The beach cafe began life back in April 2013. It snowed that day and nobody came in. Thankfully, over the years things changed. We became well known for Brightons best burgers and the best brunch in Brighton and above all as a sustainable beach cafe for locals and visitors. And dogs, of course, we are a proud Brighton dog friendly cafe just ask for our dog menu.

Join us for the Lucky Beach Cafes Annual Brighton DOODLEFEST

These days we sell more local fish and chips than brunch and burgers combined. And a lot of Aperol Spritz! Breakfast at the cafe runs until 11:45 each day, then it’s lunch focused on local fish, a lot of crab, delicious local organic burgers, salads and in winter, plenty of warming chowder.  We don’t take bookings so just head down, you’ll always get in and we have covered tables out on the beach as well as inside our 200 year old fishermans arch.


Since 2013 Lucky Beach Cafe has been serving Brighton’s best brunch, organic burgers & beers.

We are very proud to have been named as both the UK’s best beach cafe and the UK’s favourite sustainable restaurant. We are a certified B corporation.

We serve delicious brunches, organic hamburgers, local fish & an awful lot of Aperol Spritz.  Come down and stay a while, we open year round (unless the weather’s really bad in which case we notify via insta) and we would love to see you.
