Bristol may not be known for its perfect weather, but Quay St Diner brings a touch of sunshine to the city with its menu of Californian-inspired fare. The vibrant all-day restaurant boasts industrial chic interiors, with exposed ceiling pipes, hanging fairy lights and sanded-down wooden surfaces.
The menu kicks off with brunch dishes such as smashed avocado and two poached eggs on grilled sourdough, as well as pancake stacks topped with fresh fruit and maple syrup. Later in the day, diners can chow down on a run of tacos, burgers and steaks all powered by the custom-built Santa Maria charcoal grill. Particular highlights include the popcorn shrimp tacos with fruit salsa and lime, and a grilled chicken cheeseburger which is topped with crispy shallots and chipotle mayo, and comes with a side of fries.
Round off your meal with the indulgent likes of a chocolate brownie sundae, or affogato served with a shot of espresso. Competitive pricing and a well-curated list of wines, beers and ciders are further reasons to take a trip to Quay St and soak up some carefree Californian vibes.
