spicer+cole: new cafe of choice!

I seem to spend quite a lot of my time in cafes these days!
It’s something I’ve really been enjoying since retirement last year (and cafes DO seem to feature rather regularly in my recent determination to produce “a drawing or a photograph for each day”!).
We’re spoilt for choice here in Bristol - No.1 Harbourside and the Mud Dock Deli are two of my favourites.
BUT, I’ve now got a new “café of choice” – it’s called Spicer+Cole.
It’s located on Queen Square Avenue - just off Queen Square and opposite the Welsh Back Health Club/Gym. It might not have a harbourside view (although the water is a mere 30m away), but it DOES have an awful lot of other things going for it as far as I’m concerned. It’s a beautiful, elegant, light and airy place serving truly EXCELLENT coffee (crucial for me!)… plus a wide variety of food for breakfasts, brunches, lunches and beyond. The staff are great too.
Simple, vitally-important pleasures!

Looks very inviting. Is this what used to be the Avenue Cafe? And does it serve Fairtrade coffee?

Yes, I think that's right... (I don't know if it's fairtrade coffee, but it IS the best cup of coffee in Bristol!)(to my taste).
