Vegan Brighton

As Vegans visiting any new place you need to plan ahead. When I booked a short stay in Brighton I immediately consulted the Twitter Hive Mind to find the best vegan restaurants in Brighton and the response was amazing. Brighton is a veritable hub of plant based, vegetarian and vegan eateries and for the few days we stayed in the beautiful seaside resort at the fantastic Premier Inn and sampled as many as we could.

Ready to eat our way around Vegan Bighton

Here are my recommendations:

The Loving Hut North laines

I'm kicking off with my absolutely favourite. The Loving Hut is more bistro/cafe than restaurant but the menu offers everything from a full cooked breakfast, to burgers and sushi. 

We ate there a few times as it was delicious and the service is just brilliant. Definitely our top dishes were the Peking style mock duck and rice, the sushi and the shared platter which included spring rolls and their version of prawn crackers called "Little clouds"  If you eat in one place in Brighton make it here.

Waiki kamoo kau North Laines
Staying on the North laines we nipped into Waiki Kamoo kau for drinks and highly recommend the fruit smoothies. 

This cute little bistro offers tons of vegan options but it was the Vegan  smoothies which really tickled our pickles. I particularly enjoyed the "Big 5" which included all the greens including kale and pineapple. Delicious and perfect fuel for a busy day of shopping. 

Purezza 12 St James Street Brighton
No vegans visit to Brighton would be complete without a visit to Purezza the UK's first plant based pizzeria. 

Since becoming vegan we have really craved pizza and it can be  hard to find a decent vegan pizza. Purezza serves amazing plant based pizza magic and we loved it.
Baba had her usual marinara, Nicky chose the Quattro Stagioni which included Artichoke hearts, Black olives and chestnut mushrooms and I went for the Hawaiana which is your classic pineapple with (Seitan) salami. Service was quick, the pizzas were delicious and our Simpson inspired pizza cravings satisfied.

V-Bites 14 East Street Brighton
if you are looking for some great Vegan Burger action in Brighton then V-Bites is definitely for you. This light airy cafe is only minutes away from the Lanes, has a fab fast food vegan menu and plays some very cool music. 
Nicky couldn't resist the Elvis burger which includes peanut butter and fried banana. Its a real showstopper-very fitting for a tribute to the King. if you order this prepare to not need to eat for the rest of the day.
