Harts Bakery - Lower Approach Rd
Harts is an artisan bakery working out of a large Victorian railway arch at Temple Meads station with a seating area to watch the bakers at work, baking their specialities of sourdough, handmade pastries and cakes. It’s all about the Sausage Rolls though, they’re to die for!
Chattertons Café - Redcliffe Way
It doesn’t get any closer than this. Once you’ve crossed the road outside DeskLodge House you’re all but there! From freshly made sandwiches (on freshly cut bread!!) to overfilled jacket potatoes Chattertons is a great place to pop out to if you need lunch fast! It won’t break the lunch budget either.
St Nicks Street Food Market – The Corn Exchange, Corn Street
With 15 Stalls from Japanese to Indian, British to Thai, St Nicks Market is full of local legends.
You have a choice from incredible middle eastern wraps made with fresh naan at Matina, some of the best pies in the South-West at Pieminister and the freshest of falafel & salad boxes at Eat-a-Pitta. There’s also Chilli Daddy for ramen and Ahh Toots for that post-lunch cake fix, plus loads more – fully DeskLodge approved!
In addition to the permanent businesses at St Nicks, you'll also have the choice of several street food traders every Tuesday and Friday between 11am-2:30pm on Corn Street and Wine Street, just outside the main market building, as well as a vegan food market every Monday, so you're never short of choice when it comes to tasty local food!
Just 15 minutes walk from DeskLodge House you can find Wapping Wharf Cargos serving up street food to specialist coffee – and everything in between – offering a huge range of options for food and drink 'on the go'. Our favourites include Gopal’s Curry Shack, Caribbean treats at Calypso Kitchen, coffee and cake at Mokoko, Pizzarova, traditional Fish & chips at Salt & Malt and Asian delights from Seven Lucky Gods and Wokyko.
Special shout out to the Athenian which does the tastiest gyros in Bristol! This is one of the best places for independent eateries in the city.
Woolly Cactus – Bath Street
Thinking burrito? Then look no further. Fresh, tasty, and on Wriggle every day (£5 for a large burrito and trust us you won’t need an afternoon snack). If burritos aren’t your thing Woolly Cactus has a wide menu of Mexican street food for you to dig your teeth into.
Philpotts – Victoria street
Look no further if you’re looking for solid sandwiches and a vast selection of sweets. Less than a ten-minute walk away from DeskLodge House it’s a great option for breakfast sarnies as well as the lunch fare.
You’ll find a wealth of delicious lunchtime food from local, award winning producers and street vendors at this weekly food market located behind Temple Meads. Bristol is well-known for being independent and this market is a great example of what the city has to offer.
Arc Café – Colston Parade
An awesome project in an awesome location (underneath St. Mary of Redcliffe Church). Arc Café is run in partnership with the Addiction Recovery Agency and they provide a platform for their staff to get back on their feet whilst battling addiction and mental health. Serving up sandwiches, topped jacket potatoes and even a sneaky fry-up if you get their early enough. We love what they’re doing, and the food is great too.
Yurt Lush - Clock Tower Yard
Situated within three interlinked Mongolian-style tents the Yurt Lush café’s menu is based on organic and local ingredients. A little bit more expensive than some of the other options on this list but it’s most definitely worth it as the food is on point and the location is something else!
The Kitchen of Anatonia – Redcliffe roundabout
The Kitchen of Anatonia serve up gorgeous falafel and chicken wraps at a low price – all of the right words! This is one of the closest food vendors to DeskLodge House, walking there takes all of 5 minutes at your most leisurely stroll.
I love to help and support people and businesses to achieve their goals, and thrive in an environment that involves problem-solving, working collaboratively, and improving processes and business efficiency.
