Really Nice Place

4 Posted on 05 / 14 / 2014

We ate here each morning before going to Temples festival for about 3-4 mornings. The food was consistently great, a good range to choose from (burgers, chilli, dal, wraps) the burgers and chips are really good, as is the salad (which they put some good effort into!). Really good food at a good price. Quite a few of the items were vegan or had vegan options if you asked.

Right-on eating experience

4 Posted on 02 / 22 / 2014

Roll for Soul is a very right-on eating experience, being a totally vegetarian cafe / restaurant and bike activist group and repair shop. I was there on a cold February Wednesday evening and it was pretty quiet. But that did not detract from the food which was filling and tasty: I had a lentil and nut burger, salad and stonking hot chips (covered in deelicious Aspall vinegar), followed by a slice of coffee and almond cake. Plus a fantastic Southville Hop pale ale by the Bristol Beer Factory: strong and flavoursome. Good honest and pretty cheap food, well worth seeking out and patronising - fully veggie places need the support. And don't forget your bike!

Great cafe very central

5 Posted on 09 / 07 / 2013

Good range of drinks and cakes and small menu with good salad bar, not too expensive. Friendly staff, young founder/chef served food. I love the bike connection too, there's a workshop upstairs and they'll do repairs for you or show you how. Already feels like a really great Bristol place. Much-needed central veg*n cafe.

First visit I just had rooibos tea and cake with friends, second I tried the soul burger. I'll try the lentil and nut burger next time. The mezze looked great too.

Nice wooden tables, all very clean and bright with bikes and bits literally hanging around. Could do with softer lighting for later in the evening, it's all a bit white.

Pros: good food and drink, friendly staff, cic, central location
