The most recent addition to Bristol’s bakery/café scene, Stock Exchange Bakery was born out of a business that started out selling bagels. These proved so popular that proprietor Georgina Turner decided to open up a bakery, complete with coffee shop. And what a place it is.
The bakery is named after the building it inhabits– Bristol’s old Stock Exchange building in the old St Nicks area.
The huge windows and original features remain and the place radiates with warmth as the baked goods cook and fill the space with delicious smells. Particular highlights are the cinnamon buns, while bagels still feature heavily on the menu.
Slowly proved toasted bread is a mainstay on the breakfast menu, served with jams from the Bristol Preservation Company. Lunch could be anything from one of the infamous bagels to a good old fish finger sandwich or soup. Whatever you choose, you really can’t go wrong.
The coffee comes from Clifton coffee and doesn’t disappoint, and you can rest safe in the knowledge that all packaging is 100 percent compostable and recyclable.
