This week I went to visit my good friend Nelly in her new home town of Hastings. We did a little bit of research on HappyCow beforehand about vegan eats and I’m happy to say there’s lots of choice!
I was only there for a day trip but scoped out a lot of potential eats for another trip. One cafe, Bullet Coffee house was only open on Saturday but looked really promising!
We ended up grabbing some lunch at Flavours of India, an Indian restaurant with tonnes of vegan options.
The thali at lunch is only £7.95 – you pick 3 dishes from the set menu and it comes with rice and bread. I had the chana masala, saag aloo and vegetarian samosa. Everything was delicious and really set us up for what ended up being a 6 mile walk around Hastings!

You can find the menu for Flavours of India here.
Later on after trooping around Hastings (which is beautiful!) we stopped at Penbuckle’s Delicatessen.
Now that I’m a coffee snob I got really excited by the big sign outside that said they served Monmouth Coffee. I wasn’t too sure if they would have soya milk but they did! Checking the cake cabinet I saw they had a vegan cake but it was all gone…so I asked if they had more. Turned out two of the flapjacks were vegan! So I ended up with a big slice of apricot flapjack. The coffee was delicious as was the flapjack.The deli has a really lovely, cosy room at the back with seating and a fire place. It was a welcome rest for us after all of our walking!
