Expert review of Redroaster

In a city which loves good coffee, this café serves some of the best.

Fiercely independent and quietly brilliant, Redroaster is a relaxed neighbourhood hangout that’s run by people who know coffee inside out - their head roaster was recently named the UK’s champion coffee taster by the Specialist Coffee Association of Europe.

Food and drink: 

The coffee is definitely the star of the show - it’s carefully sourced by the caffeine-loving owners and blended, roasted and ground on the premises. They also serve yummy hot chocolate, sandwiches, salads, pastries and other tempting nibbles.

Ambience: 

Redroaster attracts a varied crowd - friends of all ages drop in for a chat, families stop by on shopping trips and singles settle in to read the papers or tap away at their laptops. The high ceiling and traditional, dark wood café tables and chairs lend a continental feel and there’s often some challenging art or photography on display.

Service: 

You’re served at the counter; it’s speedy, even when they’re busy.

Location: 

At the lower end of St James’s Street, it’s opposite the Royal Pavilion and around 250 metres from Brighton Pier, between Kemptown's gay village and the busy centre.

Price advice: 

Coffee and a treat costs under £5.
