You really wouldn't want me in your kitchen: I don't so much cook food as inflict GBH on it (I once earned an ASBO for over-zealously mashing the spuds, but that's another story). However, I'm the first to pay homage to those whose skills with pots, pans and ingredients give us great mealtime pleasures.
Meet Terri Crombie, chef at Y THE COFFEE CO, 243 South Coast Road Peacehaven BN10 8LD, genius at delicious full English breakfasts and other tasty takeaway miracles. This cafe changed hands last year, and Terri not only welcomes you with a glowing smile the mask can't hide, but also gives you generous portions in traditional, veggie or vegan options – the plant-based sausages are unforgettable – served in cardboard bowls with wooden cutlery for eco-friendly takeaway dining.
Hours: 8 am to 4 pm, every day – YES! 7 days a week: AMAZING!!
Regulars like me can't wait for summer's later openings, so we can leisurely enjoy Terri's masterpieces in her garden.
Meantime, as well as ordering at the door, you can pre-order your takeaway, or request your home delivery, at
