5 stars if I could

Amazing pancakes. Super fluffy. The blueberry was lovely and went so well with the vegan bacon. Cute place too, nice to be able to sit in the garden

Well worth a visit

Great pancakes, with 4 different vegan options and a range of vegan cakes. I had the vegan intermediate pancakes, which came with vegan bacon - yum!

Lovely Breakfast

Lovely little cafe which was very busy when we went with limited indoor seating. Visited with friends, and ordered the Vegan Intermediate and a coffee. Service was a little slow due to being busy but the food was lovely and well priced. Would be a revisit in the future.

Love it here!

The menu is great - almost everything can be made vegan. I love the New Yorker bagel in particular.
I love the café decor, and really need to go in on a Friday wearing flares to get my 10% off.
Fave brunch spot in Brighton!

Best vegan bacon I’ve ever had!

This place really surprised me, the pancakes were heavenly and the bacon was the best vegan version I’ve had. Since going vegan, bacon has still made my mouth water and this made me so happy to get the flavor without eating an animal. Go try it!

Cant leave 5 stars because they offer non vegan options

Cant leave 5 stars as they also offer non vegan options. Seems a bit unfair! Brilliant cafe serving delicious vegan and gf pancakes and bagels and vegan milkshakes. Well worth a visit.

Pros: Amazing vegan pancakes , Amazing vegan bagels, Amazing vegan milkshakes

Cons: None

Pretty much the whole menu can be veganised so there is ample choice. I had a vanilla milkshake and the banana and chocolate pancakes, which were very nice and very filling. My only criticism is the pancakes were a little burnt/chewy on the bottom.

Great decor, and quick service. The place is small and on a Monday lunch was almost full, so if you want to visit at a busier time I’d recommend booking if possible.

Pros: Lots of options

Cons: Small restaurant , A bit expensive

Breakfast at Nowhere Man

Waited outside in a queue for 30 minutes with no word. Probably due to Covid measures or staggering orders but it would have been good to have been updated.
Vegan pancakes were nice but quite expensive for what you get. Scrambled tofu was the worst I’ve ever tasted. Bagels were fine.

Very tasty

Love the pancakes here it is so worth the money!! I’ve been a few times and often find the FOH staff to be a little bit rude / abrupt so that’s the only reason I gave 4 stars not 5 as they can sometimes make you feel bad or like you’re “bothering” them... but the food, wow!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Tasty , Cheap!

Cons: Staff a bit rude

Nice cafe but a shame we couldn’t eat here

This is a nice, small cafe and they serve a great vegan vanilla shake and coffee.

However we arrived at 4.15 and the kitchen was already shut (even though they close at 5.30) so we couldn’t order any food in the end, which was a shame.

We also felt the staff were a bit abrupt and not overly friendly either.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Delicious vegan pancakes

Vegan options available, I had the chocolate and banana pancakes. They also offer blueberry pancakes and can make anything on the menu vegan except for if pancakes have eggs and meat served with them.

Pros: The vegan pancakes are gluten free
