Portsmouth is blessed to be a coffee shop mecca on the south coast. There’s tons of beautiful independent coffee shops spread out sporadically throughout the graffiti lined streets of Southsea.
A while ago I found Home Coffee, a gorgeous understated little place near the start of Albert Road in Southsea. And, its name does it justice, it feels like you’re at home.
This place oozes cosy coffee shop vibes. I love people watching and spending slow mornings reading, writing and drinking coffee. And, this is the place to do it!
People pop in and out for takeaways, there are other people pottering about their mornings and there’s the perfect window seat to watch the world go by.
Here’s a look at Home Coffee…

ᵃᵈ Portsmouth’s warehouse street food venue has been a total hit since it opened last year. It’s a favourite of mine because of its chilled dining vibes, fantastic food and great entertainment.
Outside-In regularly changes up its independent street food vendors and there’s some new offerings added into the eclectic mix to try.
I was invited to review the food court and it laid on what can only be described as an epic feast!
If you’re in the city and looking for something that’s a little different, you need to head here, take a look why…

17You change your mind, like a girl changes clothes…
For the ever indecisive of us, and yes I class myself within this group, bottomless tacos, where you can pick any of and as many of the tacos as you like, is the DREAM!
And, that’s where Bonita’s Southsea steps in with it’s Taco Tuesday offer – it corners the market and conquers it. Actually it stamps all over the competition unapologetically while telling you you’re pretty and feeding you tacos.
Bonita’s has landed bringing its own blend of fusion Mexican food, humorous cocktails and Beyonce Brunches to the South Coast.
Heading to Portsmouth? You’re going to want to check this restaurant out because those tacos are hella-good!
And, don’t forget your camera because, Bonita’s is as pretty as a picture and you’re going to want to put it on your Instagram…

Take a look at one of my favourite spots in the south… Continue reading “Brunch by the sea at Southsea Beach Cafe”
AD | Whoop-whoop! It’s the sound of the BEEEEEFFFFFF!
This is most definitely a public service announcement for those of you looking for a place to eat in Portsmouth.
Hubbox has thrown open its doors at new digs at Gunwharf Quays bringing amazing Cornish produce and charm to my sunny corner of Hampshire.
It’s won accolade after accolade and been on my foodie hit list for a while.
I was chuffed when the kind folk at Hubbox invited* me to its newest restaurant to try those famous dirty fries out.
Take a look at the dishes I picked from the menu, which is filled with award-winning epic big eats. If you like American street food this one is going to be a piece of you…
THIS. This is how you do doughnuts and coffee. Unique sweet treats, super strength caffeine and a beautiful aesthetic. Hideout Coffee Company has it all.
The doughnuts are out of this world. Go now and go early, they sell out so quickly so, do not go unprepared!
I visited after it had been open for six days, and it’s been selling out every single day. For a very good reason too, those doughnuts are AMAZING.
And yes, they are ‘The Finest Coffee Perverts’ in Portsmouth!

Becketts is the restaurant in Southsea that’s been recommended to me over and over again. It’s been a Portsmouth staple for the last 30 years but came under new management in 2016 and is thriving in the city’s vibrant food scene.
It has an excellent reputation and now I’ve finally managed to visit I totally understand the hype.
