Red Roasters – Cafe Review

How refreshing is it to see an amazing cafe when you are travelling that reminds you of back home. Great coffee, amazing food and smart on trend design and a slick fit out.

We did not hesitate to enter this vibrant Brighton café during our month long tour of the United Kingdom when we viewed the refreshing new botanically designed business at Red Roasters. The café is only a block away from the famous Brighton Pier in the trendy suburb of Kemptown. The first thing that caught my attention was the custom three group Mirage which was positioned at the entry of this amazing space paired with a group of well presented smiling barista’s.

Red Roaster café is the creation of the Restaurateur duo Mike and Diana Palmer who sought the inspiration from Australian interior designer Hana Hakim of the Stella Collective who was the inspiration behind some great Australian cafés like Workshop Brothers and The Kettle Black. Diana told me that they were in the movements of selling up and going to Australia to start a café and realised after spending a few months researching the Australian hospitality scene decided why not bring a bit of Melbourne back to Brighton, the town they know so well. Both Diana and Mike have worked in corporate hospitality as managers and then as consultants so they already have a few profitable hospitality businesses under their belt like the popular Brighton Lucky Beach café.

The idea behind the Red Roaster new concept was to combine a great café business in the day with a fine dining restaurant at night called Pike and Pine.

The couple partnered with Michelin Star chef Matt Gillan who has worked within a number of outstanding awarded restaurants around Europe. Matt offers a choice of nightly degustation menus paired with some amazing wines.
The Red Roaster business was purchased by Mike and Diana a few years back when the long established Brighton coffee roaster wanted to retire. The couple were long term customers of the coffee business and they could see the potential for the busy Kemptown sight with a fresh fitted out business model. Red Roaster supply to a good lineup of local cafes and have been recently approached with some interesting opportunities since Red Roasters newly established business has become a reality. Diana is excited about this side of the business and has taken on experienced lead coffee roaster Rob Ross to expand the wholesale business around the UK.

This business is refined and classy and the open space is drowning with natural light which is a big draw card for locals seeking shelter from those some times seaside wild elements. The hanging plants make you feel like you are in a glass house making you want to breathe in the clean air. It’s refreshing to see how creative smart business owners from around the globe are creating these amazing cafes of the future.
