There is something special about the month of September because this is the month you can catch some spectacular sunsets around Torbay.

At the start of the month, the sun sets just before 8pm and the sunsets get gradually earlier.

By the end of September, the sun will set shortly before 7pm.

This makes perfect timing for grabbing some food and watching the sunset over Torbay.

The question now is, where is good to go to get some food and watch an awesome sunset?

Being a massive vegan foodie myself, here are some of my top picks, in no particular order.

Even if you are not vegan, there is no reason to not try the food because their dishes are truly awesome.
