With a site by the sea next to the West Pier and i360, a great place for a coffee and cake. Along with fresh sandwiches with great flavours. What better way to spend a lunchtime walk?
The other week during my lunchtime walk taking photos for a lens test I really fancied a fresh sandwich and coffee in the sun. So, we stopped off at The Flour Pot Bakery on Brighton Beach. First up was my sandwich, a Pastrami New Yorker. A lovely freshly baked focaccia roll with tender pastrami, Swiss cheese, and some leaves. The contents were tasty and good quality, but the bread-to-contents ratio was a bit high for my liking.
One treat that I didn't get time for on this trip was the "Brighton Blackout Cake". It's a chocolate overload with three layers of chocolate sponge, chocolate buttercream and a chocolate crumb sprinkled all over. It's like getting a hug in a cake. Perfect for some autumnal/winter energy.
Other treats on the menu are amazing sausage rolls, and a blue cheese danish. I often walk down to the Portland Road branch to pick one of these up for a mid-morning snack and coffee.
