We meet some great Bristol businesses in our day-to-day life. Many of them are DeskLodgers, of course. But others are just awesome companies where we get a coffee and pastry, or grab a lunchtime sarnie.
So we thought we’d like to salute those enterprises – big and small – who help make our working day just that little bit better.
A stone’s throw from DeskLodge House in Bristol is this gem of a bakery. These demons of the dough specialise in all kinds of tempting treats, including sausage rolls, pasties, handmade pastries, cakes and savouries. Their mouth-watering munchies have been a comfort to us here at DeskLodge, and make no mistake! It’ll be just what you knead too. Open for takeaway and Click & Collect.

Coffee Box Bristol
Sometimes, things just happen that you can’t explain. Or you don’t want to understand. Things like the brilliant Coffee Box in Bristol. Rather than being a traditional coffee shop with walls and windows (very old fashioned), they’ve plumped for a converted horsebox. Funky, cool and with thoroughbred coffee and cakes, the Coffee Box is one of a kind.

If you’ve ever had issues with self-doubt, then you’ll know just how debilitating it can be. These feelings of inadequacy can hold us back in our lives and can lead to other issues, like anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. That’s why it’s important to recognise the signs – and then smash them into a million pieces! So let’s get into it.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is such a wonderful event to have in the calendar. It’s a time when the world can throw a spotlight on women’s rights movement, and celebrate what has been achieved (whether that’s socially, culturally or politically) and what still needs to be done.
