Bills, Brighton, UK

Bills is an institution in Brighton (and the other locations it resides in). The food is excellent, waiting 30 minutes to get a table for breakfast is well worth it. The milkshakes are far too good for my health and the eggs Benedict rocks my world. Having drunk coffee there before I knew it was well made but it had not had a proper review, this time I tried a take away.

It was quite a large mug that I was handed with but it smelt pleasant so I reserved judgement. By the time I reached work it had cooled sufficiently to be drunk fast. It was still strong despite the size but immediately I new it was good as it was so smooth. The taste was not revolutionary and it could have been shorter and therefore stronger but there were no real complaints to be had about this cup of Joe.

  • Black Americano
  • Strong
  • Nice and smooth
  • Low Crema
  • Large mug
  • £1.50 

A little on the big side but a good solid coffee without a doubt.


  1. love your coffee blog, but sorry have to disagree about Bills for coffee, great food, but weak insipid coffee.

    Best coffee I have found so far is Spinellis and Coffee33.

    Sending esspresso love

  2. Thanks for the comment Jan. I hope to always get some conversation going about what is good and what is not.
    Coffee@33 I rave about.
    From your tip - I'm about to post my Spinellis review.
