Medicine Food and Drink
We have our own incredibly talented in-house F&B team at Medicine, who run the Medicine Café, the Apothecafé, Karmaceuticals Bars, and the Cacao bars.
At Medicine, we believe that food is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle, and we are committed to a food offering that supports both individual and community health. Our food philosophy centers around the idea that food is medicine, and we believe that the quality of the food we eat has a direct impact on our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
We are proud to support regenerative food production practices that prioritize sustainable and ethical food production methods, such as organic and biodynamic farming, and regenerative agriculture. By prioritizing these methods, we not only ensure that our food is nutritious and healthy, but we also support the health of our planet and the communities that produce our food.
All of our food is vegetarian, with many vegan options available, which reflects our commitment to promoting a plant-based diet for both personal and planetary health. Our chefs are skilled at creating delicious and nourishing meals that are both satisfying and good for you, using fresh and locally-sourced ingredients.
We also believe that food is a powerful tool for bringing people together in community and celebration, which is why we celebrate the power of food to connect people, nourish our bodies, and heal our planet. Join us at Medicine, where we celebrate the healing power of food and the positive impact it can have on both our personal health and the health of our planet.
The food vision is conceptualized by Chippy of Trewhitts Food, with guidance from the hard working Medicine production team. There is a massive emphasis on vegan, local, organic foods, with a holistic approach towards health, using aspects of fermented foods, sprouting and herbalism to create well balanced nutritional food offerings. This year we will be using mushrooms and vegetables from local producers such as “Bristol fungarium” and “Crops not Shops”
The Medicine Cafe is a sanctuary for those seeking nourishment and healing through food. Led by Chef Kiarash and Nutritionist Alev, we are proud to offer an array of nourishing and sustainable meals made with locally sourced, organic ingredients.
Kiarash, who has been a fixture in the Bristol food scene for over a decade, creates Middle Eastern-inspired cuisine bursting with fresh, vibrant flavors that will leave you feeling energized and satisfied. His years of experience as a cafe owner and festival chef have honed his skills and allowed him to perfect his craft.
The commitment to wellness extends beyond just food; we also offer a range of healing herbal teas, drinks, and coffee curated by Alev, who has extensive knowledge in herbalism and nutrition. Her creations are designed to complement our food and enhance your overall sense of well-being.
At the Medicine Cafe, we serve breakfast from 7:30am and offer delicious, healthy options throughout the day until 10pm. Our menu features a variety of vegan options, all made with locally sourced, organic ingredients that are sure to nourish your body and soul.
We believe that food is medicine, and we take that belief to heart at the Medicine Café. Whether you’re looking for a hearty breakfast, a light lunch, or a satisfying dinner, we have something for everyone.
The Apothecafé is our main cafe’s little sister, offering low cost and delicious dishes for all the family without compromising on quality. Head chef, Phoebe Georgia Allan’s background is in yoga retreat catering, and her current studies in herbal medicine heavily influence the aesthetic and intention of the food to simulatenously promote good health and pleasure. Focusing on beautifying simple dishes like a classic Indian Daal, to ignite all your senses and leave you nourished from within.
The Cacao Bar is run by the incredibly hard working Dilly, a lover of mushrooms and herbs. Get comfy, connect with others and get your natural cacao high everyday and add some hand crafted elixirs if you please! We will have cacao mixed with medicinal mushrooms, immune boosting magic and other tasty additions.
We are thrilled to announce that we have expanded our selection of magical cacao bars for 2023 in response to overwhelming demand.
