Infinity Foods Kitchen, Brighton

The refurbished organic café boasts a brilliant selection of freshly pressed vegan shakes, vegetarian and vegan breakfasts and lunches and scrummy vegan cakes.


Terre à Terre, Brighton

This iconic restaurant is the place to take meat-eaters who claim vegetarian and vegan food is tasteless. Each dish is composed of a mouth-watering, colourful concoction of ingredients and Terre excels at veggie and vegan brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.


The Chilli Pickle, Brighton

This award-winning restaurant specialises in delicious Indian street food and offers lots of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Vegans will love the pani puri: mini crispy puri shells with hot & sour tamarind pepper water, herb chutney and chickpea salad.
