The world’s most vegan city, Bristol, will soon welcome a brand new vegan deli and cafe.
Bristol was an early adopter of the plant-based diet, and recently celebrated being voted the number one city in the world for veganism by Chef’s Pencil in January.
Now the green capital of the UK is about to welcome the cities first vegan deli and cafe as Flip gets set to open its doors on the site of a former Indian takeaway on North Street.
The cafe will serve up a selection of simple, yet exquisite dishes and diners can choose from a range of delicious deli treats to take home.
Bristol is a city that has long champion sustainable practices and working with local suppliers and Flip are proud to be working with so many of Bristol’s small, local artisan food producers.
The environment is an issue close to owner Sophie Fox’s heart and she plans for the vegan eatery to be plastic free by serving up takeaways in compostable or reusable packaging.
Speaking to local news outlet Bristol Post, owner Sophie, who ran Café Create at The Create Centre for the past eight years, said: “At Café Create I’ve been busy developing a vegan range and I wanted to take it to the wider public. It feels like North Street is a good place for this and it will be good to take on a site which has been empty for so long.
“It’s going to be a big jump going from the safety of the Create Centre to the high street but I’m really excited and can’t wait to get going.
“I did some research and couldn’t find another dedicated vegan café and deli in the UK, so tentatively made the claim that this will be the first. The deli counter will be our showpiece and everything we sell will be made by us on site.”
Flip will open at 81 North Street, Bristol, BS3 1ES in March 2019.
