There’s a general assumption that places with poached eggs and avocado on the menu can’t be classed as great restaurants. As people who are sometimes overcome by a moderately feral craving for a bloody mary, that offends us. Café Rust is exactly the kind of cool-meets-casual brunch spot where they take ingredients seriously. The croque madame comes with a rich, near-nutty béchamel sauce, the garlic and herb beans are our new favourite reason to not hit snooze, and the welsh rarebit is one of the most profound ways to mainline mustard. 

There are three Café Rusts dotted around Brighton, but thanks to its charming little patio, the one on Preston Road is our top pick—especially because it’s just a 10-minute walk away from Brighton Open Market’s abundance of artisan candles and food stalls. If you’re heading to the beach, hit up their Kemptown location or just stop by for a Red Roaster organic caffeine hit come 2pm.
