Moksha Caffe | November 2019
Brighton’s best brunch of 2019 (voted by the public in the BRAVOs) was always going to be delicious, but it had been overlooked by us in the past due to its location, size and busy atmosphere.
After a delicious coffee and fresh orange juice, however, we were ready to change our minds.
We’re a bit hesitant about shellfish on a brunch menu (we decided not to feature one new restaurant on the blog because of a flavourless and generally VERY disappointing lobster benedict priced at £18), but Moksha’s fab crab benny – a generous mound of crabmeat, pea purée and perfectly poached eggs atop a slice of rye – was fresh, full of flavor and utterly delicious. Elsewhere on the table, the full English was also treat, the homemade beans the cherry on top of a very satisfying plate. A new one for the kitchen – ham hock with hash browns (ohhh, the hash browns) and kale – is also well worth a mention, and is one we’d recommend wholly to meat eaters after something a bit different.
Though we missed veggie options this time, that’s not to say the menu is lacking – there are plenty of plant-based options in this roomy cafe. Another mention, while we didn’t have it this time, goes to their Mexican inspired dishes. The Huevos Rancheros is HUGE, but is unlike any other dish offered for brunch across Brighton.
No wonder they went an won an award for it.
