Excellent food, average setting

I loved the food there: fresh ingredients, organic food, hearty soups and hot dishes. Desserts are good too. The only thing that keeps me from going more often is the place itself, not what I would describe as cozy and nice looking. Don't get me wrong it's not bad really but just not appealing.

Located in the middle of the vibrant Hamra neighbourhood in Beirut, this self-service cafe has a lot to offer. A range of fresh salads, including a tasty quinoa salad, meat or veggie sandwiches, soups, and baked potatoes. I personally had a baked potato stuffed with chicken and mushrooms along with a bottle of nature's nectar (water). It cost about $5... More

Nice food, healthy, but the prices seem a bit high. It is a great location right in the heart of Hamra.

This is one of my favorite places in Beirut. The food is organic, hence healthy, and they have a variety most of which I had and it's tasty. My favorites are the Quinoa Salad and for breakfast the Omelette sandwich. What I like about it? Everything! The food which includes daily specials and their healthy desserts, the Gloria Jeans coffee... More

Bristk was considered to offer healthy meals, dessert and drinks. After a certain time, no product is counted as healthy anymore, you can find those anywhere else. the quality is decreasing.
