A vegan guide to Jersey

Friendly people, inviting landscapes, intriguing culture – Jersey is a gem of a place to explore. About nine miles by five, it’s an ideal short-break destination, with plenty to see and do.

Whatever season you visit, pack hiking boots, because there are myriad walking opportunities. Whether you prefer a gentle beach stroll or more challenging trek on rugged cliff paths, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

As for the vegan scene, we discovered an exclusively vegan café in St Helier, while many places offer a vegan menu or range of options.

Where to eat

The Sinful Vegan

This cosy café-cum-restaurant is, as far as I could tell, the only 100% plant-based eatery on the island. Situated in the heart of St Helier, Jersey’s main town, Italian-born Clarissa Negro opened Sinful Vegan in 2018 and has never looked back.

Black and white are the dominant colours here with pops of green courtesy of countless plants dotted around the restaurant.

Around 95% of the food dished up is prepared on the premises, using local produce, with the Ultimate Sinful Burger the most popular item on the menu.

I chose the vegan hot dawg (seitan sausage with crispy onions, ketchup and mustard served with chips, £9.50), followed by delicious chocolate cake.

Other main course options include Kentucky No Chicken Fillet Burger, Classic Burger (soy patty garnished with lettuce, tomato, red onion and sauce, £10.50) and Rice Rolls (£7.90). Breakfasts, sandwiches, desserts and plenty of drinks are available.

Open: Mon-Sat 10am-5pm (once the alcohol licence is granted, hopes are to open Friday and Saturday evenings).
