First Review by gingerlass

decent little cafe in a beautiful setting - Edit

The beech cafe is located near the from on the substainabilty center. They have various vegan options including hot and cold food. they also have a range of vegan cakes and atleast 2 vegan ice cream options these are usually coconut based. Would be nice to see some form of vegan panini on the menus but generally they do a good job.

Pros: fair amount of vegan options and a lovely outdoor

Cons: a sandwich will set you back 4.50 and a wrap or pa

Beech cafe review - Edit

This is a small but excellent cafe situated between Clanfield and Petersfield, and located on the South Downs Way. They only open for lunches but the choice is good. There are always plenty of vegan options, both light snacks, main meals and cakes. Their food is delicious and they have a great range of cakes and hot and cold drinks.
You can sit in or out depending on the weather, staff are friendly and service is excellent.
They now open 7 days a week.

Pros: Nice food, Beautiful loction, Choice e vegan dishes

Cons: Location is a bit out of the way

Fabulous find - worth a visit - Edit

There are not very many vegan friendly places in the Portsmouth area so I was delighted to find this one posted on Happy Cow.
We found a trnaquil setting and a quiet cafe with a menu of fresh dishes both vegetarian and vegan. I had a mushroom and leek tart (vegan) which came with salad and artisan bread. It was scrumptious - the tart was delicious, the salad marinated to perfection with seeds on the top and the bread lovely.
To follow up I had to have one of the two vegan cakes, plumping for the deliciously moist carrot cake. My non-vegan partner had the vegetarian mocha cake which was just as good apparantly.
There was a little wait for the main course as there was only one girl working whilst we were there, but this was not horrendous and the food more than compensated. Cake and drinks were served immediately.
I recommend The Beech Cafe and I will be back whenever I am in the area. The food was great and the prices very reasonable.
Winter opening hours posted on the door were Monday to Sunday 10 - 3 which is different to what is on this website and the Sustainability Centre website.

Pros: Great food, Vegans catered for, Tranquil

Cons: Little bit of a wait

Well worth a visit - Edit

A little of oasis for a vegetarian. Extremely good value for money. There is always a vegan main meal option, and most of the cakes are vegan!

Amazing Vegan Cake! - Edit

This is a hidden gem in the Hampshire country side - well worth a visit if you are in the area - not just for the outstanding and reasonably priced food at the cafe but also for the ground of the Sustainability Centre itself.

I recommend the amazing vegan cakes they have on offer and there are always plenty of them!

Pros: Price, Location, Friendly

Cons: Not open 7 days
