First Review by Veggiebarn

amazing! - Edit

This place is absolutely amazing, I go whenever I'm in Southampton, along with a trip to rice up!
I've had the vegan fry up here twice and it's just so delicious and healthy! The milkshakes are fantastic too, the maple butter pecan flavour is too good! They have good cakes too, and if you're looking for a hot drink, they have lots of plant milks. My absolute favourite spot in Southampton. Oh the refined sugar free sundae is also tasty!

Pros: brilliant menu, tasty food

Very tasty, cheap and big portions - Edit

Not my favourite kind of food - it's rather a fast food restaurant than vegan cafe but sometimes I allow myself to eat food like this ;) Everything tastes great, especially tempeh which I usually don't like. Portions are big and cheap. For my sensitive stomach, this kind of food is too heavy but it's just my personal sensitivity. In general, this is a great place, especially to take your carnivore friends or family and show them how tasty and filling vegan food can be.

Brilliant all-vegan cafe - Edit

Only all-vegan cafe I know of in Southampton. Overwhelming selection of breakfasts, burgers, pizzas (weekend only), salads, sandwiches and desserts. Also serves great smoothies, juices and milkshakes. Couldn't fault the food, the staff or the atmosphere. Definitely a must-visit for any veg*n or veg-curious folks in Southampton.

Best Vegan cafe in town! - Edit

We've been to the cafe several times and food is just amazing. The New Yorker rouben sandwich is a must. They also have a great selection of desserts - donuts, ice cream, waffles, cupcakes, etc.

Pros: all vegan, plus gluten and soy free options

Cons: take away prices are cheaper than eating in.

Fab Lunch - Edit

I had a fab lunch with my friend who recommended we visit Cafe Thrive. I had a very creamy almond matcha latte to start and then went for the wholefood burger with chips. It was really tasty and filling. I then had a fragrant Kyoto cherry blossom green tea which transported me back to my time in Japan. I couldn't turn down a split cream doughnut so had one to takeaway to enjoy later.

exceeded our expectations - Edit

We just had a few hours in Southampton and hadn't heard of Thrive before, but the photos and reviews on HappyCow looked promising and we haven't been disappointed. Very delicious, it exceeded our expectations, I'd even say one of my favourite places in Europe. We didn't have the cheese platter but (saw at another table and) it looked amazing. We had the sandwiches, loaded fries and a donut. I can only recommend this place. We need to go back to Southampton.

Pros: delicious , nice atmosphere, good selection

absolutely delicious! - Edit

We went here when they had their winter menu and it was delicious! The Thrive Christmas sandwich was insane and I’d absolutely eat it again. The place has a great atmosphere and a really nice view outside. The menu is amazing and the desserts are also incredibly yummy. Definitely recommend this place, I was awesome.

Amazing find! - Edit

Found this place on Happy Cow on a trip to Southampton. Absolutely lovely and friendly staff. Close to the shops, easy to find. Bustling cafe with so many vegan options from hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream to burgers, pizzas (after 5pm), hot breakfast (before 12pm), sandwiches and salads. Not to mention the number of sweet treats including waffles and knickerbocker glory lookalikes!

Pros: Great variety, Extremely tasty, Good price

Best Place - Even Omni Kids Love It! - Edit

It's so nice to finally have a dedicated vegan cafe in Southampton. I've been here several times, and I've yet to be disappointed.

The food is divine. You can be as healthy or unhealthy as you like without breaking the bank. Lots of drinks options, a plethora of milk options for hot drinks...it's just incredible.

Recently I took my omni family here for lunch. Even my 12-y/o brother was pleased with the food! He polished off his main, a dessert AND chocolate milkshake, and said how much he enjoyed it. My mother also ate well and commented on how tasty everything was.

It's also nice that it's in the main shopping area, just down the road from Debenhams. It overlooks one of the town's many parks, has upstairs and outdoor seating, is open late on Friday and Saturday, AND there's a vegan supermarket not two doors away!

Bonus? They also do takeaway!

Pros: Amazing food, Affordable, Dog and child friendly

Cons: Not on high street, but in main shopping precinct, No room in stomach to buy everything!

Amazing burgers - Edit

Visited this cafe twice in one day, first time had the whole food burger and waffles for dessert (very big, should have shared with my husband instead of one each) then came back later and got the same burger for takeaway dinner (it was that good!)

Pros: reasonable prices, good portion sizes, next door to a health food shop

Cons: menu could be easier to read (bit crammed on so ea

OMG the best vegan cafe 💞 - Edit

I can’t even express how much I love this place. I tried their ‘meaty’ burger and it was the most delicious burger I’ve had. Definitely my number one place. They offer different specials, for example I tried vegan kebab with cheese chips or steak and cheese baguette. They just get everything right. They have so many cake, doughnut and treats options. One of my faves is cream filled doughnut. I love this place 💞

Pros: delicious food, budget friendly

I never knew this place existed - Edit

I've lived in Southampton all my life and what a find. I've recently turned Vegan and love coming to town and treating myself to lunch. The food was flavoursome and the staff were friendly. Will definitely be coming back to sample more of the menu x

Pros: Lots of choice.

Cons: Busy but I see that as a good thing as well.

Great cafe - Edit

I ate here recently and we had a great experience. We both chose the "meaty" burger, it was certainly a big patty! We also tried the sides of onion rings, loaded chips and humous.

All the food was a really good quality, the toppings on the "meaty" burger were really good, it came with a nice mayo and cheese on top.

There were alot of customisation options for the burger which i liked (including things like onion rings, humous and has browns).

There were also a lot of nice looking cakes at the counter but we didn't have the belly space for those too!

The cafe was a nice size downstairs and they had plenty more seating upstairs too.

We found that they didn't serve the pizza before 5 so sadly we couldn't try any.

In all a very recommendable place to eat!

Pros: Great burgers, Nice atmosphere, great sides

Wow Great Addition To Southampton For Vegan Dining - Edit

The menu at Cafe Thrive is extensive and covers all tastes, dietary requirements and appetites and they also offer takeaway sandwiches and salads. A chiller cabinet displayed a wide variety of vegan cakes, croissants and brownies, who said vegans cannot have their cake and eat it.

We ordered a gluten free vegan breakfast and a tweaked vegan breakfast to accommodate my allergies. We loved the food so well cooked, packed with flavour and a fabulous barbecue taste to the mushrooms, absolutely delicious breakfasts.

Cafe Thrive is owned by a young enterprising couple and when we visited chef Sarah had to leave for the doctors, due to a knife injury, so we really appreciated her making our breakfasts, before she left. We will be visiting again, when next in Southampton.

Pros: All Vegan Menu, Vegan takeaway, Vegan cakes

Superb! - Edit

Cafe Thrive is the first all vegan eatery that Southampton has had. It's been a long wait but sooo worth it! Fantastic menu choices and delicious food. I had their home made 'meaty' burger followed by an amazing vanilla slice (first one I've had for over 15 years since going vegan). There are beautifully fresh salads and a great kids' menu. So much choice....will be going back very soon!

Pros: Very reasonable prices. , Fabulous cakes and puds!, Kids menu
