A Mini Food Guide For Brighton

Location: Brighton, England 

Before arriving in Brighton we had no idea how many amazing food places there were. If you are a foodie when it comes to exploring then Brighton is the place for you! Whether it is chocolate, cakes, ice cream or even cronuts you are after Brighton has it all! We always find that the best way to explore a place is by eating our way round. This was perfect in Brighton where there was a new more exciting food place everywhere we turned. Upon your visit you will soon find that Brighton is the best place to get lost and stumble across quirky ice cream parlours and hidden cake shops.

With a big city centre and a pretty stone beach the city's food offerings are perfect if your spending a day shopping or a day at the beach. The food offerings are so vast that you are bound to find something you love whatever the weather or craving!
As it was such a lovely sunny day when we visited Brighton our first food place had to be an ice cream parlour. Being a seaside city you are able to find ice cream parlours everywhere. However if you are looking for something out of the ordinary and want to taste some new amazing flavours then you need to head to Boho Gelato

1. Boho Gelato
The ice cream parlour offers at least 24 flavours at one time with a total of more than 150 in total. With two shops within the city you are bound to stumble across one to get yourself a delicious gelato. Both shops are located within the centre and are perfect walking distance from the beach. Although if you are planning to eat your ice cream on the beach then we would suggest getting your ice cream in a tub as it melts rather fast in the sunshine.

You can purchase your ice cream in either a tub, a cone or a chocolate cone. These come with 1, 2 or 3 scoops of ice cream of your choice. We went for 1 scoop in a tub - as you can see these scoops are rather large! ... and the flavours we chose were sea salt caramel and pink lemonade.

Tip:: if its a nice sunny day you should take your ice cream to the beach.
2. Choccywoccydoodah
In case you hadn't already guessed choccywoccydoodah is a chocolate shop. The shop sells all kinds of chocolate gifts and food items within their gift shop and their café. Located within the lanes the little chocolate shop is hidden away down a little pathway. Painted black on the outside you are not prepared for what is inside. As soon as you enter you are left speechless by the dark red walls and the abundance of chocolate in every direction.

Choccywoccydoodah in Brighton is the first of two stores. The other choccywoccydoodah store is located within London. After how amazing we found the Brighton store the London one is definitely on our bucket list.

We only purchased small chocolate bars due to it being such a hot day which would cause them to melt.

3. Dum Dum Donutterie
This was the most exciting of all the food places we visited while in Brighton - probably because it was unlike anything we have eaten before. The doughnut shop sells mini and normal size doughnuts, pastries and cronuts. Cronuts are a combination of doughnut and croissant mixed together. Although each item looked amazing we both went for different cronuts - after all we had never seen or had one before.

Displayed in a glass counter each of the treats look amazing. With clear names and an explanation of the doughnut filling the choice is pretty hard to make - after all they all sound so good!
We went for the strawberry crème cronut and the zebra cronut. As the cronuts are rather large we were able to get them halved so we could both try each cronut. This was perfect as both cronuts were really different. 

The strawberry creme cronut had a raspberry jam and vanilla butter creme filling and a vanilla creme topping with strawberries and drizzled chocolate. 

The zebra cornet had a chocolate butter creme filling between the chocolate pastry layers. With a topping of milk and white chocolate sprinkles.

4. Cloud Nine 
Cloud nine is a cupcake, brownie, milkshake, waffle and ice cream shop. Tucked away within the lanes the little shop stands out from the rest due to the pink exterior; bright coloured chairs and grass laid out. From the outside you can read what is for sale and see the delicious treats through the large window. 

The little shop sells a wide variety of treats with mouth watering flavours!
As the cupcakes looked so delicious we decided to go for them. Each cake was decorated uniquely depending on the flavours and placed in the appropriate case. Although every cake looked amazing we went for just the one each. 

The menu for cloud nine appears on the wall where you can clearly see what is for sale and for how much. However the flavours of the treats change daily so you would need to look in the counters to make your decision. 
We went for a vanilla cupcake and a red velvet cupcake!
