It’s a known fact that Brighton is one of the best places for vegans in the UK. With a wide range of restaurants, cafes and stores that are either fully vegan or provide vegan options, us vegans are never short of places to eat. As we are partially Brighton based (we’re there at least every other week) we though we’d put together out top 5 places to satiate your hunger!
1) Purezza (http://purezza.co.uk)
Purezza has had a mention or two on this blog before, and if we could, we would probably be there 24/7. Purezza are a plant based Italian restaurant that provide vegan versions of the classic Italian dishes like pizza and pasta. They also offer burgers, raw dishes and a range of desserts. Honestly, if you ever find yourself in Brighton, you HAVE to try this place – their food is insanely good (genuinely the best pizza and garlic bread I have ever eaten) and popular with vegans and omnis alike.

2) VBites (http://www.vbites.com)
Vbites is an entirely vegan cafe/restaurant in the heart of busy Brighton. I have eaten here several times. However, as you may be aware, I am partial to burgers, so my review may be a little burger-heavy. Fortunately, they offer several! They are delicious and very reasonably priced. They also serve pizza, wraps, muffins, hotdog, salads and a selection of brekkie and dessert options. I have also been reliably informed by pizza fiend Chloe that the pizzas are great too!) My recommendation: pop down and try out the Elvis burger!

3) Infinity Foods (http://infinityfoodsretail.coop)
Infinity Foods is a health food store that also has a cafe nearby, Infinity Foods Kitchen. The selection of vegan products in-store is huge, and very reasonably priced too, something that is rare to find in a health food store. They also have a range of products to take away, such as sandwiches, pizza, cakes and bread, and similar items can be found in Infinity Foods Kitchen, along with a daily menu that consists of breakfast & lunch options, cakes, smoothies and various other goodies. With their great tasting food (special mention to the BBQ tofu and avo hummus sandwich…I love you), their always lovely staff and great prices, Infinity Foods definitely earned a place on our list.

4) BeFries (https://www.facebook.com/BeFries.Official/)
You’re out on the town. You may or may not have had a few little drinkies. You’re feeling peckish. Your omni friends are chowing down on a kebab. You feel sad. Your stomach is ANGRY…
BUT FEAR NOT. BeFries is here! It’s open until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, and their fries are AMAZING. They are crispy and delicious and are served with a variety of sauce options (please note, not all are vegan).
Drunk or not – these are a must try for all enthusiasts of the most popular potato snack in the world! (please note, I have no evidence to back up this wild claim. Crisps may well be number one…)

5) Loving Hut (http://lovinghut.co.uk)
Loving Hut is a chain of vegan eateries scattered across the UK (and the rest of the world!). I was lucky enough to eat here in Paris. I tried the burger and the Spaghetti Bolognese and they were both excellent (as much as I love a burger, the Bolognese won my heart that day). Having had a browse at the various websites, it seems the menu varies somewhat from restaurant to restaurant. Brighton has two locations. They serve an amazing array of hearty vegan food, including several burgers, lasagna, fish & chips, wraps, and a selection of desserts. You absolutely must visit one of the many Loving Huts, whether you’re in the UK or abroad.

It’s difficult to narrow it down to just 5 places. Not to mention the fact that we haven’t visited every vegan eatery in Brighton. The fact is, if you are in Brighton, there are many many wonderful vegan options. So overall, we recommend you pay the pretty seaside town a visit and try all the great food for yourself. You won’t regret it. 💚
