Lovely fresh food

Made to order salads, wraps etc. Food always fresh and tasty, great veggie options and satisfies my other half's bacon cravings too. Quirky interior, good tea choice. We love this place for a 30 minute break whilst shopping on a busy weekend.

I visited here when a friend came for lunch by herself, she had a huge burrito and after trying some I knew I had to come back myself! A few days later, on a super busy Saturday I revisited and ordered a fresh fruit smoothie and wrap. All made to order and tasted delicious! There were plenty of seats to... More

This place is pretty popular with the locals to grab a bite for lunch. They do nice salads, wraps and sandwiches and also offer specials as well. I've been here several times and always enjoyed what I've had. There are some good people watching spots upstairs :)

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.
