New café, Tiger Eats Carrot is helping bring life back to the Moulsecoomb Place lawns with support from the new owners of the site.
Tiger Eats Carrot, run by local couple Jacob Richardson and Kate Brigden, has already had great success with their established London Road café, serving delicious plant-based vegan food to the Brighton community, and are now open to the public at Moulsecoomb Place.
The small Brighton business has been provided with a 1950s Airstream diner trailer by Moulsecoomb Place owner Richard Upton, where they serve their signature falafel dishes and continue their sustainability mission, making delicious, fresh food from scratch, including their pickles and ferments.
Their Moulsecoomb menu is a falafel lovers dream, with falafel wraps and salad boxes with hummus, homemade pickles, shredded slaw, tahini and lots more flavourful vegan ingredients. Tigermoth Coffee, roasted in Lewes, is proudly served and sweet café treats are available, such as triple chocolate brownies and vegan blueberry muffins for a coffee accompaniment or delicious dessert.
“We are excited to be a part of bringing Moulsecoomb Place lawns back to life and look forward to welcoming the local community to the airstream,” said Jacob and Kate.
Customers can eat in or take away at the Airstream diner, which seats ten people inside, and has plenty of outside seating to enjoy the fresh, handmade food and the beautiful gardens, where families can relax, with fencing making it a safe place for children to run around. Students, university staff and dog lovers are all welcome.
Even their crockery is handmade from scratch with Kate Brigden serving in-house Moulsecoomb customers with her homemade pottery to reduce environmental impact. Brigden also runs pottery classes from the London Road café, so visitors can take home a piece of Tiger Eats Carrot’s unique atmosphere.
Opening hours are Wednesday – Saturday, 10am to 3pm.
