I love the Veg Box! Whenever I fancy lunch in town it is nearly always my first choice. There is no other cafe in Canterbury offering such lovely, fresh tasting, veggie food. Always great service too. It is true that they sometimes run out of food early, but it just makes me try something new? and I've never been disappointed!... More

Great meals with loads of gluten free and vegan options. The deserts are also awesome with gluten free and vegan options available. Check out the store below the cafe afterwards to pick up some extra items for home!

We come here every couple of months and the food is delicious. It is a vegetarian menu with four or five main dishes including a soup, buddha bowl and quiche which change each day according to the ingredients available. They also do amazing bean burgers served with homemade relish and potato wedges. Unfortunately, having been twice in two weeks, on... More

We visited for lunch whilst on holiday in Canterbury. What a lovely find. A limited but lovely menu with interesting options for both mains and desserts. The burger was beautiful and the budda bowl and salad were delightful too. My husband had the special salad which he also really enjoyed. Both of our cakes were also excellent. It had a... More

This cafe is run by great people who really care about food and about providing a good space for people to relax and feel at home. Specially little people. They have a fantastic children's area with sofas, toys and books, including a fabulous dolls house. And now for the food. It is food that makes you feel good in every... More

I have done my fair share of eating quiches, so I can honestly say that the veg box cafe has the best ones I have ever tried. Excelent place to grab a delicious and nutricious bite.
