When it comes to ingredients, the City Farm Cafe can think almost entirely in food yards. The cafe's situated in the centre of the city farm who provide meat, vegetables, salad and wild ingredients for the cafe menu. The local allotment holders are also encouraged to trade surplus in return for something to eat or drink.
Supporters of organic, fair-trade and wild food systems, all dietary requirements are catered for.
The cafe's well supported event 'Tasty Tales' is always worth saving the date for.
The hobbit-esque building, home to this cafe for over ten years, warmed by a central log burner is made from organically shaped, gnarled wood with bright inlaid windows. The cafe decking overlooks our adventure playground, with views across the road to our small holding.
The City Farm Cafe was also responsible for creating a new category in The Observer Food awards when it won the Best Ethical Contribution, an inspiration for many subsequent Bristol winners who hold this highly coveted award.
The café is usually open 6 days a week, 10am – 4pm Winter, and 10am – 5pm Summer (always closed on Tuesdays).
The Cafe is currently closed in line with Government recommendations around social distancing (updated 17th March 2020)
