Bakery
$
“Oh my gosh!!!!! Laura Hart is a bit of a hero in our book. She has created a very special bakery under a Victorian railway arch at Temple Meads station, just down the road from Paintworks. You can watch the bakers at work as you tuck into a mountain of their freshly baked sourdough toasties, pastries and cakes and perfectly brewed coffee. Bristolians love it and your trip is not complete without a look in! IT IS AWESOME. It does get busy but it's usually not to long a wait for a table. Availability and menu changes daily but the mushroom sausage roll and ginger cake are our all time faves. Get there as early as possible! It's either a 5 mins drive or a 20 minute walk from Paintworks (100% worth the walk).”
