Stephanie explained how she and Pat Dungey formulated the anthology and then read some examples from both of their work. Afterwards there was a general discussion and a rush to purchase copies of the book, and to order more tea and cakes. So many thanks to all at Diva for such a warm welcome and for creating a memorable experience. Me and my partner visited while on a overnight break. The decor was great and the owner was very friendly and gave such a personal service.
If u are in the area I would recommend popping in. This extremely homely cafe has become a regular haunt for me. The coffee in my opinion is the best in Brighton. I drink America double shot with a splash of cold milk. Today I had to eat her Rnglish Ploughmans. Very much the owners style. Delicious and plentiful with several extras to spice up the cheese.
