About them

The Wild Artisan Cafe is unique among the food spots in Brighton, it uses a variety of flavours and special ingredients to create meals that are highly nourishing and healthy but also delicious.

Everything is locally sourced and freshly made using wild organic ingredients. Using these amazing ingredients they create all sorts of traditional brunch and lunch dishes such as crab benedict with seaweed hollandaise and cornflake-crusted French toast.

How Wild Artisan Café started

The owners of Wild Artisan Café are Russel and Fran, who relocated to beautiful Brighton from London. Russell has nearly 30 years of experience, working in a variety of restaurants, including Michelin Star restaurants like The Aubergine.

Russell and Fran came up with the concept for Wild Artisan Café while sitting on Brighton beach and gazing out into the sea. At that moment, they both realised how fortunate they felt to live close to nature, which sparked the idea for Wild artisan cooking. So by using Russel’s passion for creating tasty and wholesome meals and combining them with organic ingredients, Wild Café started to take shape.


Wild Café uses only the most natural and fresh ingredients available in the area, offering food for everyone, with vegan options available in abundance. But that’s not all… in addition to being sustainable, using these ingredients also supports the body’s health, offering interesting tastes and health benefits.

From full-time foodies to fussy eaters, Wild Artisan Café offers unique dishes sure to satisfy everyone, including:


The best way to start the day is with great coffee. Wild Artisan Café sources its coffee beans from the most reputable local supplier, Roasted. However, if you’re not a coffee fan, you could always go for a tea or hot chocolate to warm you up. Alternative kinds of milk are available in all drinks at no extra cost! There are also delicious soft drinks, healthy fresh smoothies, and local craft beers for those who are less caffeine-inclined.

Having an exhibition at St Augustine's was a great experience. The staff are eager to help and you feel very supported while there. It is a great space to exhibit in, with a lot of people calling in to use the other facilities. The atmosphere of the place is very special, it feels very inclusive and has great energy. I highly recommend the exhibition space and the Cafe is an added bonus. Thank you all for making me feel so welcome and making the exhibition a wonderful experience.

The staff at St Augustine's dealt all of my needs and provided an invaluable support service to my team of dancers and actors. Amazing place for contemporary and traditional dance pieces. We performed a sell out interactive theatrical production and it was very exciting.
