We stopped for tea and polenta cake.Tea with spices made us warm on the cold day when we were visiting the city. Very cosy place, tea and cake were amazing. Just in the centre of Bristol.

We really enjoyed our lunch here. There was a good selection on the menu - I would recommend the hummus and roasted veg flatbread. Huge portion which was a bargain for £5. Busy, so had to wait for a table but worth it.

Reasonably priced coffee and lunch in the city centre. Three levels with the take away on the ground floor, a cosy cafe on the second and the snug on the third.
