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.
