Vegetarian Restaurants Canterbury

Vegetarian Restaurants Canterbury:

Are you tired of eating the same old bland, uninspiring vegetarian dishes? If you are looking for imaginative fresh vegetarian and vegan dishes that are integral to our menu, rather than an afterthought, look no further than Cafe du Soleil in Canterbury.

At Cafe du Soleil, we are proud to source most of our ingredients from Kent. After all we are in the garden of England so it makes sense. We believe that the freshest ingredients make the most delicious meals, and we are dedicated to creating dishes that showcase the best of what the region and our mediterranean cuisine has to offer.

Our menu is filled with dishes that are both hearty and healthy, like our Aubergine, Ricotta & Mint Ravioli made with Homemade pasta, tomato sauce, pecorino, basil oil. Or why not try our Porcini & Mushroom Risotto, made with roast garlic portabello mushroom stuffed with spinach & farmhouse cheddar, cooked in our huge wood burning oven?



At Cafe du Soleil, Vegetarian and Vegan food is integral to our menu, not just an afterthought. We are very proud of the plant based and meat free food we serve.

Some of our dishes are authentic Mediterranean classics, whilst others have been created by our chef. Most of our vegetarian dishes can easily be made vegan, including our pizzas, as all of our food is cooked freshly to order.
