Top five fry up joints in Brighton

When it comes to fry ups, everybody's got an opinion. As you've looked forward to it all week you don't want to be let down.

*We’ve given a few local Brighton establishments a real grilling and here is the pick of our top 5:*

*1.) Necot, George’s Rd, Brighton*

Necot stands for ‘not everyone’s cup of tea’ but the Necot breakfast couldn’t be further from the truth. It caters for all tastes: vegetarian and carnivores alike. Plus, there are the light and big breakfasts available depending on how hungry you are. The finest ingredients are grilled to perfection so it’s grease free meaning you don’t have to feel guilty about this one. Hash browns, two free range eggs (poached, fried or scrambled), baked beans, crispy bacon and seeded/rye bread ( from Lewes, baked in Glyne), tomatoes and mushrooms all add up to create one great taste sensation. Coffee connoisseurs will not be disappointed; made with high quality Brazilian coffee beans, it tastes great. £7.95.

*2.) Bills, The Depot, 100 N Rd, Brighton*

Bills is one of those places you’ve got to try at least once. Bills is Brighton to a tee - high quality, fresh ingredients are served up in a funky setting ; low lighting and big wooden benches make this a must visit for friends and family. Cumberland sausage, fried free range eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, smoked streaky bacon and toast are all knockout; the only down side is the portions are on the smaller side and you have to pay an extra £1 to add baked beans and £1.50 to add bubble and squeak (both are a must). The veggie version is unorthodox but surprisingly it works: poached free range eggs, tomatoes, hummus, mushrooms and guacamole, sweet chilli sauce and basil and toast mean that the veggie option isn’t humdrum anymore. Bill’s breakfast £7.95, vegetarian option £7.95.

*3.) Kensington’s, Kensington Gardens, Brighton*

The student’s favourite: Kensington’s offers great a great value fry up that’s guaranteed to set you up for the day ahead. Placed in the heart of the South Lanes, this atmospheric student haunt serves good old greasy spoon classics in Bohemian surroundings. The menu here is vast- you can have your eggs poached, fried or scrambled plus beans, toast, sausage, bacon - pick and choose any combination of the full breakfast (plus veggie options). It’s very much a builder’s breakfast : portions are huge (especially the big Meat) and the tea’s served in thick mugs. Wooden booths provide the seating and in summer there’s a small balcony overlooking the Brighton lanes - the only downside is you might have to wait for a table. It’s not fine dining but it’s a top fry up in a lively setting and great value. The big meat £7.45, Veggie breakfast £7.45.

*4.) The Courtyard, 20 New Rd Brighton,*

Bring the outside in at the Courtyard, an English garden meets down town Paris. Spotlights and faux foliage give it a really unique feel. Bordering the South lanes and the pavilion gardens, it’s the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by. The Courtyard Full English consists of quality farmhouse sausage, 2 rashers of thick cut bacon, 2 free range fried eggs, grilled mushroom and tomato, baked beans, doorstep white/brown buttered toast (with real butter). The veggie has all the same except no bacon and veggie sausage. You can add extra grilled tomatoes or mushrooms for £2 or you can go for two eggs (served however you like) with two rashers of bacon on chunky white or brown buttered toast. The coffee is ground and exceptional. £7.95 full English, £6.95 veggie option.

*5.) Ethel’s Kitchen, Blatchington Rd, Hove*

Named after the proprietor’s grandma, Ethel’s takes you back in time. Quaint and vintage, Ethel’s offers you “Good food” with “no fuss” in their own words. It has a real family feel and all ages are made to feel really welcome. It comes with all your favourites - the local, home-made beef and mustard sausage fry up is delicious and comes with toast, two organic eggs which come fried, scrambled or poached . You’ll also get served up mushrooms cooked in tarragon butter, roasted cherry tomatoes- plus the home made speciality, the mini potato rosti, which adds a real garlicky kick to this breakfast and is the perfect accompaniment to the beans. The vegetarian option is the same but with two vegetarian sausages. The only downside? No bacon - but it’s so nice you don’t notice until afterwards. You may think that china tea cups and loose leaf tea may belong to a bygone era but they really DO make the tea taste better. This is perfect if you fancy a fry up but still want an experience. Sausage fry up £8.20 (extra sausage £1), Veggie option £7.95.
