My friend and I arrived just before the restaurant was about to close but the gentleman said it was no problem for us to eat from the snack menu. We ordered the snack platter, the noodle pot and the couscous jar. The restaurant itself had a homely feel, and I can imagine that had we have been earlier, the atmosphere... More

Shared a great vegetarian lunch with a friend away from the hustle of the main street. Relaxed, friendly and attentive staff.

Came here for cake for my birthday (not easy to get dairy& gluten free cake!) Excellent efficient service. Vegan & DF chocolat cheesecake was yum! Near the end it was a bit bitter. Lucky I had the best dairy free hot choc. Yummy ! Very busy cool restaurant. Has lots of healthy DF or GF options. Should make GF bread... More

I ate lunch here today and it made me feel happy. I am vegetarian. Food is fresh and freshly prepared. Food combinations are imaginative but straightforward. Taste is paramount. I had soup, bread and salad. Excellent tastes and textures. Food made with love and served by friendly and communicative staff members. The atmosphere of the room was warm and welcoming.... More

One of the best places for lunch in Canterbury, healthy, hearty and tastes wonderful. There is a nice atmosphere and the cakes and puddings are to die for. One of only two cafes I go to in Canterbury.

My wife suggested that I treat her to a lunch here. I'm not vegetarian but don't mind trying different things. The wife is more complicated as she has dietary requirements as well, which sometimes can be very frustrating to sort out if we are popping in anywhere. We had to wait for a table (the shop downstairs was very handy)... More

Some people would never visit a vegetarian cafe, targeted at vegetarians and vegans, and situated almost on the back of a whole food shop. They will miss out on a lovely experience. The Veg Box Cafe feels as if it's on a evangelical mission to change the world. I don't mind that, because I'm always happy to lock swords with... More

I most certainly am not a vegetarian, but the image of nut cutlets and rabbit food is totally inappropriate for the veg box cafe. I had a very tasty veggie meal of home made (I think) quiche and salad, washed down with an organic beer. Both meal and beverage were excellent, although I found the chocolate cheesecake rather bland, and... More

We popped in for lunch having been here about 2 years ago and remembered it was good. We had a quiche with salad and bean burger with their Buddha salad which was fantastic. Desserts were a little disappointing with the raw chocolate cheesecake being bland and a bit soggy and the ginger bomb was tasty but very heavy and not... More

We just missed lunch (which looked great from the menu) but had a very nice tasting platter. The staff were friendly, the prices were reasonable, and though we were the only customers at that time of day it had a lovely atmosphere. Even better, there's a right proper vegetarian shop downstairs with a cork board full of petitions!
