Have your say

Looking for vegetarian and vegan food in Portsmouth and Southsea? Here are five top places to try.

Smile Café

49 Marmion Road

Smile Café is a friendly little spot which serves home-cooked breakfasts, lunches and dinners with both vegetarian and vegan options. The reasonably-priced breakfast menu is particularly good - choose from a big or small vegetarian or vegan breakfast.


108 Palmerston Road

Although not exclusively a vegan or vegetarian restaurant, family-run Soprano’s Ristorante Italiano has a wide selection of clearly-marked vegetarian options on the menu. Try the sweet pepper salad.

Pie & Vinyl

61 Castle Road

Pie & Vinyl is worth visiting for the décor, ambience and cracking soundtrack alone, but they also have a wonderful selection of veggie and vegan pies including the Notdog Pie.


59 Marmion Road

Perfect for breakfast or lunch, Capers has a great range of veggie-friendly meals on offer. You’ll find the likes of freshly-prepared goat’s cheese salads or Welsh rarebit on the lunch menu, or you can tuck into a vegetarian breakfast.

Southsea Coffee Co

63 Osborne Road

This place might already be on your ‘great coffee’ radar, but it has a lot of food options for vegetarians and vegans too. Porridge, granola and waffles can all be served vegan-friendly.
