Quirky specialist coffee spot in Bridport
The lucky people of Bridport have had a new hangout where excellent coffee is just one part of a funky package, since Soulshine opened in the spring of 2014.
An initial glance through its slightly Dickensian shop window reveals bookshelves displaying magazines, indy comics and graphic novels. There’s a rustic wooden panelled serving counter and a menu blackboard – which covers the whole wall – decorated with butterflies.
An arty feel pervades throughout, thanks to work from graffiti artist Xenz, right to the lovely little sunny courtyard, with its long wooden tables and white fence, painted with leaves and birds.
Alongside the house espresso from Extract you’ll find guest coffees on offer – including Amid Giants & Idols, Union, Origin and Square Mile. The team also creates an incredible range of juices and works to produce a fresh, healthy food offering (all breads baked in-house). You’ll also want to pick up something from the deli.
