The best quiche ever

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.

We often stop at the Veg Box cafe for lunch or coffee as we know the food is always incredible and the staff are wonderful. This was the very first place I ever took my newborn out for lunch as I knew it would be a comfortable place with more than adequate baby change facilities. I also knew that we... More

Very tasty food and fast & friendly service. I would recommend it warmly to also non-vegetarians travelling in Canterbury.

My boyfriend and I recently visited Veg Box Cafe for lunch for the first time, and it didn't disappoint. We arrived at about 12, and by about 12.30 (on a Tuesday during half term) tables were beginning to fill up- we were glad we'd arrived early. Ordering from the drinks menu there were a wide range of lovely juices. If... More

Really nice to come here. It's hard to find a good vegetarian restaurant with such different and imaginative dishes. The staff were polite. Everything felt a bit sticky where we were sitting. That was the only downside. Everything else was jolly nice!

You can't beat this place for a tasty, healthy lunch in Canterbury. It's quite hidden away (and would really benefit from it's own ground floor space with garden etc) but that's maybe one of it's charms. If you like creative cooking with healthy, locally sourced ingredients then this is right up your street. Not great for a coffee with a... More

This place is truly wonderful. I literally fell in love with it. The atmosphere is calm and the food is really delicious! I love how the menu changes regularly which is a breath of fresh air. I had the veg box pot noodle soup which was lovely. You also a decent potion for the price. Also the vegan chocolate cupcakes... More

Five of us met for lunch on a busy Thursday during the half-term holiday. Because it is quite small, we went early, just after twelve o'clock, which was a wise move as it very quickly filled up. The clientele was varied and most had clearly eaten there before. There is quite a small menu which is supplemented by a good... More
