Who or what was the inspiration behind your name ‘Little Bird?’
We were living in the French Alps and hung around with this amazing designer and motorcycle builder. Over a glass or two of wine we were fooling around with some ‘voodoo branding’ for a company that doesn’t exist. It’s about the relationship between words, ‘Little’ and ‘Bird’ work really well together. The logo is a reworking of a small 1920’s motocycle company.
Your cakes get A LOT of attention, and in my opinion are up there with the best in Brighton, are these homemade? Tell us all about your wonderful cakes.
Yes! Possibly the most photographed cakes in town. These fabulous creations are all freshly homebaked. We have a large array of flavours to tantilise tastebuds of all shapes and sizes, from classic Victoria Sponge and Lemon Drizzle to the wonderful Rhubarb and Ginger or Courgette and Lime. We also have gluten free and vegan choices available.
What else is on the menu other than your delicious cakes, coffees and teas?
Little Bird isn’t all about cake and coffee. We also have a lunch menu available 7 days a week. Artisan sandwiches and lovingly homemade soup. And now that the sun and warmth is making an appearance, keep a close look out for the return of our popular tapas boards, salads and smoothies. Also on the cards in the very near future; breakfasts and outside catering for offices and parties.
I’m on the hunt for Brighton’s best Cafe, what makes Little Bird special?
We’re true to everything we do, this place is everything we think a cafe should be; not brash or corporate, just stylish and well put together. We strive for good ingredients with a rustic and artisan feel. We are without a doubt one of the smallest cafés in town, but the best things come in small packages!
