The Veg Box Café

The Veg Box Café


We are an independently run vegan café and restaurant located in the heart of Canterbury - a 2 minute walk from Canterbury Cathedral.

Making simple plant-based food special is our passion, and it’s easy when we use the best local, organic, and fair trade products available.

We cook delicious breakfasts and lunches on the premises every day. We also provide excellent teas, coffees, and an exceptional range of homemade cakes. Everything is readily available to take away in our handy compostable boxes.

What you need to know

Warm, pet-friendly, chilled out, good music, healthy food.

Come to us for a lovely freshly made healthy affordable meal or a more relaxed drink in the evenings.

Look out for information on acoustic music nights, games nights, knitting clubs, mums, dads and babies’ groups, comedy nights, free-range music nights, craft sessions, art classes, poetry readings, swap shops and more!
