The Bristolian is a quaint bistro found on the historic Picton Street, just a stone's throw away from the vibrant area of Stokes Croft. As an independent cafe, the team takes pride in their commitment to serving breakfast and lunch with an enticing selection of tea, coffee, cocktails, wines, and beers. If you’re visiting on a nice day, bask yourself in the sun in the inviting atmosphere of the beautiful front garden – an ideal spot to enjoy a glass of wine while observing the world passing by. The Bristolian operates daily from 8am to 5pm, offering food to customers all throughout the day. With a walk-in policy, simply step inside and wait for your table - but be sure to arrive early if you want to secure a spot on a busy day.

The menu at The Bristolian caters to diverse tastes, offering a great selection of vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and meat options. Here, the kitchen team exclusively sources free range meat and eggs from local suppliers, embodying their dedication to quality and ethical dining. Indulge in a lovely experience whether choosing breakfast to lunch, featuring an extensive selection of teas, coffees, cocktails, smoothies, and scrumptious cakes.

For breakfast, try The Bristolian fusion, a plate of free range eggs, local free range chorizo, minty yoghurt, spicy fresh salsa, flatbread, garlic mushrooms, grilled sun blush tomatoes, sesame infused spinach and crispy potatoes. If you’re visiting at lunchtime instead, enjoy the homemade vegan burger with jackfruit, tempeh, and black beans, which comes served with crispy potatoes, homemade vegan mayo and vegan cheese. Why not order a Bristolian Brewed Earl Grey Gin and Tonic or the Romantic Wonder to add a bit of fun to your meal, or opt for a classic tea or coffee.
