Vegetarian restaurants in Somerset: 12 of the best places

PUBLISHED: 10:35 23 January 2018 | UPDATED: 11:21 23 January 2018


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.

Beyond the Kale, Green Park Station in Bath

Located in the bustling Green Park Station, Beyond the Kale is a vegan juice bar offering healthy and fresh juices and ‘blends’ for an energising boost in your day. There's also a tempting array of homemade cakes at the counter - a perfectly healthy balance, right?

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.

Excalibur Café, High Street in Glastonbury

With ethically sourced ingredients and a strong focus on health and body nourishment, Excalibur Café provides delicious, and unique dishes, and shares the importance of a plant-based, organic diet. The menu is a colourful array of exciting options; think big breakfasts, sourdough pizzas packed with tempting fillings and hearty gourmet sandwiches.

Rainbows End Café, High Street in Glastonbury

Rainbows End Café has been serving innovative, meat-free dishes for over 25 years. Whoever said vegetarian food was boring clearly hasn't enjoyed a Mediterranean vegetable and goats cheese filo pie with garlic potatoes or sampled the tasty homemade cakes from this award-winning café.

Toucan Café, The Parade in Minehead

Serving everything from light lunches to fresh juices, Toucan Café is also passionate about providing a warm and friendly service. Located above Toucan Wholefoods, there are four rooms to relax in and enjoy a vegetarian curry, quiche or just chat with friends over a fairtrade coffee or fresh juice. You can also have Toucan to go with the takeaway service!

The Good Earth, Priory Road in Wells

Come to The Good Earth for the stylish interiors and stay for the atmosphere and scrumptious food which has been served for over 40 years. With two tasty main courses that change daily alongside the popular pizzas and quiches, jacket potatoes and freshly made salads, you will be back for more at this rustic café.

F.east, Millhouse on Rose Mills Industrial Estate in Ilminster

Having recently moved to the Rose Mills Industrial Estate, visitors can still expect the same warm welcome and laidback atmosphere and an extensive menu of delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes that they've always been used to at F.east. Even the most avid meat-eaters couldn't turn their nose up here!
