Brunch Review Red Roaster

Red Roaster is based in Brighton and we actually came across it after watching Zoella (well duh!). Zoe and Alfie regularly talk about the Red Roaster in their vlogs and we have also seen some photos feature one their Instagram and we can totally see why they rave about it so much!

A short walk from the station but very close to the seafront, you can eat inside or outside. There is seating our the front and in the small garden out the back too.
Lets start with the interior design, this place is incredible. The marble tables are a bloggers dream as they are so Instagramable, you can sit at tables or on high stalls over looking over the kitchen. There are lots of plants everywhere so it kinda feels like a greenhouse! There is also a cool slogan on the wall 🙂

Now lets talk about the toilets (sorry!), they are so pretty with white and black tiles covering the walls. We love to check out the toilets wherever we go as we really believe it says a lot about a cafe or restaurant. It’s safe to say these did not disappoint especially as they had Cowshed soap and hand cream on offer! When a place has nice toilet’s with long mirrors (perfect for a boomerang!) you know you will be making a return.

Anyway, now for the main event, we both ordered iced coffees to drink, opting for the iced coffee with maple syrup for Rachel and iced cinnamon latte for Annie.

For main, we of course went for the same thing as per usual. We chose waffles topped with semi-dried tomatoes, smoked salmon, calamari and cream cheese. We got three waffles each and it was incredible!

There were so many cool things on the menu to choose from and the menu was very alternative with unique twists on traditional brunch dishes. We would definitely return here on our bi-yearly trip to Brighton. It appears their menu is seasonal, so on our next trip there will be new different dishes to choose!
