What a lovely place to get some lunch in the city centre... Fresh and really good, cheap food! Service was quick and very welcoming. I’d particularly recommend the toasties and salads!

Really enjoyed lunch in this stylish cafe in the heart of the city. The food was lovely, well priced and the cafe also has the added bonus of linking to St. James Priory, an absolute hidden gem. Well worth a visit.

Popped in for lunch yesterday. It was delicious. Fresh salad and quiche. All looked freshly made and tasted great. As it's an independent there's nothing mass produced everything looked freshly made. Plus all profits go to support the charitable work of St James Priory next...More

Lovely homemade food options (salads, sausage rolls and quiche etc) and great selection of cake. All within beautiful historic building (oldest building in Bristol). Really is a hidden gem and well worth a visit

Had the quiche and the salad, absolutely lovely and really well priced. All homemade. All the food looks great. The staff are lovely and it’s a charitable organisation....what’s not to love!
