Brighton for a while now has been well and truly ahead of the game when it
comes to offering a huge array of choice for those following a plant-based diet. So much so, that a day by the seaside simply isn’t enough to sink your teeth into the different options on offer in the form of vegan pizza, to creamy dairy-free ice
cream. If you’re planning a trip to the colourful little city this summer, here are a
few of our must visits.
For plant-based pizza, Purezza should be at the very top of your list. Brighton
born, it feels only natural to swing by, grab a table and dig into their wonderful
sourdough vegan pizzas, or even take one to go. Best enjoyed on the beach, we
think. Pizza Face is also another great Italian option, also offering tasty vegan
Food for Friends is an iconic vegetarian eatery in the heart of Brighton, and is a
fabulous place if you’re looking for slightly fancier meal. Take a short walk down
the street and you’ll find Terre a Terre, with similar offerings, making it great for
evening dining and special occasions.
Happy Maki, known for tightly packed, wonderfully fresh sushi burritos, often
travelling around the country at various festivals and street feasts. We adore
their Thai sweet potato roll, and the popcorn buffalo cauliflower is an absolute
must try. We’re also funs of Loving Hut for more flavoursome Asian inspired
Boho Gelato, arguably one of the city’s best-loved ice cream parlours offer dairy-
free flavours, perfect for long summer’s days by the sea. For juice and gloriously
thick smoothies, Wolfox collaborate with 42 Juice serving your nourishing
afternoon fix. We highly recommend their freshly baked bread, think Portobello
mushroom stuffed sourdough bagels.
On the topic of carbohydrates, head to Infinity Foods health food shop if you’re
looking to take home a selection of baked goods, from fluffy cinnamon buns to
chocolate croissants. It’s the best vegan wholesale food shop in Brighton, in our opinion,
and could spend hours browsing the isles for tasty treats and natural beauty
products. Infinity Kitchen is also a must visit for delicious plant-based food, and
only a short walk away.
Whilst you’re wandering the lanes, Wai Kika Moo Kau (cleverly pronounced,
“Why kick a moo cow”) is another great, easy vegetarian option, and a Larder;
the cosiest little café, will warm you up with a glorious bowl of dahl. Lastly, Silo
and their zero waste philosophy means you can eat with clear conscious and
satisfied taste buds.
