On a visit to Brighton, on my way down from Brighton Station to the seafront, I popped in Grocer and Grain.
An excellent little grocery shop, always a pleasure to visit but not from where one would expect to be served quality coffee.
Grocer and Grain is a little grocery shop on a corner, a couple of minute walk down from Brighton Station. It used to be a quite street, until for whatever dumb reason, the traffic was diverted through this street.
Always a delight to visit. Cakes, bread, grains, fruit and vegetables, plants and cut flowers, a range of different coffee beans. And they also serve coffee.
Delightful selection of cakes, coffee beans sourced from three different companies. Widest selection of Union Hand Roasted I have seen anywhere.
Grocer and Grain also serves coffee and yet Union refuse to supply 1 kg bags, which is very short-sighted of Union. They sources from a fourth company, who roast the beans locally, for the coffee they serve.
I had a cappuccino, which was excellent. A little grocery shop, is not where you expect to find excellent coffee, but then Grocer and Grain excel at everything they do.
Later in the evening, finding open, I picked up one of their cakes. During the afternoon, I had visited Coffee at 33 and had an excellent cappuccino. I suggested source coffee beans from Coffee at 33 and sell their beans.
