5 clean eateries for a SAVAGE family lunch in Dublin city


Looking for grub that’s as tasty as it is nutritious? Little havens of clean eating can be found all over Dublin city if you know where to look. 

Here’s our pick of the very best…



Alchemy Juice Company in Brown Thomas, on Grafton street

Why I like it: This place is the spot for healthy eating in Dublin. The super nutritional experts at the helm have a cult following for their green food porn offerings. Their ‘Brain Food Salad’ makes me brain so well during the week. Kudos to their bro’s over in Coffee Shop ‘Joe’, on Montague Street for the tip-off. In love with this place.

What to expect: Imagine raw, cold-pressed and unpastuerised juices. ‘Mean Greens’ and ‘Anti-Everything’ are the most delicious two juices on the menu to beat the Autumn sniffles, but the rest are too good not to taste. OM-azing.

The Fumbally Café


The Fumbally Café, off Clanbrassil Street, close to St. Patrick’s Cathedral

Why I like it: Run by an uber hip couple and their buds, this art and culture café encompasses great clean eating, aspirational living and the best darn coffee in Dublin.

What to expect: Fumbally Eggs are a must-eat and you’ll die and go to heaven after scoffing the Falafel plate. The big news is they are opening a restaurant this year.

The Punnet Health Store


The Punnet Health Store, At the bottom of Camden Street, on Richmond Street

Why I like it: What do you get when you mix one part former professional Irish Rugby star, one part nutrition and two parts food knowledge? Two boys with the perfect ingredients to set the clean living status quo for the southside of Dublin, that’s what. Coupled with their ability to hone in on dietery requirements that will satisfy the hungriest commuters, they also have a programme for the occasional detox.

What to expect: The Beast, The Superman, The Brekkie, The Hulk. I’m not talking cartoons here people, I’m talking wraps. The wrap of your dreams is inside the fridge in The Punnet. Addicted.



BiBi’s, Off Lombard Street

Why I like it: You’ve gotta try it to believe the hype, but just make sure you’ve just been paid and expect to pay top dolla. It’s completely worth it.

What to expect It’s a bit posh, but hey, that shouldn’t stop you. The food is dreamy.



Govinda’s, At the top of Aungier Street

Why I like it: Run by Hare Krishnas since 1990

What to expect: Expect to see me. I’ve been to this establishment so many times through my college years and the flavour has never faltered. The place blows everyone else out of the water. I know the owner so long she practically reared me. The food is a fusion of Eastern flavours and vegetarian delicacies. Get the small plate with everything on it. Tell them Karen sent you.
