If there’s one thing that Brighton’s not short of it’s coffee shops, but in amongst all the usual chains there are a handful of independents to delight true coffee fans.

Mr Wolfe is a hidden gem tucked away in Montpelier Place, close to Seven Dials and stone’s throw from the madding crowds of Western Road.The coffee served is finest Monmouth and the baked goods are all handmade – orange blossom pistachio cake with mascarpone icing, anyone?Inside it’s quite compact, but like so many places in Brighton, particularly some of the flats in that area, the high ceilings provide a sense of space.

The fact that the owners, Travis and his wife, both have backgrounds in design is completely apparent from the moment you step inside: jet-black interior, a bespoke wooden counter top, chalk menu boards and a generous dose of vintage china. Even the café’s logo is an example of wonderfully executed design.

It’s a joy to find somewhere that offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of the Lanes, and with plenty of personality too.

A massive thanks to Travis and the team for being so lovely and allowing me take so many photographs – I’m still trying to silence my tummy rumbles from editing all the cake pics!

    This looks a delightful place and to see a flat white on the coffee board made me homesick for Wellington. Have been having dreadful coffee experiences since arriving for our visit here in the last couple of weeks :o(

      Sorry to hear you’ve had bad coffee experiences over here – there’s really no excuse for bad coffee! Hope you’re enjoying your Olympic visit – I’ve been keeping up with your exploits on Twitter 🙂
