Breakfasting in Brighton.

Just a heads up, Bubble Kitschen is now closed. WaiKikaMooKau, Iydea and Infinity Cafe are in the same area and are all open for breakfast.

This morning I woke up on my living room floor next to 3 of my best friends and a blow up guitar, this could only mean one thing, it was time to find a hangover cure!

For the purposes of Vegan MoFo I decided we should pass on our usual haunts (WaiKikaMooKau or the Infinity Cafe) and try somewhere new. We headed to Bubble Kitschen to check out their vegan breakfast options.

This quirky cafe isn't vegetarian but it does have a lot of vegetarian and vegan items on the menu. The vegan items are marked with two v's & include an English breakfast, a Mexican breakfast & beans or mushrooms on toast. They also have a large selection of freshly squeezed juices which you can add spirulina to if you're so inclined.

I decided to go for the English Breakfast because I thought I'd be able to rate it better next to other English Breakfast experiences.

The breakfast comes with fried potatoes, two Linda McCartney sausages (hidden under the beans!), fried mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, baked beans & a slice of toast. This is certainly the greasiest breakfast I've had in Brighton but sometimes that's just what you need! I loved the crispy fried potatoes, they're the perfect addition to an English breakfast and the fried mushrooms were delicious. Also whilst I prefer the homemade tofu sausages at Infinity Cafe I definitely enjoy a good Linda McCartney sausage and they're perfect with this breakfast. The only thing missing was veggie bacon but that was more than made up for by the fried potatoes. I'll definitely be returning to Bubble Kitschen & ordering this breakfast again.

One of my friends, the lovely Kip from Messy Vegetarian Cook, ordered the Mexican Breakfast which consists of a flour tortilla filled with refried beans, a Linda McCartney sausage, guacamole, salsa, fried potatoes and tofu scramble.

I didn't actually try this but it looks amazing right? It was also ridiculously large! The tofu scramble was made with silken tofu which is a bit unorthodox but it looked fantastic & I'll definitely be trying it one day.

I'm going to try to catch up on some MoFo blogs now & I'll be back tomorrow for Football Food Sunday. Go niners!

  1. Both of those look really good. I'm seriously considering going to Brighton VegFest in March, so I'll have to remember this place for breakfast (if I'm not in a food coma from the event)!

  13. I wouldn't mind eating any of these breaksfasts... I don't think I've ever had a breakfast of that type (greasy and abundant) in a restaurant... I would love that.
