5/5

It’s not very often that a brunch absolutely blows us away, but the kind folk at Treacle & Ginger have managed it, delivering in spades great hospitality, the biggest brunch selection we’ve seen on a menu yet, and super reasonable prices (especially for Hove!).

Treacle & ginger brunch review

Owner Lisa is an absolute powerhouse, and so welcoming of patrons to her cafe it’s difficult to believe she’s only had it for 18 months… It really feels like this little spot in Hove was made for her.

The space is creative yet comfortable; recycled milk cartons take the shape of lampshades creating a warm glow throughout, while local art adorns the walls. There’s so much attention to detail – even the mugs are beautifully made by an artisan ceramicist.

The notion of comfort extends all the way to the menu too, as items like a mug of soup served with cheese on toast ooze simple indulgence, offering Treacle & Ginger up as an ideal brunch spot whether you want somewhere to catch up with friends, take your mum, or curl up with a good book for an hour on a rainy day.

It may be a little way out of town for the regular Brightonian, but this little brunch stop is well worth the trip, and has quickly become a solid fave.
