London - Brighton - The Lanes

We wandered from the Royal Pavilion toward The Lanes, a series of quaint, narrow shopping streets.  I admired the juxtaposition of old and new architecture on the way.
We took stock of the time at the gilded clock tower at a nearby intersection.
More street art popped along the gritty sidewalks.
We wound our way deeper into The Lanes and discovered Marwood Coffee Shop.  A tantalizing anvil hinted at what might be in store inside.
We were confronted by an amazing assortment of campy and kitsch decorations.
The cakes looked enticing.
Alas, Marwood turned out to be a fussy sort of coffee place that refused to serve low fat or skim milk in their espresso drinks. We decided to move on without ordering anything.  We were disappointed of course but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise for we discovered Angel Food Bakery.
I knew this place was bound to be good when I spotted the peanut butter whoopie pies on the counter.

We further perused the offerings...
...and decided on a coffee cupcake with Crunchie bar on top.
So delicious!
We noticed a print on the wall from Charles Rennie Mackintosh and thought back to our time spent in Glasgow.
We knew we had officially arrived in The Lanes when we saw The Lanes Traders Arch.
Amid the winding shopping streets, we ducked through a small passage and into a bright courtyard of cafes.  It was quite the popular place on a Saturday afternoon.
Our final stop was the Pump House.
Decorated on the inside with warm dark wood, it was a cozy retreat from the world outside.
We ordered a couple of British Ales - always a tasty treat but I wish they were colder.  It's part of the experience to drink warm beer in Britain so we just went with it.
Down the hatch!
