A Traditional Taste of Britain at Brighton’s Little Miss Piggies
Tuck into a traditional taste of Britain at pork-lovers paradise, Little Miss Piggies!
Nestled amongst the record shops, boutiques and trendy pubs of St James’s Street sits the inviting yellow doorway of Little Miss Piggies. The independent, family-run cafe has a friendly, local atmosphere and serves up traditional British breakfasts, brunches and snacks seven days a week.
If you’re looking for a cute breakfast spot, they have it all: from wholesome porridge and guilt-free granola, to a classic fry-up that promises to cure any hangover! Feeling peckish during the day? Try the Pulled Pork Bap or build your own. The brunch and snack menu offers British classics at affordable prices, as well as veggie options. If you’re bringing little ones along, they won’t be disappointed with the crowd-pleasing children’s menu – perfect for a family meal that doesn’t break the bank.
The intimate size of the cafe allows all the food to be made fresh to order, and they are happy to accommodate requests ‘off menu’ if you want to get creative with your meal. If you fancy something else after your meal, kick back with a Cappuccino, Iced Coffee, or a luxurious Hot Chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows. If you’re in a rush, grab your meal to take-away. Using expertise gained over years of cooking for a big family, Little Miss Piggies serves honest home-cooked food that your mum would be proud of.
The interior of the cafe lives up to its sunny exterior: it is bright and inviting, with walls covered in beautiful baroque wallpaper, vintage photos of Brighton throughout the ages, and an original illustration of Little Miss Piggies. Newspapers are laid out on the charming wooden tables so that customers can take their time, sit back and soak up the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The large windows create a perfect space for people-watching. Customers can curl up and watch the comings and goings of local life in vibrant Kemptown. Outdoor seating at the front of the cafe is perfect for eating al fresco on a sunny day in St James Street.
As you enter the cafe, an encouraging sign declares that ‘proper English food’ is served within and we sat down, eager to see if they could live up to their promise. Our bangers and mash came quickly, and was beautifully presented. Everything on the first plate was bang on, from the high-quality bangers, to the mound of creamy mashed potato and juicy broccoli. The meal was accompanied by a jug of gravy which was thick and full of flavour, and generous enough to satisfy the most devoted gravy fan.
The friendly staff were very attentive, checking back to make sure we were happy with our more than generously portioned food, and making sure that we were well looked after throughout.
If you are struggling to find an affordable meal among the huge array of trendy-but-expensive eateries in Brighton, Little Miss Piggies is the perfect antidote. Unpretentious and serving honest food at honest prices, you’ll feel instantly at home. We’ll be coming back soon to tackle The Breakfast Challenge!
