Lost in the Lanes opened its doors in August 2017. Our goal was to create a daytime cafe and coffeeshop in Brighton’s historic lanes that welcomed everyone.  A place where you could be assured of finding not just delicious brunch, lunch and coffee but also have a lovely restful experience.

At LOST we are inspired by ‘simplicity’. Our small menu is uncomplicated, using wholesome food made from quality, seasonal ingredients.  Our love of interiors and design is also a big part of who we are at LOST.  The soothing tones, natural elements and uncomplicated lines we hope provide a restful backdrop to your visit.

At LOST we subscribe to the belief that ‘less is more’, offering a small but well executed menu.  We offer a single coffee blend from the excellent Hasbean Roastery and a seasonally changing daytime menu that takes the needs of most diners into account.

Chef James Flavell and his kitchen team spent months perfecting our signature breakfasts, elevating each individual element on the plate.  The simplest of ingredients cooked to perfection! We feel certain that we are now the proud purveyors of the best breakfast and coffee in Brighton.

At LOST we are more than just breakfast.  Our brunch and lunch menu changes with the seasons offering familiar ingredients and interesting flavours.  Our warm, attentive hospitality creates a friendly, welcoming destination for both lovers of good food and coffee.

We look forward to welcoming you all through our doors very soon!
