Favourites on its menu include filled pitas with hummus, falafel and salad as well as shakshuka made with aubergine and fava beans.
The chain advertises itself as "plant-based" - but for peace of mind, this means everything they sell is vegan.
Humpit Northampton has stated it will be cashless - and will only accept electronic transactions.
The national chain has found success on university campuses and in the high streets of cities like Manchester, Edinburgh and York, as well as the Corn Exchange in Leeds.
The shop opened for select customers from St Giles Street and food blogs last night.
The restaurant has opened on the site of the former MACE newsagents in St Gile's Street.
The Humpit in Northampton is the first and only franchise in the Midlands.
