As vegetarians, we’re spoilt for choice in Bristol as there as tons of non-meat eater friendly places to eat and drink. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like to try a new one!
Located on Cotham Hill, an area full of independent shops and restaurants, Beets n’ Roots is tucked away below a therapy centre in a period building.
Despite visiting the area lots, we’ve somehow managed to miss this cafe with its wooden terrace and colourful cushions which on that pleasant spring morning was the perfect suntrap.
Inside it’s a small, cosy and quirky higgledy piggledy space with upcycled furniture and vegan cookbooks
On arrival, I was greeted by a tray of perhaps the most colourful juices I’ve ever seen which, being a blogger event, was surrounded by keen influencers taking photos from above.
I of course, not wanting to miss such as an Instagrammable opportunity, joined in before opting for the bright orange option.
The carrot, orange, turmeric and ginger concoction was super yummy and made me feel instantly healthy!
For food, I perused the extensive menu and opted for one of the small plates; scrambled egg with spinach, basil and garlic roasted tomatoes and served with toasted flatbread.
Again, the ingredients were super fresh and full of flavour.
I did get some food envy though as several of my fellow bloggers opted for The All Mighty Breakfast; an explosion of veggie delights including a flat Mushroom sprinkled with china rose sprouts, garlic sauteed kale and roasted tomatoes. No soggy fried bread and burnt bacon in this establishment.
Beets n’ Roots is as far removed from a greasy spoon as you can get and proves that fresh and healthy vegetable ingredients don’t have to be boring!
