding a closer look.
It turns out that this arrangement is called a syphon bar, and it’s the kind of thing that mad-for-it coffee aficionados love, as they can watch their coffee being lovingly created IN FRONT OF THEIR VERY EYES.
Next to the chemistry lab is a display packed with delightful looking beautiful looking pastries, cookies, sandwiches, brownies and cakes. I had an apple-flavoured flat biscuit thing and it really was particularly delicious.
Small Batch Coffee Company run six outlets around Brighton, with this large one at Jubilee Street branch being the flagship store.
