The City I call home and one of the rising stars of the vegan food scene. If you like London but find it too crowded then Brighton is a great compromise. It’s very much like a ‘London by the sea’ and has so many great restaurants and cafes.

My favourite places in no particular order

Moshimo – Bartholomew Square, Brighton, BN1 1JS

If you love good Japanese food then you absolutely must visit one of my all-time favourite restaurants. It’s not all sushi and it has a classy feel while still making you feel right at home. The mock duck and sushi boat ara must, they’re amazing. This is how sushi should should always be eaten when it looks this good.

Purezza – 12 St James’s Street, Brighton, BN2 1RE

The ultimate carb lovers paradise, I have loved this restaurant for years since before their London branch existed. If cheese and pizza is your thing you’ll love it here and if not they’ve still got you covered. Don’t forget to try their incredible cheesy dough balls and tiramisu.

Green Kitchen – 8 Preston Road, Brighton, BN1 4QF

This lovely little cafe is tucked away by Preston Park and has some of the best food in Brighton. They even make and sell their own bacon! Which is amazing btw (some of my fav vegan bacon). They do everything from a Sunday roast to burgers and pancakes. The full English or the Sunday roast and my favourite juice (Carrot, apple, beetroot & ginger) are what I usually stop in for. They usually have some delicious sweet treats from Rosina Makes at the counter as well which I can never resist.

Smorl’s – Open Market at Marshall’s Row, Brighton BN1 4JU

If you’re obsessed with hummus then we can be friends, and also you’ll love Smorl’s. Their passion is hummus, good vegan food & being mindful of single use plastic. The fully loaded falafel and hummus salad or pitta is my go to when I eat here and I always take my bamboo lunchbox for takeaways. Don’t forget to take a look at the grocery items on sale including their hummus and delicious lucky cat fudge too.

Ginger & Dobbs – 31 East St, Shoreham-by-Sea BN43 5ZD

This is one of my favourite places which I’m so lucky to have close to home. One side is a store with seasonal locally grown produce and the other a lovely cafe with great vegan options. The avo and tomatoes on toast, the chocolate brownie and iced coffee are my favourite things to have here. A charming location not far from the waterfront with a great health food store next door too to stock up on all the vego bars.
