Why we love it

The Bristolian has long been a landmark cafe/bistro for those in the know (welcome to the club). It shines like a largely edible gem-stone atop Picton Street, brightly and busily churning out all manner of honest grub (seasonal and local, don’t you know), specialty coffee and generally delightful vibes. It’s one of those rare places which induces a sense of yearning – invariably looking more attractive than one’s destination (usually work) – with it’s heavily foliaged terrace catching sunshine all day long. Think Amelie aesthetic, with Bristolian charm.

The restaurant is so beautiful, you're surrounded by plants and cushions! We had 2 vegan burgers and a glass of wine each which was excellent value for money. Their vegan options are so good!


The food was really tasty and good value for money. I enjoyed the relaxed vibe and friendly atmosphere.
