Please note that at the time of writing this review (April 2013) the attached photo of the venue is incorrect. It is a photo of another Bristol café, also called ‘Café on the Square’, but in the suburb of Sea Mills, whereas this café is in the city centre (Grove Avenue), just off the beautifully restored Queen Square. The one in Sea Mills is actually a converted public convenience!
We visited this café for a light lunch snack before a Saturday wedding at St Mary Redcliffe, which is not far away. It is a pleasant and informal venue with excellent value food, especially when you consider the central location and the costs that must come with that. Everything is of high quality and is freshly made on the premises, and they’ll cater for special dietary requirements. The menu is on their website, and the emphasis is on simple but tasty food. We enjoyed such things as a sausage sandwich, for £2.60, and scrambled eggs (3) on toast with added smoked salmon, for £4.50. We had eaten breakfast in our hotel (the Bristol, which is also nearby) but this would be a good venue for breakfast if you were staying somewhere without breakfast included. Note that current opening hours are not extensive and you therefore won’t be able to enjoy a late afternoon tea:
Monday to Friday 7.15am to 3.30pm
Weekends 10.00am to 3.30pm
