Côte, Brighton, UK

Sitting opposite the Brighton done is a grand old municipal building. It was recently the most exciting art venue in town where are was hung or put straight on the walls, the decaying elegance still shinning through. That faded wonder has been brought back to life as the newly refurbished Côte and perhaps it is close to the former glories it held.
The Neoclassic façade is painted the darkest green and combined with the low slung awnings it has a rich and heavy set look. Perhaps this is reflected in the food, but was is reflected in the coffee? Styling itself as a French Bistro serving food all day it has to be trialled.

The coffee came in a small cup and held a pleasant aroma with a light scattering of crema. The taste was good, rich but not burnt. There was perhaps a slight bitterness at first which gave way to a creamy sweetness.

  • Black Americano
  • Strong
  • Smooth and rich, full of flavour
  • A tinge of bitterness followed by sweetened cream
  • Light Crema
  • Small cup
  • £1.95

French coffee as it should be. Well worth regular patronage.
