I’m not a vegan myself but after extensive research (and huge thanks to everyone who has helped with this), here’s my edit of the best plant based options in and around Derbyshire.
DEDICATED VEGAN PLACES
Plant on Saddlergate in Derby is a 100% plant based café and bar which gets rave reviews for both it’s food and service.
Sin Carne Cantina is a vegan, Latin inspired café-bar in Matlock Bath. Everything looks utterly delicious. They’re a new business who has been hit hard by 2020 so please do give them a follow and share their posts if you’re at all interested in their offerings.
The Vegan Spice Company in Tissington is currently offering a take away dish every weekend. It’s provided cold with reheating instructions. Delivery and collection available.
Sound Bites in Derby – a 100% vegan shop specialising in organic and fair trade products and Yaffle café upstairs.
Grandela Artisan Treats – vegan bliss balls and cheesecakes from Chesterfield artisan market or for local delivery/collection from S40 (and bliss balls can be posted nationwide).
VEGGIE & VEGAN PLACES
Scarthin Books – this famously quirky bookshop in Cromford has a hidden gem vegan and vegetarian café. Currently closed but would ordinarily be serving up vegan soups, homity pies and cakes etc.

Just outside Derbyshire… Pom Kitchen in Sheffield’s Sharrowvale is THE most instagrammably fabulous vegan and veggie eatery. Open from the 3rd Jan for takeaway treats.
OTHER PLACES TO TRY FOR GREAT VEGAN OPTIONS:
