the best in Canterbury

There's no doubt: if you're vegetarian or vegan, then the Veg Box café is the best place to eat out in Canterbury. Warm, friendly location; great staff; healthy, filling and sometimes quite creative food. Lunch below a tenner. Go there.

I almost didn't go because it was difficult to find and then from the entrance it looks like its just a whole foods shop so I was worried it was just going to be a deli. Nice spot, food was tasty but nothing special.

Pros: atmosphere, tasty food, friendly staff
Cons: location, unimaginative menu

"Organic, vegetarian/vegan breakfasts, lunches, snacks, drinks and cakes." Open 10:00 am-3:30 pm, lunch from 12 noon, Monday-Saturday. The menu is on a large blackboard, including daily specials. A few vegan items but mostly lacto-ovo-vegetarian. Soup, sweets - made in-house, including vegan ice cream, vegan chocolate cupcake, beetroot brownie, lemon and almond polenta cupcake. Also Fairtrade coffees, teas, organic juices.
I had celeriac with sage soup which came with wholemeal bread and vegan spread (margarine) for GBP4.95. Another time I had squash and lentil dahl on brown rice, with mango chutney and greens salad, daily special 7.95, and nettle tea. Delicious comfort-food for a chilly, damp day.

Pros: tasty food, good location
Cons: not enough vegan options

A nice little place above the Wholefoods market. I didn't find the food that good though and the vegan dessert options were very limited.

Pros: focus on organic and local products
Cons: average food, limited vegan options for dessert

I ate lunch at the Veg Box with my partner on a rainy Saturday in June. When we arrived it was quite busy, but not full. I ordered the soup of the day (Broccoli, Courgette & Pea) (vegan) which came with two chunks of very nice brown bread. My partner had the veggie burger, which came with large potato wedges and a generous portion of salad. Everything was very tasty. For dessert I had an iced chocolate cupcake (vegan) and my partner had the carrot cake; they both get top marks for yummyness! We were sevred quickly and the atmosphere was friendly and casual. In total (including drinks) the meal came to about £21.

Pros: great value for money, vegan desserts, gluten free options
Cons: might be hard to find

In a great setting, really nice servers, and great food, how can you go wrong? Being Vegan, I'm used to not having choice and as this was described as Veggie friendly who catered for Vegan I didn't expect much - what I got was a good choice and an excellent meal - plus a proper, non-wishy-washy soy cappuccino :) Absolutely recommend it. Will go back for more when I'm in town again and one day I'm going to try the breakfast

Pros: Excellent food, Great service, Great place
Cons: Not big enough!
