North Street has exploded recently, packing itself densely with stalwart, long term residents and the new kids on the block. You can satisfy any craving on this stretch of road with burgers, thali, craft beer, mac and cheese and some of the best Shakshouka in the west available to you. Natalie gives us a run down of what to expect if you venture over the river
First up on our list is all-rounder The Tobacco Factory. This venue is a cafe, bar, theater and market all rolled into one and really encapsulates the Bristol community spirit. The relaxed cafe and bar here offers something for everyone, from light bites, soups and sandwiches to sharing plates and mezze in the evening. All food is made from local, seasonal produce with full vegetarian and vegan options available. It's also a great spot to grab a coffee and a slice of cake during the day, or to enjoy a nice glass of wine if you are attending the theater here. The Tobacco Factory market runs every Sunday, with over 40 stalls to visit. Popular Bristol street traders are part of the weekly line-up, with favourites such as Alp Mac, Gopal’s and the Pickled Brisket often popping up.
