It’s hard keeping up with Bristol’s sprouting of restaurant and cafe openings, but here’s an attempted rundown on a few places opening their doors!
Clifton’s favourite cafe have packed their bags and moved to the (conveniently located) top of Park Street. Expect craft coffee roasted by Clifton Coffee, Moroccan flatbreads, meaty burritos and baked goods. Now open!
Another excellent addition to Bristol’s burger scene, Squeezed at Cargo 2 serve great-tasting burgers (with peanut butter sauce making a stunning appearance), classic sides and a sliding scale of funky lemonades. Once a firm favourite at Rebel Roll, you can expect a comeback from the famous St Werburghs burger: double beef patty, Monterrey Jack, confit shallots, smoked bacon and caper aioli, and chipotle tomato relish. Veggies don’t fret, meat-free dishes are on the menu too!
This cosy café opened its doors earlier this summer, offering an impressive range of porridge creations. All porridge bowls are generously loaded with tasty toppings such as the Crazy Clifton Combo: dates, cacao nibs, cranberries, hazelnuts, apple and cinnamon. All bowls are priced at £3 and come with the option of almond, soya and oat milk.
Clifton Observatory opened their doors earlier this month with sweet offerings of cakes, coffee, and arguably the greatest view of Bristol. Its gorgeous terrace overlooking the Suspension Bridge makes it a great place to take visiting friends and parents!
The unabashed masters of craft burgers finally claim their own residence on St Stephens Street. Expect a wide variety of lip-smacking burgers stacked gloriously high and packed with juicy flavours. Their veggie and vegan burgers are the best to be found in Bristol!
The team behind Young & Foodish provide another brilliant offering of craft burgers down by Bristol’s Harbourside, specialising in classic cheeseburgers and hot waffles.
Eat a Pitta have finally made its way up to Clifton with their shiny new residence on Queens Road. Serving top-notch falafels at reasonable prices, this store is set to be a big hit amongst locals and students alike.
Claiming to serve award-winning coffee and locally-sourced lunches, this contemporary new space aims to focus on high-quality. Expect local artisan beers, a hand-picked selection of wines and the best baked goods supplied by Hobbs Bakery.
Mrs Potts can be found at the bottom of Park Street and is set to open next week. Inspired by Australian chocolate café’s, you will be able to enjoy a sweet scale of chocolate goods sourced from local supplier Guilberts Chocolatiers. Expect chocolate fondues, chocolate pots, hazelnut tarts and more (I’m very excited by this!).
SubCulture are taking over Kongs on King Street, replacing their former occupants Burger Theory (find them in their new place on Stephens Street!). The menu covers 9″ toasted subs, loaded with juicy fillings and served with beer battered fries and zingy slaw. Covering an impressive range of meat, veggie and vegan (watch out for the arrival of their pulled jackfruit vegan sub), SubCulture marks an exciting food venture and a tasty alternative to the standard burger and chips duo.
Foundations Cafe on Baldwin Street is the newest health cafe to open its doors. Serving fresh and homemade pittas, salads and meal boxes, along with top-notch protein shakes (the peanut nutter shake is delish), and mouth-watering sugar-free treats, this health hub proves serious potential.
