Fab lunch spot in bustling Bristol

Promising more than just a great cup of coffee, the friendly team behind Avenue Cafe on Bristol’s Emerson Green strive to create a warm and welcoming spot to enjoy good company and some seriously tasty food.

A favourite with both locals and tourists since opening in 2000, the family-run eatery prides itself on an ethos where as much care and attention is paid to the nothing’s-too-much-trouble service as the carefully crafted dishes.

Get cosy in a corner of the contemporary hangout and browse the comprehensive lunch menu and tempting homemade cake selection over a freshly brewed coffee. Whatever you plump for – the hot salmon salad with lemon pesto, steak and mushroom ciabatta, and the spicy olive arrabiata pasta make choosing just one tricky – you’ll want to save room for a slice of something sweet.

Breakfast options are just as plentiful, and whether you’re a toasted bagel on-the-go kind of guy or a full works English kind of girl, there’s sure to be something on the carefully sourced menu that takes your fancy. Get a few of your five-a-day in with one of the fresh fruit smoothies if you haven’t time to stop.

Not just a venue to catch up with old friends or spend a few hours mulling over a good book and a latte, the team at Avenue also host regular meze nights. With an abundance of Mediterranean treats – cooked to perfection on the authentic charcoal barbecue – and a delicious selection of wines to sample, the fun and relaxed evenings are not to be missed.
