Vegetarian & Vegan Options

Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate have a growing number of eateries offering delicious vegetarian and vegan cuisine...

Don't worry if you missed Veganuary this year...there's never been a better time to embrace vegetarian and vegan food choices.

In fact, the greatest change that individuals can make to reduce the effects of climate change on our planet - and help to fight poverty, hunger, and inequality globally - is to become vegetarian or vegan.

Whether you've already made the change, are thinking about a plant-based diet, or just want to try something new, there's plenty to choose from around Thanet's cafes, takeaways, and restaurants...

From relaxing lunches, afternoon teas and evening meals, to seaside ice cream parlour treats and fish & chip shops, you'll enjoy a full range of delicious vegetarian and vegan food in our wide choice of eateries...

With around 3.1 million vegetarians and 2.5 million vegans now in the UK, it's never been easier to find great places to eat and drink.
