This morning, Daf and I sneaked a couple of hours off work – how dare we?! An acquaintance of ours opened a café in Bangor two days ago and we felt it was time to pop in to see how it was going.
I should explain – this is no ordinary café: Lesley is a personal trainer and dietary specialist who spotted a gap in the market – a very big gap: ‘Follow Your Bliss’ is entirely gluten-free and the food is all very carefully sourced.
Even the coffee is selected internationally, then roasted in Groeslon – look for ‘Poblado’ on the internet. I had an Americano (with lactose free milk) and a lemon macaroon and they were both superb – the coffee was the best I have tasted in a long time, possibly ever and the macaroon was fresh, moist and very tasty. Daf, with a larger appetite (nobody mentioned the work greedy!) had two coffees and a ‘Bliss Me Up’ sweet crepe with everything on it – I think it worked!!! It wasn’t even a guilty pleasure – all the ingredients were fresh and healthy.>
The café is small and very welcoming and whether you live gluten-free or not, we can heartily recommend a visit. We’ll be back, for sure!!!
You can find them at www.followyourblisspt.com 47 High Street, Bangor. LL57 1NR. 01248 361700.
Enjoy… Dorothy Russell
