Tucked away on the edge of Queen Square (there's also another branch in Clifton Village), Spicer and Cole state that they simply provide high standards of coffee and food in an 'uncluttered space'. Although I haven't taken any pictures of the actual cafe, the space itself is definitely one of my favourite parts - it's very minimalistic, elegant and completely unpretentious, with a large bar filled with fresh sandwiches, salads and baked goods.
On Saturdays and Sundays they serve brunch until 2pm with everything from a full english, pancakes and stuffed mushrooms. On my last trip for brunch I went for the chorizo shakshuka - baked eggs with chorizo and peppers, served with home-made flatbreads. They do a range of coffees and teas, with the teas served in this cute grey tea set with an egg timer to provide the best brewing time.
On weekdays they are very popular with local office staff, with queues often out of the door, drawn in by the range of sandwiches, flat breads and paninis which are all served warm off the press. This leek, brie and caramelised onion toasty was so delightful and was a perfect break from a Friday study session! I can't wait for my next trip!
Do you have any favourite lunch spots which you go back to again and again? In Bristol or in your local area? I'd love to hear!
