Following the success of the bakery launch in Hove, GAIL’s opened its doors in the heart of Brighton earlier this year, bringing freshly baked sourdough and more to North Laine for the local residents and the city’s many visitors.
The décor represents local designers and reflects GAIL’s passion for sustainability. The reclaimed floor tiles are locally sourced and the large communal tables and chairs have been resourcefully designed using reclaimed and recycled materials by furniture designers that work within walking distance of the bakery. On the wall hangs a bespoke work of the Brighton Viaduct by Imogen Heath, a local artist.
GAIL’s range of loaves which are handmade daily, include sourdough baked using GAIL’s mother starter – a decades old source of yeast which helps the bread to rise and gives it the signature tangy flavour. GAIL’sserves its award-winning house blend coffee and a plethora of cakes and pastries. Come by for a satisfying breakfast pot, brunch, sandwich, salad or soup made using only the best ingredients from a close network of partners, carefully chosen for their commitment to great quality.Choose from the menu for a hearty and nutritious meal fresh from the kitchen, such as the delicious brioche French toast and sweetcorn pancakes.
In its typical community spirit, GAIL’s works with local charities by donating unsold food to be given to those in need. GAIL’s co-founder Tom Molnar says of the new opening ‘Brighton and Hove is an inspiring community that shares our passion for creativity and waste reduction. Now we have a bakery in both neighbourhoods, our love for this colourful city is ever-growing’.

ABOUT GAIL’s BAKERY
The GAIL’s Bakery story began in the early 1990s, when Gail Mejia and her bakers started serving London’s top restaurant chefs. In 2005, they opened their first neighbourhood bakery in Hampstead. Their aim is to make world-class craft bread a part of every community. They want to reinvent the way Londoners think about bread – fresh and handmade – and their neighbourhood bakery – local and beautiful.
