It's just so pleasant
One of my favourite places in Brighton would probably be the Mad Hatter café on Western Road, just opposite Waitrose, on the corner of Montpelier Rd. For several reasons: the food’s nice, the coffee’s good and it has these marvellous open plan windows so everyone can see in and you can see out. It’s perfect to just sit there and people watch, chain smoke, wile away the day, read the papers, etc.. Plus you get a marvellous array of colourful characters walking down Western Road to sit and observe. It’s just pleasant, awfully pleasant.
