There’s no denying that Bristol loves coffee and here in Bedmo you can get some of the best brews around.
Relatively recent addition to North Street but caffeine fans already wonder what they did before it came along. They do a decent trade in cakes, dessert pots and savoury snacks but the coffee is the king here, served by people who know what they are doing.
Like Dr Who's TARDIS, this venue looks compact from the street but opens out into a very generous space once you walk in the door. Established Bristol chain whose founders are, by their own admission, a bit geeky about beans and brewing, which adds up to some quality drinks for the rest of us.
Close to the North Street/Dean Lane roundabout you'll find the delights of Hennesy's, where the friendly staff know many of their customers by name and also know plenty about coffee. There are some lovely nooks and crannies towards the back where you can find peace and quiet. Their cakes deserve a mention too.
