It’s all about the waffles at this stylish neighbourhood café and foodstore on Easton High Street. And whether you opt for them with crispy bacon or slathered in syrup and seasonal fruit, one thing is certain: you need to get your order in early because they have been known to sell out.
To say that BS5 locals have taken this airy corner café with its big windows, whitewashed walls and large communal tables to their hearts is something of an understatement.
What started as a steady stream of loud-voiced recommendations when it opened back in 2013 has quickly become the stuff of sideways whispers between close friends. The message? ‘Yes, it’s good. Yes, we love it. But please don’t tell everyone. It’s already hard enough to get a table at the weekend.’
So get yourself in there, admire the shelves stacked with local, seasonal and artisan produce, order those waffles (and a damned fine coffee from local roasters Extract) but if anyone asks, you’ve lived round the corner for years and we definitely didn’t send you.
