Brunch in Bristol: 8 Places You Need To TryPosted on: 18 Oct 2019
Autumn is here; the evenings are getting darker, it’s a little bit chillier. So, it’s time to make the most of those bright, crisp mornings. Brunch, anyone?
Bristol is full of foodie fiends who will fight for the best seats in the house when it comes to a weekend brunch, so it’s essential to plan ahead.
Want to spend the morning in Clifton? Or are you heading down the hill towards Stokes Croft? Whatever your preference, we've rounded up some of our favourite brunch spots across Bristol.
The Crafty Egg
113 Stokes Croft, Bristol BS1 3RW
When you think of brunch, what comes to mind? Eggs, perhaps? A Stokes Croft gem, The Crafty Egg is one of the city’s ultimate brunch spots.
From baked eggs, to veggie and vegan full breakfasts – the warm and rustic surroundings of the Crafty Egg are sure to make any post-Stokes Croft night out hangover a little more bearable.
At the Well
145 Cheltenham Rd, Bristol BS6 5RR
Pancakes, coffee and – laundry? Not only is At The Well a place to grab some of the fluffiest, most flavorsome pancakes in Bristol, it’s also a launderette!
Grab your laundry basket, pop a wash on and enjoy some of the Well’s Transatlantic Pancakes while you wait. American pancakes, scrambled eggs, buttery mushrooms, streaky bacon, doused in maple syrup. Lovely.
The Prince Street Social
37-41 Prince St, Bristol BS1 4PS
Unlimited prosecco, Amstel or Thatchers. Need we say more?
Start your weekend off right with The Prince Street Social’s bottomless brunch menu. Choose from one of their elegant dishes (some waffles or a vegan shakshuka, perhaps?) and get started on your two hours of unlimited booze.
And for the love of good brunching, don’t forget to enjoy the brunch bar (coffee, fruit, toast - the lot) while you wait.
1 Boyce's Ave, Bristol BS8 4AA
There’s loads of great places to grab some brunch in Clifton Village; East Village Café, Spicer & Cole, the Ivy – for if you’re feeling a bit fancy.
But if you’re in Clifton village this weekend, don’t forget to stop and smell the roses. And by that, I mean: get brunching at Primrose Café.
Sat in the heart of the village, Primrose is an idyllic spot for a bite to eat, and boasts a huge brunch menu. From ‘posh’ mushrooms (it is Clifton, of course) to breakfast muffins and full breakfasts - you can't beat it.
60 North St, Bristol BS3 1HJ
Plants, antiqued furniture and adorable crockery: Albatross is a brunching paradise on North Street. Armed with a short and sweet menu, Albatross Café base their brunch offerings around seasonal ingredients.
85 Park St, Bristol BS1 5PJ
Pinkmans on Park Street has a pretty solid hot brunch menu, but we’re here to make noise about their baked goods.
Sour-dough-nuts (see what they did there?), sweet treats and some of the best pastries you’ll find in Bristol, Pinkmans is always a good choice if you want a quick bite.
35 Lower Approach Rd, Bristol BS1 6QS
Still on the lookout for that perfect pastry? Hart’s is a safe bet, but you’ve got to be quick – their stock sells out fast. But when you've got your hands on one of their freshly baked loaves, or a crumbly, thick pastry, you know it's been worth the fight.
Clifton Down Station, Whiteladies Rd, Bristol BS8 2PN
Situated next to Clifton Down station, Steam is a particularly convenient meeting spot if your gang is in the market for some bottomless brunching. But that’s not even the best bit. At the moment, Steam is adding a bit of Spanish sunshine to the usual brunch bite with a selection of tapas options.
Choose a tapas platter, enjoy unlimited prosecco and then, if you’ve got the room, finish up with some sweet cinnamon churros covered in chocolate sauce. Thank us later!
