It's atop the Wholefoods shop, so if you get hungry whilst looking through all their enticing products, you don't have to wait to go back home to cook! Just go to the vegbox cafe where they cater for everyone's needs from gluten free to vegan. They're a veggie cafe so no meat but they do still use animal products. There... More

The quality of the food was really very good although the service, while friendly, was slow so you need to be quite laid back. The restaurant space sits above a whole food supermarket and is comfortable but basic, come here for the food quality and to eat healthily. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and will return. Great for a lunch and... More

The setting was pleasant as it is quiet and off of the busy Canterbury high street. Service was great, with food quick and the staff attentive. While a quiet Monday afternoon, the atmosphere and environment was very clean, tidy and pleasant. The menus are very clear, table was set with some lovely garden flowers, and the specials clearly displayed on... More

Nice to find a quality health food cafe / shop that everyone can visit without feeling you need to have a knowledge of nutrition

We try to visit the Veg Box Cafe alternating on the times we go to Canterbury because it has good food. The choices are good for our gluten free requirements and often they are able to cater for gluten and lactose free daughter. It can get full at peak times, so worth getting there before the rush hour or at... More

I have been twice now, the first time I was dragged along by my vegetarian friend, how wrong I was! It was INCREDIBLE! I had the houmous and mango chutney sandwich, and I was craving another one so badly I went and had lunch alone there today! What a lovely friendly atmosphere, great value for money and good healthy food.... More

I'm not a veggie myself but I do love vegetarian food. The Veg Box Cafe has a small menu and a specials board, everything is fresh and made from locally-sourced, organic ingredients where possible. I had the superfood salad of the day which was Moroccan roasted vegetables with apricot and red quinoa and it was so delicious. Quinoa can be... More

I have been here on many occasions and the menu is always varied and interesting. The food always looks good and the flavours are great. I like the laid back atmosphere, it is tucked away in a back street but always seems busy - child friendly too.
