We had lunch (four people) here having searched for some time to find anywhere suitable for lunch. The cafe is in the City Centre next to the Bus Station and therefore ideal if you are in town shopping or based in an office nearby. Very friendly service and a great value meal. I would definitely recommend this as a good option for lunch.

Tucked away is correct but wow when you find it, good food and coffee all fresh and served up by friendly staff all at reasonable prices.

You also have the old historic church to which the café is attached, beautiful.

We didn't know this cafe existed -its tucked away in a side street by the Bristol Bus station.
It's light and airy and serves great snacks and meals at very reasonable prices. I can only assume even more people don't go there as its off the beaten track despite being in the heart of Bristol. Well worth seeking out.

Came here with my family of 6 to meet my cousin and her husband, and all of us enjoyed our meal. They serve a wide selection of dishes from salads, paninis, quiches and baked potatoes to hot meals, or you can just stop off for a coffee and home made cake, all at reasonable prices. The food all tastes freshly made, which is a nice change! It's clean and modern, but set in what i think may be the oldest building in Bristol. If you get time, have a quick look round the priory because it has a really interesting history, and it's one of the most peaceful places I've ever been. There's just something about it - see for yourself.

Set in a converted priory but very with very modern feel. This is my first choice for a coffee in Bristol when on business. The staff are outstanding in their friendliness and welcome. They rent out rooms for meetings in the priory (the oldest building in Bristol, 1129) and could not be more customer focused.
