For a relaxing weekday breakfast, lunch, light snack or hot drink, Bright Now Café is the perfect location, just a couple of minutes from both the city centre and Brighton Station. Serving reasonably priced good quality food and drink, locally sourced where possible and freshly made on site, Bright Now Café is one of Brighton's best kept secrets. Equally great for a quiet business meeting or social lunch with friends. With free WiFi.

We have just launched a tantalising new menu, packed with a diverse range of flavours.

Freshly baked bread from Real Patisserie, locally sourced seasonal vegetables and butcher's meat are what our superb kitchen team has to offer.

Each week brings new specials and a wide selection of baked cakes and pastries, prepared in house, for you to enjoy.

There are a number of great drinks, hot and cold, to choose from including our expertly made coffee, using fair trade roasted beans as well as matcha and spicy chai lattes.

All are welcome any time of the day to sit and relax within the calm, friendly atmosphere at the Bright Now Café, maintained by an attentive and enthusiastic team.

Opening Times

Mon - Fri: 8:30am - 4:00pm
