excellent delicious and healthy food

Canteen is amazing a great menu of healthy food that even teenagers and kids like! All freshly made, staff really friendly -gets busy as so good and stairs are tricky but there is a small seating area downstairs. The food is simply delicious. They could do with more than one loo!

This has great reviews, so I was so surprised on trying Canteen to get a vegetable curry that smelled of cooking cabbage did not look good on the plate and tasted mediocre. Very disappointed.

I love to eat here for an inexpensive meal deal which includes a wrap, a drink, and a bag of crisps for under £8. Seating upstairs and on the ground floor by the window made it an excellent place to relax. Wraps are made to order and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Ten stars! A great menu of healthy food, much of it sourced locally. Amazing fruit smoothies, indulgent desserts, too. I had the salad option, where you choose a 'base', then 3 items from the counter display, then one 'deli' item. Filling, delicious and very fresh. Friendly staff who obviously enjoy what they do. Very central location, right next to the... More

I went to the Canteen on my last trip to Canterbury and had one of their wraps. The wrap was delicious, and the ingredients were all very fresh. The manager welcomed me with a smile when I came in, and helped me figure out what I wanted when I was a little indecisive. If you have the opportunity, I would... More

This is a great value eatery in the heart of town. We had jacket potatoes with cheese and beans, sat upstairs and took 20 minutes out of the hustle of the day in town. Recommended.

Had lunch here while on holiday in Canterbury. We wanted fresh healthy vegetarian options and we found them here. Generous servings. Good coffee' although nowhere in the UK makes coffee as good as in NZ or AUS. There are 3 dining floor levels on the sunny side of the building but the best view is out of the toilet windows...

First ever visit to Canterbury and opted to take lunch here from a wide selection of eateries in the town centre. First class choice ! Excellent flat bread wraps presented as toasties. Lovely crunchy texture with a great range of very fresh ingredients. Pleasant service and reasonable prices.

We visited Canterbury and we're pleased to eat lunch here- I had a wonderful small salad with spinach avocado feta chicken and sweet chilli sauce, it was delicious. My son had a wrap where he picked his own ingredients including cheese and grated carrot so was happy. Hubby picked a special wrap with Chorizo off the board. Everyone was happy... More
