Husband and wife owners Dave and Kerri Rice are hoping to bring a fresh feel to the busy street, with a menu that has an array of bagel flavours and fillings - including Il Cappuccino’s popular Italian Stallion, but in bagel form.

Their coffee comes from an independent roasters in Brighton "Pelicano" - a favourite haunt of the couple during their time living in the city.

The cafe will focus on sustainable packaging, including compostable takeaway containers and glass bottles. Coffee grounds will be used for fertiliser.

Lost World Coffee Co. owners: Dave spent years travelling the planet in his former role as a music industry Merchandise Manager - visiting the high tech coffee labs of Amsterdam, sampling the phone box coffee in Brighton and taking advantage of the unlimited refills at the 24/7 diners in LA.

His musician wife Kerri, better known by her stage name Kerri Watt has enjoyed a decade long career playing her music on stages across Europe supporting the likes of Coldplay and Celine Dion. When the pandemic hit and the music industry ground to a halt, the idea for Lost World Coffee Co. was born - as well as the couple’s new baby who arrived the same week they took over the cafe.
