Amazing vegan options and the best vegan breakfast ever

It’s so nice not to have wilted spinach on a vegan breakfast, sometimes you just want a proper fry up! The food is cooked fresh and isn’t greasy. It’s my go to cafe!

always a winner

smiles is a great little family run cafe in southsea it provides honest non fussy cafe food. Staff are very knowledgeable about vegan and vegetarian requirements despite not being specifically targeting that audience. Always at least one vegan cake option to. The do a killer vegan fry up.

Pros: varied vegan options and open to making amendments

Surprising Find!

Was not expecting to find a full English vegan big breakfast in Portsmouth. Just great. While it won't suit a lot of vegans I actually quite like that a standard cafe caters for all. Big vegan breakfast included veg sausages, hashbrowns, baked beans and more. Very impressed.

Pros: Vegan Fry Up, Friendly Staff, Clearly Labelled Veg Items

Cons: Not a 'quaint' style of cafe

Vegan options in friendly Southsea cafe.

Southsea, indeed Portsmouth as a whole, is rather a wilderness for vegans so we were pleased to find Smile when we visited the area on Saturday 5th April 2014. It serves standard cafe food - all day breakfasts, sandwiches, salads, roasts, omelettes, chips - with vegetarian and vegan options clearly labelled. Staff are welcoming and knowledgeable and the food is freshly prepared and tasty. They even have vegan cakes!

Pros: A choice of vegan options., Friendly staff, Good food

Cons: Not a vegan cafe, No telephone number.
