Where's the best place to get a fry-up in Lewes, now that the Nevill Road cafe has gone?
Please don't say Bills, or my faith in fellow humans may be lost altogether.

One of my favourite Viva Lewes moments was when a woman said that for breakfast she had "Steamed chicory and quinoa". I suppose the market for a good old full English is being replaced by the quiona brigade.

I don't understand what people have against Bills. I regularly used his cafe in Chiswick so imagine my delight in finding one in Lewes too.

Anyone who says Bills and Laportes should be bound and gagged, DFL branded on their backside and transported back to London from whence they came

Fry ups are in the same category as roast dinner, always best done at home. Personally I like to make my own baked beans from scratch.

You can't beat black pudding and poached eggs on toast to my mind, sausages are too much at breakfast time to my mind.

Top of station st I haven't tried. pj's is it, same people that run the runaway?
I remember the volly doing a fry up for a while, don't know if it's still on?
I've no idea what steamed chicory and quinoa tastes like, but it sounds like something I'd put on the bird table.

@ Lewes Ian. I'm not that bothered by Bills, but whats wrong with Laportes??

There is nowhere in Lewes that does a decent full English. Riverside Café tries but fails miserably on price and tortoise like service.
Macs Cafe in Brighton do a proper job at reasonable cost.

Izzy: The Lewes Bill's was the original. The owner had clearly kept his flood insurance up-to-date, as post the 2000 floods a slightly more than basic greengrocer's was tranformed when it re-opened. However, too many people in Lewes have younger family members who have worked there or whose friends worked there. We know of far too many examples of suspect behaviour and poor management style for long-term Lewes residents to have any affection or respect for the place.
I understand the original owner sold the store ro a chain.and no longer takes any part in the business.

Come on Meic, dish the dirt. What sort of suspect behaviour and poor management style - naming no names of course!

My daughter worked there whilst still at school. In those days it was a greengrocery with some interesting twiddly bits - especially the quiche.

Steamed chicory btw? Everyone knows the best way to cook chicory is to braised it with fresh orange juice.

I know it's not Lewes but if you are ever around in Newhaven then Fanny Lulu's by the level crossing is the place to go .Forget posh as it's more of a transport cafe but a great fry up and very reasonably priced too.

is Ringmer cafe, after a walk my kids love nothing better than the sharing plate. 3 sausage,3 bacon, 2 eggs, beans,mushrooms,tomatoes,chips, 2 hash browns and 2 toast. Yum. Then is walking it off on the way home. Win win.

That's exactly what I'm looking for, thank you. I've had plenty of reasonably priced fanny in newhaven before but none that sounds so tasty.
As for anyone that recommended le magasin, thanks for your comments but I am looking for a greasy spoon with a heart and soul - nothing refined, just great food and price. That's what the Nevill road cafe was.

The problem with a lot of greasy spoon cafes is that they use very cheap bacon and sausage - stuff I wouldn't feed to my dog.
There was a greasy spoon near London Bridge I went to a few years ago. Can't remember the name, but it was very popular with cabbies. It was proper greasy spoon but you could tell they didn't stint on the bacon and the sausage was proper butcher's stuff.
