Tune up your fixie and grab breakfast or lunch for less than a fiver at this community driven workshop/café

Bristol’s cleverly named community bike workshop also doubles up as a café and event space serving wholesome vegetarian food. Sitting inconspicuously on Quay Street in amongst what’s left of the See No Evil graffiti legacy, you get a good idea of Roll For the Soul’s character just from its location.

Inside, the main café area is bright, airy and a bit rough around the edges, in the kind of rugged way you'd expect from somewhere that doubles up as a bike workshop.

The menu is small, but offers all you would expect for a predominantly day-time café (the kitchen closes at 5pm Monday–Tuesday and 8pm Wednesday–Saturday). Breakfasts include a full veggie breakfast and halloumi and fried egg bap, while lunch has more of a Middle Eastern influence. Soups and mains change daily, but you will always find Middle Eastern-inspired wraps, salads and mezze to choose from.

The wifi is free and the milk organic, so this is a popular spot with local creatives and freelancers. Even less surprising when you consider that both breakfast and lunch can be bought for less than £5 each.
