Welcome to Bristol's creative corner. A free-spirited paradise with undefined boundaries, this Bohemian area has a small but valuable number of restaurants, pubs and bars. Emma Feloy uncovers the crème de la crème of Montpelier.
Small and perfectly formed, Emmeline is one of the newer additions to Montpelier. The small space doubles up as a plant shop and florist, packed full of fresh greenery. The smell of exceptionally good coffee (and the range of delicious pastries, yummy salads and tempting sandwiches) add to its beauty. Perch on the side and people-watch for a while, or grab food to takeaway. When you’re somewhere as fun to wander round as Montpelier, that’s always a good option.
