The (mostly) saintly foodie
Your body is a temple – well, unless you fancy a cheat day. You can recount all the trendiest juice flavours (and have tried most of them, too) and can’t think of anything better than catching up with mates over a delicious salad from Chopped, located in the Foodhall, Level 3.
The super snacker
You love to indulge your sweet tooth on a regular basis – and why not? Cupcakes, brownies and the odd cookie – if you fancy it, then you don’t deny yourself. You’re certainly a glass (more chocolate milkshake) half full, rather than empty. BB's on Level 3 could be the place for you!
The family feaster
Your family is your world – but that doesn’t mean you don’t enjoy a nice meal out together. It just takes a bit of organisation (and some tactical activities in the day to get the kids nicely worn out so they sit still). Why not try Nando's in Pembroke District, it's a crowd pleaser.
The fast foodie
There’s never enough hours in the day for you. You may be one busy bee, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to enjoy gourmet grub. From spicy burritos to customisable burgers, you’re constantly looking for the next delicious hit (as long as you can be in and out in 20 minutes). You don’t have all day, after all. Eddie Rockets has you covered.
The coffee connoisseur
Chic and oh so cultivated (well, as long as you’ve had your first coffee of the morning), you like nothing more than kicking back in a relaxed yet stylish café with a paper and some sparkling conversation. You are the coffee bean aficionado – extra shot of espresso, with a biscotti on the side please. L'Officina is a must for the perfect caffeine fix.
