Calling all vegans and vegetarians! We have lots of delicious eateries in Somerset to curb your hunger: everything from cleansing juices and breakfasts to three course fine dining
Acorn Vegetarian Kitchen, North Parade Passage in Bath
The award winning Acorn Vegetarian Kitchen is famed for its elegantly prepared, locally sourced vegetarian food. They are featured in the Good Food Guide 2016 and have won a "Best Vegetarian & Vegan Restaurant" award as well. We love the sound of the 'Chocolate and Coffee', a vegan chocolate ganache with an epresso parfait and pink peppercorn crumble.
Chai Walla, Monmouth Street in Bath
The Indian street food café Chai Walla is a new eatery in Monmouth Street that serves Indian-style wraps with fragrant and moreish fillings and other tasty snacks. This is the perfect place to grab lunch before grabbing a seat and admiring the city's beautiful architecture.
Chapel Arts Café, Lower Borough Walls in Bath
The 100% vegetarian Chapel Arts Café serves delicious homemade food in a cosy café environment. Tuck into an oven baked flat bread made from scratch with delicious toppings from around the world: the Mediterannean is sprinkled with spinach, olives, sundried tomato, aubergine, red onion and red pepper salsa, or try the spicy Mexican, or fragrant Moroccan instead. For those with a sweet tooth, there are plenty of delectable cakes to enjoy too!
The Green Rocket Café, Pierrepont Street in Bath
Pop in at any time of day to The Green Rocket Café that serves breakfast and lunch, as well as dinner from Wednesday to Saturday, featuring ingredients that make the most out of locally sourced and seasonal produce. Take a seat in the cafe's vibrant, informal setting and choose from a menu of inventive dishes served throughout the day. The mashed avocado and Bloody Mary Salsa on sourdough toast sounds likes a delicious way to start the day.
Indian Temptation, High Street in Bath
Enjoy the authentic taste of India at Indian Temptation, the vegetarian restaurant that aims to bring real Indian flavours to its patrons. Order a Masala Dosa pancake filled with fragrant potato and greenpeas for a traditional treat and follow it up with some Kulfi, the Indian ice cream.
The Garden Café, Stony Street in Frome
The Garden Café serves delicious fresh vegetarian food with everything from fried breakfasts, freshly baked pizzas, pies and burritos. After wandering through the pretty, winding streets of Frome, stop at this ethical café for a coffee crafted with organic milk and a decadent slice of devil's chocolate cake.
