Why we love it

There are few more pleasant ways to spend an afternoon (or morning) than on the sun-trap roof terrace at Rust in Hove. Even if the sun isn’t shining, this welcoming café is a favourite for brunch and lunch. If you’re there for the former - try the chorizo, or haloumi, with poached eggs - or the wonderfully fresh smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toast. The portions are big at Rust, with the jacket potato packing a noteworthy punch. If you’re looking for a slightly lighter (although still generous) option, the salad platter offers a selection of the day’s offerings, plus halloumi, hummus and pita bread – delicious and smug-makingly healthy.

Beautiful venue and friendly staff. Loved the upstairs outdoor dining area.


Lovely cafe with great food. Great to sit outside


Brilliant cafe, great cakes (to die for) and good service.


Amazing roof terrace garden to enjoy drinks in! Cake was delicious.


Very easy to claim, my first time so didn’t know where to find the code but staff were helpful and patient!


Gorgeous space, gorgeous food and wonderful service! I went in to cafe rust at about 1pm and ordered the veggie breakfast, they were very busy but all the staff were smiling. Upstairs has the most beautiful terrace, get up there if you can! A lovely spot you could easily spend hours in, I will be back!
