#30days30testimonials - Day 23

This weekend was a big on check-ins, and I blame the sunshine :-)

We escaped St Albans once again, but this time headed for the train station to get to the seaside. Our destination was Brighton, with no advance research on possible locations to visit. Sunday was all about serendipity and Foursquare tips. 

All we did was grab a few items, put them in a bag and pocketed an iPhone and iPad.

By the time we arrived, breakfast was on our minds...

Seven Bees Café, Ship Street Gardens, Brighton - Café, and Coffee Shop @sevenbeescafe

You simply would not find this place, unless you knew where it was, or were given very good directions to find it. But who would look for the Seven Bees anyway? The name hardly rolls off the tongue does it?

Firing up my Foursquare app, we location searched for a café. Around 10 sprang out of the digital map and we quickly honed in on the ones directly between the train station, and the beach

Seven Bees Café was coloured yellow, which represents a special deal for the mayor. So we scanned this place first.

There were lots of really great tips and photos shared by past customers - and without checking any further, we marched towards the beach. 

After a short walk, we had to then take a leap of faith, and head down a very narrow and empty looking backstreet [Ship Street Gardens]. Our courage was rewarded when we stumbled upon the yellow front to the café.

Both Sammy and I ordered the Big Breakfast [it was tipped quite heavily on the app]. We were not disappointed. It was gorgeous!

Swilling it all down with a large mug of breakfast tea, we left as the café was getting rather busy and beginning to turn customers away. Not before I had chance to tweet about the event and leave a tip though!

A great place to visit and stop for breakfast if you fancy the hour and 3 quarters train journey down south.
