A haven of quiet at Mr Wolfe Cafe – 15 Montpelier Place, Brighton, BN1 3BH
By Guest Blogger – Kate Bacon
Mr Wolfe Café on Montpelier Place (the confusing road that morphs from Upper North Street to Montpelier Place in Brighton, before turning into Lansdowne Road as it reaches Hove) is a new addition to a tiny row of shops consisting of lmnop (artist made and self published books and prints – http://www.lmnopshop.com/lmnop-about) and the take-away arm of Muraskai Bento (tasty Japanese food – http://www.murasakirestaurant.co.uk/).
I live round the corner and work started on the building last summer – so every time I walked past I peeked inside to see what this new business was going to be! The wait has been worth it and this tiny café is populated regularly with locals, including business owners taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings to work on their laptops.
The décor is charcoal grey, modern Danish furniture and the coolest low lighting I’ve seen in a while. The counter is a work of art and is filled with equally lovely home-made cakes, artisan bread (served as toast with jam), posh sarnies and bottled juices. Monmouth Coffee (and a good selection of locally sourced teas) are served in vintage cups and saucers (with gold detailing) by friendly staff.
It’s a haven of quiet only one block from Western Road – a great place to meet clients or work, taking advantage of the free wifi, sitting in the spring sunshine.
