Alex is most definitely the hostess with the mostest. Having started her coffee journey as a pretty nifty barista at a properly thirsty law firm, she eventually took the plunge and decided to build her first café at Two's Company (proudly sporting a handmade bean bar, hand-decorated walls and lovingly curated fixtures and fittings, it truly was pieced together from the ground up).
A couple of years and many hundreds of happy customers later, Alex's plunge reflex has kicked in again... and she's surfaced for air in an esoteric oasis of Bristolian creativity: the disarmingly lovely and refreshingly off-radar Dockyard Studios.
For anyone yet to visit Alex Does Coffee @ Dockyard Studios, you're in for a real treat. Tucked away beneath an art studio, this beautiful cafe is a real needle in a haystack to locate. A hint: it's next to one of Bristol's most famous street art pieces, Banksy's 'Girl with a Pierced Eardrum'. If you fancy a brisk walk around the harbour-side, Alex Does Coffee @ Dockyard Studios is a perfectly poised pit stop for a pick-me-up – warm your cockles on a bowl of homemade veggie soup and thick cut, crusty bread from the Loaf bakery. Inside, you'll encounter a bright, white, clean aesthetic, with enormous French windows looking out across the water to the beautiful coloured houses of Hotwells. Inside, it's a veritable hive of activity; there's an abundance of greenery and pot plants within, and crowds of intense artists working away upstairs. Culinarily speaking, expect a bountiful counter that's overflowing with sweet treats, pastries, flapjacks, cakes and more.
Alex Does Coffee @ Dockyard is a true hidden gem, far from the madding crowds and off the beaten track, but well worth the voyage of discovery. You're welcome!
