“Best cafe in Bradford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

I have been going in The Bridge for at least 20 years..!! The present owner, Madjid has been the owner for, I guess, maybe the last 6 years or so. There is no other café in Bradford where you can get a full dinner and tea for less than £5. All the food is home made, staff are friendly and its got easy parking. Most mornings its packed with workmen eating full breakfasts and dinner time there is a variety of mums, walkers, cyclists and school kids. Great to see an English café thriving
Check out the fresh coffee and home made steak pie

“Good food and fast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

This place always seems full and its got above average tripadvisor reviews so it must be good. Went here with my son for fathers day; managed to park right outside the front, but theres plenty of places close by to pull up, but you can easily miss this place and drive past.
Only available tables were outside, and unfortunately it was not that warm, and the seats were wet from the overnight rain, and the table could have done with a good wipe down.

The choice on the menu board was good, plus plenty of drink choices; and reasonably priced.
I ordered the full veggie, and my son had the full English.
The speed at which it arrived was very impressive, it seemed like less than 5 mins, which is commendable.
My egg, beans, mushrooms, has browns and baked beans all tasted fine; and the four rounds of toast with butter went down well too.
Unfortunately my lad was still recovering from the previous nights drink/donner so could not stomach much of his plate full; although he did mention the bacon was salty.
Cappuccino was a lot tastier than some high street cafes which are much more expensive.
The clientele was a mixture of locals and passing travellers who obviously know how good this place is.
If you are passing and fancy a quick breakfast, this is definitely worth a try; if you can get a table.

“Great breakfast!”

This place do a great full English breakfast and love their buttered toast (simple pleasures!) - staff friendly & quick service and ideally located to stop after/midway along a walk by the canal.
