That would be awesome! Originally I was going to visit friends in Brighton after a friend's 50th in Southampton but they're away on holidays and I only found out after booking the train tickets, so I'm going to have a bit of free time to spare! Are you about Tuesday anytime or Wednesday daytime?

WaiKikaMooKau have added vegan cheese (VioLife) to their menu. It's not on the printed menu yet (it's super new) but just ask. I'm excited about getting myself a cheeseburger!

Are there any places in Brighton that sell soy curls? A friend of mine is heading that way at the weekend and I just wanted to check if I could send him on a mission for impossible-to-find vegan food that we can't get in Wales.

We were planning on going down for Vegfest but it turns out that weekend isn't good for us, so we are now going the weekend after (easter) Sunday-wednesday.

From what I've been reading, parking in Brighton is ridiculously expensive yes? All the NCPs seem to cost a lot! Hopefully we can park at the hotel and walk...

Is everything likely to be shut on the bank holidays (Sunday and Monday)?

A lot of hotels don't have parking either I'm afraid (or it's an NCP or ridiculously tiny) so it's probably best to budget for parking too.

Everything won't be shut over Easter weekend but Infinity Foods will be closed on Sunday & will have reduced hours on the Monday. I think most restaurants & cafe's will be open both days but it's probably worth making a reservation if you wanted to go to Terre à Terre or Food for Friends. Also driving into Brighton on Easter Sunday will take a good hour longer than Google maps suggests and you'll want to get there as early as possible to get a spot on a car park. NCP wise they're all stupidly expensive but I think the London Road one was cheapest last time I checked. If you want to try to park on the street you'll need to go out to the Hannover area. Oh and definitely call your hotel to ask where they'd suggest you park.

On the upside, if you're there over Easter weekend, you'll see all the Mods bikes on the seafront.

Wow thanks jojo! We are staying at the travelodge near the train station and they've told us they have parking but it's limited so, who knows. We are definitely budgeting enough to spend extra on that.

Ruby Rose - that sounds cool even though I'm not quite sure what it is. Is there an event happening?

You could always drop off your stuff at the hotel then drive back and park on the unrestricted streets around Preston Park or Hanover area - just walk back (you could take in Al Campo, Hisbe, The Level, Loving Hut on your way on foot) or get the bus or train - or actually if there's two of you the cab fare might work out similar to the bus/train fare x2.

A lot of central Brighton closes at 5.30pm but wander across Old Steine/Palace Pier to St James Street in Kemptown and you'll find the cafes (and some shops) are open later.

If you're not using the car over the weekend and want to save on parking, consider parking it in Portslade and get the train in! Only takes a couple of minutes, 2.50 single or so. We live in Portslade, so know the area isn't bad!

Morelli Zorelli now have a range of vegan mock meats as well as vegan cheese. Our group had pepperoni, choritzo and chicken. They are working on a vegan menu but in the meantime ask and they'll tell you what they have, they're very accommodating. They even knocked us up some garlic bread which they hadn't done vegan style before!

There are only a few tables (we rang ahead as there were 4 of us) and although they have vegan beer (Peroni & Birra Moretti) there isn't any vegan wine at the moment. I'm sure if there is demand they will look into this, apparently we were the first people who had asked about wine. They also had Fentimans soft drinks.

We are back from Brighton, I have to say they're were a couple places that stood out as great and a couple that weren't so great.

We first tried to go to the Almond Tree on Monday morning as it was relatively close to the hotel, and they had made a post on facebook saying they were opening at 8 that day. We got their at 9 and it was shut up tight. We tried again Wednesday morning when it was open, but we got put off because the lady running the place kept coughing on the cake places and moaning about her "big cold" - didn't fancy breakfast there after that.

We had breakfast both days at Wai Kika Moo Kau instead and it was great! The service was excellent as was the food so I was really pleased with that.

We found everywhere super busy at lunchtime so decided to get a takeout panini from Infinity foods cafe, but it didn't work out so well. My husbands was great but after they had had my panini in the machine a while, one of them told the other that the machine mine wasn't in was not actually working. Soooo they just gave me a squished cold sandwich. I wouldn't have minded if they'd actually mentioned it and apologised but they acted like we wouldn't know the difference.

The other good experience we had was with Morelli Zorelli, we got pizza delivered to the hotel and mine had vegan pepperoni and chorizo on and was delicious! And it got delivered very quickly, I'm not sure how the pizza guy managed it, but I'm sad now we have nothing like that here!

I've never been impressed with the Infinity Cafe, such a shame given the parent company!
