If you’re looking for a vegetarian café in Bristol, then why not head for beautiful Clifton? The stylish and airy East Village Café is 100% vegetarian with plenty of vegan and GF options. They also serve a mean pitaya latte.

The setting

East Village Café is in the heart of beautiful Clifton Village, surrounded by independent shops and cafés. It’s five minutes walk from Brunel’s iconic Suspension Bridge, the Observatory and the Zoo.

The space

The café is in a quiet courtyard under an arch. Outside there’s a large selection of pastel blue chairs and tables. Indoors is equally as light with high ceilings, wall sized windows and white walls. There are two large eating areas decorated with plants and pale wooden furniture and a serving bar featuring delicious cakes lines one wall.

It has feels relaxed and a retreat from the busy city centre.

 

What else?

The staff are helpful, you order at the bar and they serve at your table. They use paper straws and provide complimentary decanters of tap water.

The fresh juice test

East Village Café has fresh OJ, kombucha and a range of smoothies. We decided to review the Hula Hoop Shake – a light refreshing blend of pear, strawberry, ginger, hemp and apple juice. It was delicious. We also couldn’t resist one of their signature superfood lattes. The choice includes Blue Skies, Red Velvet, Matcha and Turmeric.

We went for the Pink Pitaya which was not too sweet and sprinkled with pretty rose petals.

What we ate

The plant-based menu is extensive. It features shakshouka, açai bowls, porridge and salads. We went for brunch and ordered the Maple and Coconut Pancakes with fresh berries and the Savoury Corn and Quinoa Waffle with extra eggs. . The pancakes were light and fluffy and packed with fruit. The waffles were crunchy and topped with perfectly cooked poached eggs.

The bill

Pink pitaya latte £4.00
Hula Hoop Shake  £4.95
Pancakes with extra fruit £8.50 + £2.50
Waffles with extra egg  £10 +£1.50
