Redroaster Cafe Brighton

Red Roaster by day and Lucky Khao by night. A modern, bright and spacious venue that serves ethically sourced coffee, breakfast and all day brunches.

Redroaster Cafe Brighton

The Redroaster cafe in Brighton serves ethically sourced, hand-roasted coffee, serving a Brighton brunch and lunch every day of the year.

By day this sleek venue is the famous Redroaster and by night is becomes Lucky Khao. Filled with design-led furnishings such as marble surfaces, gold features and geometrics serving an exciting menu and roasting their own coffee beans.

We can see why The New York Times said it’s a ‘go-to destination’!

Breakfast & lunch – Redroaster Brighton

Serving from 8 am-5 pm, Redroaster is the place to go if you’re looking for a sophisticated brunch or a Brighton lunch. You’ll find modern takes on classic breakfasts such as their crab and avocado brioche with yuzu curd, or their herb waffle with bacon jam, black pudding and maple glazed streaky bacon topped with a fried egg.

If you can’t choose, there’s a breakfast board that has all your favourite breakfast treats such as avocado, smoked salmon, soft boiled eggs, house granola served with yoghurt and a shot of red juice for that health kick!

You can take a seat on one of their tables on the street and people-watch while sipping a cup of coffee, or if you prefer you can sit inside yet still have the sun and fresh air with their large windows. It’s the perfect sunspot in the afternoon too, a great place to meet a friend for lunch! They are also wheelchair accessible, have a disabled toilet and provide baby changing facilities. Red Roaster also offers an impressive Brighton bottomless brunch.

The Redroaster Cafe. Coffee Co, Est 2000

Did you know, that Redroaster was one of the first specialist coffee houses in the UK when they set up in 2000?

Still to this day, they are the only certified organic roastery in the South. They roast up their beans every day to ensure they’re serving the freshest coffee, not only this but it’s all made in their vintage Diedrich roasters. When you drink a coffee from Redroaster, you’ll be drinking arabica beans which have been sourced from around the world. If you love the coffee at Redroaster as much as us, you can always buy yourself a bag in their cafe, online or at Selfridges! Single estate, organic blends along with decaffeinated beans can be purchased.

Providing Brighton with ethical coffee

Redroaster Brighton provide wholesale coffee and supply to many venues around Brighton, so you might have seen their courier bikes cycling around the city to deliver a batch of beans to their next client! If you, or somebody you know is interested in partnering with Redroaster, they deliver free in Brighton and Hove and can deliver throughout the UK.

Being passionate about ethical coffee yet providing quality beans at a fair price, Redroaster support the Rwandan farmers, their families and everyone involved in supplying the coffee beans for the cafe. For example Redroaster has helped the Rwandan farmers become more self-sufficient, are currently building a school in Musenyi, provide safe water, have built a health post (which sees 900 patients a month), built a community centre and arrange training for use of the farm equipment.

Evening fun and delicious dining

From 7pm Redroaster becomes Lucky Khao Brighton (Khao meaning rice in Thai) serves Northern Thai charcoal barbeque, curries and sharing plates. The food is exciting, the vibe is fun, and the experience is recommended.

    This was my first lunch out since lockdown started to see and so I had high expectation, Redroaster didn’t disappoint. I had the gnocchi with mushrooms, kale, broccoli and almond crumble (for a vegan parmesan effect). It was filling, super tasty with crunchy greens and the almond crumble had that strong parmesan flavour that mushrooms go so well with. Although I was full I would have eaten it again, and again, and again.

  2. Rhys Trussler

    I’ve been drinking the coffee from here for so long I think it’s in my DNA, just like Redroaster is in the DNA of Brighton – it’s a worthy destination alongside those of the Pavillion and the Palace Pier (and not far away from either).

    Love this new place! I went for brunch – the herb waffle with bacon jam and black pudding is amazing! Accompanied by great coffee and really lovely service this is one of my top places – can’t wait to go back

    We tried the Redroaster on Sunday morning – all of us! Granny, Toddler, Aunty, Uncle, Mummy, Teenager.

    We had a very nice time. We sat outside in the shady courtyard and had some delicious food.

    The service was good too and we had a bit of a giggle with our waiter which was nice and right for the occasion.

    I suspect strongly that we will be doing that again.

    Had breakfast for 6 here this Sunday and was extremely impressed. Everything well cooked, full of flavour – they had different breakfast ideas to usual. All in all outstanding. Sat in outside rear, accommodated children well. Marvellously clean in there, bit design led.. incredible coffee
