Flinders Coffee

Since starting the blog one coffee shop has been recommended to me time and time again: from friends, from Facebook groups, from The Parent Hood and from Gemma, founder and owner of Mutha.Hood in their Six at 6pm interviews. And the same 2 things come up time and time again: the best Sussex Charmer (cheese)…

Six at 6pm with… Katie (hello, it’s me!) from Sussex Born & Fed

So, this evening, I thought it would be fun to do my own Six at 6pm. Partly because I haven’t managed to interview anyone for this week; partly because I reckon you shouldn’t ask any questions that you wouldn’t answer yourself. So for one week only, here I am, the star of my own show:…

Cafes With Something for Everyone – Mid Sussex

I ran a Facebook poll last week asking whether I should write up a guide to buggy friendly cafes or a guide about cafes with something for everyone. The margin was pretty slim and Something for Everyone narrowly won. These cafes are the places you can retreat to as a parent safe in the knowledge…

Bread & Milk Cafe, Brighton

We ended up in Bread & Milk on Saturday for lunch. We hadn’t planned to, but the heady combination of family hanger and a child desperate for a wee led us straight into the arms of an old favourite. I love this cafe. I’m not sure how long it’s been around but it must have…

Isaac At

It’s rare for us to have a night off from the girls. So, when we do, we make the effort to go somewhere really nice for dinner. The girls had a sleepover at the Grandparents on Saturday; with the freedom to do as we pleased we decided to try out Isaac At. And boy am…

Old Dave’s Gourmet Burger Co.

Old Dave’s Gourmet Burger Co in Eastbourne is a total find – it’s laid back, the food is delicious and it’s super family-friendly with something for everyone. We were in Eastbourne last Sunday for The Sooty Show. It was at a slightly awkward time given that we’re a 45 minute drive away and need to…

We’ve been frequent diners at all 4 over the past 12, maybe even 13 years. We got engaged in the Gingerman in…
