Sometimes I forget just what a brilliant, vibrant City Bristol is. I travel all over in search of the cool, independent cafe’s to share with you on this blog. And then some days, full of grump and indecision, I stumble across a cafe in my own City.
Anna cafe. I’ve been here before, but never really paid attention. The coffee is good, the cakes, wow! are exceptional – but it’s the interiors and decor touches that I found interesting.
This pretty, relaxed cafe is situated on Boyce’s Avenue in the heart of Clifton Village, opposite Papersmiths and down the way from the Bristol institution, Reg the Veg. Boyce’s Avenue, now a pedestrian zone, with a decidedly continental feel with tables and chairs spilling out over the pavement and people enjoying good locally roasted coffee and handmade cake in the sunshine.
Anna’s heart is firmly in cake couture, designing and creating the most stunning celebration cakes for Weddings and parties.
At the moment, I’m not in the market for a bespoke wedding cake, but oh my! If I was, I know where I would go. In the meantime, I am more than happy to sit in the calmness of the back dining space, with a flat white and pistachio macaroon, and marvel at the light and succulents in the window.
Speaking of windows. Check out the Summer display. Oh wow! Worth stopping by.
