Supporting local businesses – Lucky Beach Brighton
Lucky Beach are members of the Sustainable Restaurant Association and as such, work to reduce their footprint to an absolute minimum whilst supporting local farmers and small businesses. For example, all of the fish used at Lucky Beach is sourced from BNFS (Brighton & Newhaven Fish Sales). This is a sustainable wholesale fish supplier based on the South coast that catch local fish and seafood. The Sussex meat served at Lucky Beach is from Goodwood Home Farm which is 100% organic. And for a drink, Brighton’s very own Bison Beer Crafthouse has created an APA speciality, naming it the ‘Lucky Beach.’
Ready for whatever the weather decides!
Inside the fisherman’s arch, the cafe is set up for the days when the British weather is not at its finest, but when the sun comes out you’ll have plenty of space to enjoy it with 100 seats split between the shaded patio and beachfront tables – perfect for a spot of sunbathing.
Serious about coffee
Lucky Beach takes coffee pretty seriously. Just up the road they run Brighton’s largest roastery and supply most of the better coffee houses across the city including their own, Redroaster, located in St James Street.
What’s on the menu at Lucky Beach Brighton?
The chefs use native breed organic Sussex beef for hamburgers which is grass-fed and dry-aged. Fish is landed locally and delivered each morning so occasionally there might be changes to the menu depending on availability. Chicken and pork is all local and free-range. The best way we can think to describe the menu style is almost Californian, with plenty of fresh flavours and healthy options for those who don’t fancy a heavy lunch. When the sun shines it’s possibly the best place to be hanging out at in the city.
Their famous eggs are local and organic and are from Colombian Blacktails, Lohman Browns and Goldline’s and graze on grass and forage outside.
Enjoy classics such as fish and chips and burgers, or choose something light and fresh such as their fish tacos or avocado ‘Vegan Hippy Dip’ sandwich! The brunch menu is served until 11.45 am and is well worth getting up early to grab a seat on the beach – their coffee is roasted locally and treats such as avocado on toast and brioche french toast is sure to awaken your tastebuds.
Lucky Beach have been awarded the UK’s ‘Best Organic Burger’ by Elle, now that’s definitely worth visiting for!
Off the sauce?
Lucky Beach offers some of the most delicious booze-free drinks in the city, including beetroot lemonade, elderflower fizz, and fresh passionfruit fizz – perfect if you’re head is a little sore or you just fancy drinking something soft. Bottoms up!
Fundraising for Rwanda school
Lucky Beach has fundraised to help build a school in Musenyi, Rwanda. They did this through hosting an event where their staff all worked for free and local suppliers donated food & drink to be served. Michelin Star specials were served and guests would enjoy a day of great food & drink whilst supporting a good cause. Look out for more events held at Lucky Beach.
