Vegetarian breakfast in Dorset

For a while I ran an Instagram and Twitter account called Vegetarian Breakfast to review, you guessed it, vegetarian breakfast options across Dorset. These days I opt for the vegan option where possible (a potential future blog) but here’s the best and worst of what I found for the veggies. Please use the links for latest menus and opening hours.

Boscanova – 650 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, BH1 4BP

4/5 – A lot going on here, all really nice, loses one star for plate layout.


Branksome Beach Pinecliff Road, Poole, BH13 6LP

4/5 – Good line up, good quality, fantastic view (if you get a window seat).

1/5 – What a mess, not even two meat free sausages could save this.


Stewarts Garden CentreBroomhill, Wimborne, BH21 7DE

3/5 – Not bad, quality was fine, went a bit overboard on the beans.

The KitchenPoole Park, Poole, BH15 2SF

5/5 – Full marks, fantastic line up, hard to fault anything here.

3/5 – Beans were a bit stodgy, hash brown was undercooked, possibly a bad day.


Camden6 Bournemouth Road, Poole, BH14 0ES

Haskins Garden CentreFerndown, BH22 9DG

2/5 – Bit boring, mostly fine otherwise.
