Herbivore Vegan Deli is set to be "possibly the world's smallest vegan deli" once it opens in Bristol's Cargo containers in the coming weeks


Herbivore Vegan Deli is the latest plant-based venture set to join Bristol’s vegan restaurants.

The vegan deli will offer artisan plant-based produce from vegan businesses using sustainable ingredients.

What’s more, the Bristol vegan deli will be managed by mother and daughter duo Janice and Danielle Heskett

Bristol’s latest independent store will open at Cargo 2 at Wapping Wharf, where it will replace John Kelly 1880+, a jeweller and silverware producer.

Yet to reveal a menu, Herbivore teased social media with a board of artisan vegan cheeses, tarts, and chutneys that are likely to be on offer.

Herbivore’s post caption read: “We can’t wait to join such a vibrant and eclectic group of amazing independents.”

The new deli jokingly describes itself as “possibly the world’s smallest vegan deli” to its social media followers.

“It’s a very special place”

Speaking with Bristol World, Janice shared: “We are so excited to be opening our vegan deli in Wapping Wharf, it’s a very special place.”

“We moved to Bristol ten years ago and instantly fell in love with the food scene here; it’s so refreshing for a community to actually embrace and support small, local independents.”

Additionally, Stuart Hatton, Managing Director of Wapping Wharf’s developer company Umberslade, added: “Janice and Danielle are hugely committed to creating something special at Herbivore and we feel it will complement the other independent businesses at Cargo perfectly.

Herbivore is set to open at the end of the month.

Vegan dining in Bristol

Being a vegan in Bristol is far from difficult. In fact, 2019 saw Bristol crowned the Vegan Capital of the World.

The city centre of Bristol and beyond is bursting with independent, vibrant plant-based eateries offering food inspired by cuisines across the world.

Iconic restaurants from the city include Koocha Mezze Bar, Vx, Oowee Vegan, and Fi Real.

If you’re planning a trip to the South West, be sure to add Bristol to your stop.
