Brunch at Old Port, Hove – Review
Brunch is probably one of my favourite meals of the day. Recently a new spot opened up just down the road from our house so obviously we had to go and check it out. The Old Port is situated next door to the Stoneham Pub on Portland Road. At night it is a cocktail bar, but they have recently opened it up as a breakfast house in the mornings. Opening every day at 8am they offer drinks, food and pastries.
We went along last weekend with some friends, and although it’s not that big they moved a few tables around to fit us in. The Old Port also offers a kids menu which is great. Especially as there are a lot of families in the local area. I decided to go for the pancakes with berries and yoghurt. Jesse went for the veggie corker which included beans, halloumi, poached egg, mushrooms and avocado. Our little girl picked the beans on toast which came on sourdough bread. Our friends went for the veggie corker and the vegan corker. Although we all opted for the veggie or vegan breakfasts they also offer meaty ones as well. I could have had bacon and maple syrup with my pancakes, however I prefer mine sweeter.
All of the food looked and tasted amazing when it arrived. The coffee is from small batch which is always good. It’s also nice to see them supporting another local business. The kitchen is run by Tisburys Kitchen who also provide food at a few other places around Brighton. As well as coffee the drinks menu had various teas, hot chocolates, smoothies and milkshakes on. Next time we go I will definitely be trying a milkshake.
If you in the West Hove/Poets Corner part of Hove then you should definitely pay The Old Port a visit. Even if you aren’t it’s worth a visit because the breakfasts really are that good.
We weren’t asked to do this review and we paid for our own meal. I just wanted to share a great place for a family breakfast.
