Health and wellbeing is something I have become very passionate about in the last few years. One of my favourite things to do is experiment in the kitchen and try out new healthy recipes. But, when it comes to eating out, especially for brunch I do find not a lot of places offer healthy options. So I made it my mission to seek out healthy cafes that have the same eathos as me. While Dublin doesn’t have a huge healthy food scene there are some gems dotted around the city and I thought I’d share my favourites with you all.
If I could eat Tang salads every day, I would. They are a meditation style cafe serving up healthy brunch and lunch options. For brunch, the buckwheat pancakes or Shakshuka are my favourites and for lunch a mixture of their daily salads. Top tip, they have two locations in Dublin city centre and I would recommend going to the Anne Street location as it is a bigger location so a better chance of getting a seat.
A local spot for me, I like coming here for their protein pancakes after pilates on a Saturday and just chill with a massive cup of coffee. They do great vegan and refined sugar-free treats too.
Eathos is my go-to healthy spot for brunch, the acai bowl is my fave or the old millennial reliable Avo toast. This spot also has the best healthy treats ever. It is so close to my office too which is dangerous. Their Paleo muffin (possibly the best muffin I’ve ever had) and pistachio oat bake are my OGs and if I’m feeling bold their white chocolate and raspberry brownie is delish.
Póg is a great spot if you are in town and looking for a healthy spot for brunch/lunch. Their millennial dream dish which is a mini avo toast and mini acai bowl is great for those who are indecisive like me. Also their build your own pancakes are a treat!
Looking for a good spot for a quick healthy lunch around the south side of the city centre then look no further than Industry. Industry is a cool homeware store with a cafe located at the front of the store. They serve up great salads and soups along with hot pot options for lunch.
Meet Me in the Morning
A popular spot at the weekends for brunch but also offers up great breakfast and lunch options during the week. Everything I’ve tried here has been great and the coffee here is also some of the best in Dublin.
Sprout & Co
Sprout is a salad bar that serves up healthy seasonal dishes. Chose from some of their signature salads that change with the seasons or build your own. Sprout is my go-to if I didn’t bring lunch to the office. They also offer up soups and sandwiches along with healthy breakfast options like porridge and chia seed pudding.
Kale & Coco
If you are looking for smoothie bowls in Dublin, then this is the place to come. The Khaleesi is a great option or The Classic Acai. They also do nourish bowls which are a great option if you are looking for healthy lunch options.
Nutbutter was a great healthy cafe that offered awesome brunch, lunch and even dinner options. They closed last year but are reopening in Q2 of 2020. Check their Instagram page to see when they are back in business.
