The healthiest, tastiest and cheapest Dublin has on offer:
Since 2006, KC Peaches has been the home to cheap healthy eaters on the go. Guests can pick and choose between a full menu or a ‘bowl’, where you can pack everything you fancy into a sit-down or to-go dish for €6.50.
With four locations around the city centre there are no excuses to cheat and head for a Big Mac.
Sugar free, dairy-free, gluten-free, yeast-free and wheat-free has never tasted so good. Blazing Salads’ exotic flavours and textures make salads how they should be; healthy, tasty and cheap.
The price at this Drury Street joint is determined by weight and it is far too easy to get carried away with yourself due to such a large selection, therefore, self-discipline is necessary!
If you have been anywhere near the city centre recently you will notice an outrageous amount of cubed green bags marked Chopped.
This is especially true since ‘Chopped’ opened its new store at the bottom of Grafton Street – it’s become a fashion necessity in Dublin these days and with delicious salads from €6, it’s no surprise.
With a location in the ISFC and newly opened one on Baggot Street, Borlottie is a super cheap, super healthy spot for grab and go salads, hot boxes and smoothies!
Salads start at €3.15 so expect queues around lunch time.
Lotts & Co
Lotts & Co on Bath Avenue has quickly become my favourite spot in Dublin to pick up my healthy bits and bobs.
From superfood extracts to MCT oil they really have it all – and better still, you can pop in and get a box of delicious salads to go 7 days a week from €3.45.
Self-proclaimed unpretentious (though some would disagree) coffee house and café, The Fumbally on Clanbrassil Street/Fumbally Lane prides itself on serving delicious health-conscious dishes. The menu is limited but you can’t complain because it’s done right.
Some of the lunches on offer here can be ritzy enough – but there are cracking salads available that will fill you up all day and leave you with change from a tenner all the same.
A different type of liquid lunch is taking storm across Dublin. Juicing is real and it’s here to stay.
Sprout makes ‘juicing’ a treat, rather than a chore. From their relatively new location at the bottom of Dawson Street and their even newer Mount Street spot, they serve their famous, filling juices from €4.95 along with a variety of healthy bites.
The falafel and guacamole has to be tried at least once.
