Spring is springing! What better time to recommit to that New Year’s Resolution? Or, if you just want to know where to go to find healthier food in Bristol, luckily there are plenty of options:


238 North Street, Southville BS3 1JD | Mon-Sat: 10.30am-9pm, Sunday: 11am-8pm

A little bit of a Bristol secret, Yafo is a truly Levantine café specialising in authentic falafel, you have to try this place and its Levantine delights with a modern twist -  prepared with great attention to detail. Everything here is vegetarian or vegan and very very yummy, from the shakshuka to the market burgers and ‘chicken’ skewers from the gyro. As well as coffees and cold drinks, they make a great range of smoothies and milkshakes, including the ‘Blueberry Pleasure’ smoothie and ‘Chocolate Banana Power’ Milkshake!

Better Food

Multiple locations | Mon-Fri: 8am-6pm, Sun: 10am-5pm

Better Food began as an organic delivery service in 1992, but has now expanded to include three health-food shops with cafés that serve up tasty and healthy treats. On offer is a plethora of lighter salads, hearty stews and soups which are made daily on site. The deli also offers a range of locally produced ingredients including artisan cheeses, olives, cooked meats and other delights. They are a great choice for a coffee or lunch break, and you can also stock up on nutritious foods which can form the basis of a healthy new year’s diet.

Five Grains

39 Baldwin Street, Bristol, BS1 1RB | Weekdays 8am-4pm, weekends 8.30am-4pm

Five Grains is a fantastic option for those on a diet who are getting bored of the same limp salad every lunch time and want to try something new. The café specialises in Lebanese street food, particularly the Manouche, which is a pressed dough baked with wild herbs and topped with salad. Sweet versions are also available, which are topped with natural ingredients such as nuts and honey.

This café is also great for those who have chosen to give the vegan diet a go as the smoothie menu is full of wholesome, dairy-free options alongside juices and a range of interesting teas.
