I wasn't really intending to write a blog post about my lunch in Brighton this weekend but I was taken quite by surprise by the wonderful little cafe/ restaurant that Nick had found to take his mum. We'd researched places in Brighton which were coeliac friendly (Coeliac disease is a serious allergy to gluten and wheat, this means no bread, pasta, flour, thickeners)

Food for friends is one of Brightons original vegetarian restaurants nestled in the historic Lanes of Brighton, perfect for lunch. The menu consisted of fresh, original, inventive food, with clearly marked vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. A contemporary, casual cafe,  it wasn't like they were trying very hard to be gluten free or vegetarian, the food was just simply was.
Nicks Thai red pumpkin curry and his mums spiced carrot and parsnip rosti were 2 of the gluten free options, as well as my to die for molten chocolate pudding (pictured below).

Spiced parsnip soup

Butternut, parmesan and applewood risotto fritters with roasted lemon tahini aubergine, and marinated artichoke served with basil infused olive oil and shaved pecorino and rocket salad

 Molten chocolate pudding with Baileys ice cream

Whether you're vegetarian, vegan, require a gluten free option, or are just in the area and looking for a nice lunch or dinner its delicious food, a varied menu and a lovely spot to sit and watch the world go by.
Prices for lunch were pretty reasonable,  £5 - £7 pounds for a starter or dessert, under £15 for a main.

Oooh...lovely food. I really like that molten chocolate pudding with the Bailey's ice cream. That must be a powerful combo!
