Cafe Kino, true to its name, provides a real window to the world. Floor to ceiling glass bad-boys encircle the shop front, revealing the eccentricities of a notoriously-difficult-to-navigate junction in the heart of Stokes Croft, and making it one the greatest people watching spots we’ve come across.
Whilst you're watching the world go by, tuck into all manner of guilt-free vegan goodies – burgers, breakfasts, falafel, fresh salads and cakes – and a cracking selection of proper loose leaf teas, fairtrade coffee and cool beverages. It's timeless and idiosyncratic with an undeniably cinematic feel (think more along the lines of considered documentary than dream-like surrealism), and the inclusion of well-chosen local beers, cider and wines help make the experience all the more picturesque (especially as the evenings draw in).
Kino is also a fine community resource, exhibiting the work of local artists on their walls and offering up an affordable event space downstairs. Great for meetings, workshops and music events – a righteous moving picture.
