Fortify Cafe is Maidstone's first vegan eatery, offering some of the best home-cooked food in a relaxed and stylish setting. From delicious quiches and fritattas to home-made cakes, everything on offer at Fortify is meat-free. Eveything we serve at Fortify Cafe is made on the premises with fresh, local ingredients. We specialise in wholesome, delicious food - that also happens to be vegan. Lots of our dishes are also suitable for those seeking wheat & gluten free alternatives, so just ask if you're not sure!

Excellent, nutritious food at decent prices

My partner and I visit Fortify regularly and always leave full. All the staff are friendly and helpful and I love the atmosphere there. Many many meat eating friends and family have visited with me and love the food too. Would recommend to ANYONE and EVERYONE! Vegans and meat eaters alike.

The menu is so varied that you could easily eat here over and over and not be tired of it. The flavours are enticing, service very friendly and prices reasonable. Can't wait to go back.

I can't believe there is such a wonderful place to eat right on the doorstep.... especially now the menu is 100%Vegan and you get a discount if you are a member of the Vegan Society. All the food is such high quality...The chef is superb!..... So innovative. Generous portions and reasonably priced.

I cannot recommend this place enough. The standard menu is fantastic and there's always a changing list of specials to choose from. Staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the food they serve. I've been a few times before and the last time they had Seitan on the menu which I'd heard about and was eager to try and not... More

As a family of vegetarians rather than vegans I was intrigued to try this place as its not far from where we live, have wondered if I should be vegan and finding choice when eating is always a treat. We ate lunch here, myself and my two teenage children, one of whom has recenty been diagnosed as having Coeliac disease... More

I reviewed this place a few years ago and at the time, was really impressed. This hasn't changed. Since my first visit the menu has developed so that it is vegan - but nothing else has changed. The food is delicious, the service is great, the coffee is wonderful and the atmosphere is welcoming. I've read over some of the... More
