A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to go to the Bristol Bloggers brunch at Beets n Roots Cafe on Cotham Hill to sample their new spring menu and hear a talk from nutritional therapist Rosie Letts who they collaborated with on the menu.
It was a gorgeous sunny day and there were lots of familiar blogger faces there but I wasn’t feeling tip-top due to a tummy bug caught from the children so very uncharacteristically pushed my food around my plate.
However, Beets N Roots invited us all back for a complimentary brunch with a friend so I invited my friend and lifelong vegetarian Rachel to go back with me so I could get another chance to enjoy the incredible food.
Beets N Roots is a quirky, rustic little spot tucked away near the top of Cotham Hill amongst bakeries, coffee shops and charity shops. It’s a vibrant area in the heart of student-land and one of my favourite streets for mooching. At the front is a sunken terrace that really comes into its own when the sun shines as it was today.
The menu focuses on health and vitality through nutritious, organic plant based food. Aimed at healthy living enthusiasts and recovering party-goers alike, everything on the menu is designed to leave you feeling energised. You can choose from smoothies and smoothie bowls, raw cold pressed juices, buddha bowls, salads, wraps and chilli bowls to eat in or grab and go.
We ordered a pot of earl grey tea for two and decided to go all out with the vegan All Mighty Breakfast which was absolutely delicious. The scrambled tofu was the real stand out for me and I almost cleared my whole plate as I just couldn’t stop eating.
We couldn’t resist ordering smoothie bowls for dessert so we decided to get one Acai bowl and one Supergreen smoothie bowl to share. The Acai bowl was fruity and tarte and very filling from the addition of the avocado. The flavour of the ginger really came through in the Supergreen bowl. The goji berries and crunchy apple added a good amount of chewiness and crunch.
Thank you to Beets N Roots for the amazing food. I love supporting fully vegetarian establishments to I’ll definitely be returning and adding you to my list of regular veggie lunch spots.
