The Marwood Café
If Kitsch and Kitsch were to meet and have a baby, and that offspring were to regenerate into a Kitsch Brigade, that force might match the decor at The Marwood Café.
In keeping with Brighton’s long and proud counterculture tradition, the coffeehouse leaves no corner un-funkified.
What’s wonderfully weird? Pretty much everything – a table fashioned from an 80s video game, blinking fairy lights, walls and ceilings festooned with vintage action figures.
Settle into a mismatched chair for some of the strongest java in town. Order a cheese toastie made in a toaster from the 70s. For a pause from the retro pop-culture explosion, head out into the little known garden – really more of a yard with equally uncoordinated seating.
The Marwood Café, located at 52 Ship Street Court is a 15 minute walk from the hotel.
