Follow Your Bliss Café have announced plans to move to a larger premises on Bangor High Street. There are also plans to create a wellness centre for Bangor, which will include yoga studios and several therapy rooms that will focus on health and well being.

Established in 2015, Follow Your Bliss provides tasty food that is free from gluten and with the minimal use of processed oils and refined sugar. The café strives to create a menu and environment that supports health and sustainability for both the local community and the planet, and also tries to use local food providers, promoting them and using local produce in their prepared food.

The new café, which plans to open in June, will be open at the premises of the former ‘Two Guys from Brussels’ shop, which closed at the end of last year.

Follow Your Bliss proprietor Lesley Wills said: “I have just taken on the lease for the new much larger Follow Your Bliss Café in Bangor.

“Epic is an understatement but such a needed one. We are so busy and cramped these days that people just can’t get in, some lunch times it’s almost painful, to watch the squeezing that goes on, our workshops are over subscribed all in all we are cramped.

“The new Follow Your Bliss will be amazing, a much larger café space with lots more seating, with the same yummy menu, all gluten free and more take-aways veggie and vegan. The first task is to create the ground floor café in just under three months.

“After time and with a sufficient cash flow, we are going to launch a crowdfunding bid in the next few weeks, we will develop the upper floors, but they do need work on. There will be two small Yoga studios and several therapy rooms that will focus mainly on health and well being areas like herbalism, sound therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), too name a few, our aim is to create a wellness centre for Bangor.”
