After three fabulous years the Pelican will be closing its doors for the last time this coming Friday the 4th of August at 3pm. It’s been an amazing time and we’ve loved being a part of the wonderful community here in West Hove. In the time we’ve been open the Portland Road has changed and developed so much and we’ve loved providing a big child-friendly café for all the local residents.

However we too now need to change and adapt.

Opening later this summer in the Pelican’s place will be a new café, with a bigger selection of hireable rooms at the back and a thoroughly revamped and improved café at the front.

We’re very pleased to say that Studio 211 Therapies will remain in our hire space upstairs.

We’d like to thank all our wonderful customers for their loyalty over the last three years. We hope to see lots of you back in our new café later this summer.

Welcome to the Pelican on Portland, the biggest & best child friendly café in Hove!

We’ve got great coffee from Roasted served by barista-trained staff, with delicious freshly baked cakes and fabulous food.

Sit up at the front of the café for our quieter grown-up friendly tables and sofas, ideal for those work from home days or catching up with a friend.  Or visit our large child-friendly space at the back,freshly revamped with lots of new toys for the kids.  There’s plenty of room for buggies and highchairs for the babies too.

The Pelican is available to hire for evenings, birthday parties, showcases and events. For any enquiries please contact pelicanonportland@gmail.com


Opening Hours:

Monday to Friday – 8am – 3pm

Saturday – 9am – 3pm

Sunday – Closed

We hope to see you soon!
