Cold misty mid-week in Brighton

A cold day. Warm in the sun walking to station to catch a train to Gatwick, but at Gatwick, no sun, very cold.

Train at least running to Gatwick, in contrast with Monday evening. But train I wished to catch Gatwick to Brighton cancelled.

1212 Gatwick Express to Brighton running, but wifi not working.

An excursion to Blend and Brew Brighton. I have not found open on previous visits to Brighton. Barely little more than a kiosk. Coffee not great, it was not worth the excursion.

They are going to move into opposite corner vacated by Trafalgar Books and open a coffee shop which will be open on weekends.

I had assumed only open in the morning to catch commuters, but open until four o’clock.

Had I not walked down to and along the seafront, I would have had a coffee and lunch at Coffee at 33 or maybe lunch at The Longhouse (though not coffee as only fake milk).

Looked in The Plant Room. I thought did lunch, but no.

The unattractive exterior and its location, belies the open airy interior. Coffee supplied by Allpress.

The coffee to be tried on a future visit to Brighton.

It was then back to North Laine.

Looked in Infinity Foods Kitchen, did not fancy.

Iydea, very poor choice, very poor compared with weekends. Maybe because now mid-day. Chose best of a poor choice. It looked as though been sitting there since lunchtime. A big mistake It was not good. It would have better to have walked back to Infinity Foods Kitchen.

Lunch has has always been excellent at Iydea, something to look forward to. But not this year. It has gone rapidly downhill.

Looked in Magazine Brighton.

Then to Coffee at 33. Filled bread roll and cappuccino. A mistake, I should have had V60 and a filled bread roll. Filled bread roll excellent, brie, pesto and tomato toasted.

Walked to Hisbe and picked up a few things.

V60 at Pelicano.

Time to catch a train, but instead walk back to the seafront via North Laine and The Laines.

The Pier closed, in darkness.

Hungry, maybe eat at Bom Banes in Kemptown. Full.

Back through North Laine and catch Gatwick Express to Gatwick.

Walking home, hard frost on the cars. Weather forecast for tonight, could go as low as minus six.
