Slap bang in the heart of Stokes Croft opposite the graffiti-laden Carriage-works, the Crafty Egg is a welcoming cafe with a relaxed vibe. Despite only opening recently, they've built up a loyal following already - with their Afghan eggs (a shakshuka type affair served with a toasted piece of pitta bread to mop up any leftover dripping yolk and smokey paprika tomato sauce) renowned. This is also a recipe owners Ben and Kate learnt when they were visiting "the Jungle" refugee camp in Calais on a charitable mission - so it's got an interesting backstory to match.
Their smoothies are maybe fruit's closest competitor to a nice big hug. Meanwhile the Crafty Egg has now opened up for evening dining or a quiet drink - think small plates perfect for a first date, or a grand cheese fondue (is this Bristol's only fondue?) which is perfect for a romantic tete-a-tete or excellent for big groups to share. It's also a more laid-back option than many of the Stokes Croft bars around it!
