The Meeting Place Cafe – Where Happiness Gathers by Brighton Beach

Situated on the boundary that used to separate Brighton and Hove before they were unified into one city sits an excellent Open-Air Café known as the Meeting Place Cafe. Perhaps the name is symbolic, or maybe it is simply the perfect place for you to meet your friends and grab a bite right on Brighton Beach.

I have created a super helpful bespoke Google map for all the essentials you need, not only when on Brighton beach, but when organising a great day trip to Brighton beach as well. Set yourself up for a stress-free day trip and save some pennies in the process.

The Meeting Place Cafe on Brighton Beach, UK

The Meeting Place Café is open 365 days of the year, or at least they are open every day that the weather conditions allow it. Their outdoor seating area is right on the Brighton and Hove promenade boundary and directly in front of the pebbled beach. 

The seating area is shelters with umbrellas in places and even a windshield for the more breezy days. The Meeting Place Café can seat up to 150 people if needs be, and it often does.

On the one hand, you could say it’s located in the middle of nowhere, located by the sea in the middle of Brighton city coastline. But then, and more poignantly. You can also say that all roads and boundaries lead to it too.

The Meeting Place Cafe is located at the western edge of Brighton Promenade and situated at the eastern edge of the Hove Promenade. 

For, here at this cafes point, the two old towns of Brighton and Hove have their divide. 

Its boundary starts from the Meeting Point cafe and snakes its way up to Western Street, Norfolk Terrace, toward Seven Dials. Making it the best location for a meeting point and a name well deserved.

Now that Brighton and Hove are joined in city status, The Meeting point is well and truly located in the heart of the Brighton coastline and Brightonians hearts.

For this is just what it calls itself. It is an excellent middle ground to meet friends to chat, with good hot coffee and a beach view to boot.
