The Bristolian

Cosy and friendly Montpelier hang-out filled with savvy locals.

Picton Street is not short of outstanding independent businesses. Tucked behind it’s noisier neighbours on Stokes Croft road, this picturesque Montpelier side street is home to everything from an organic farm shop to a yoga studio and multiple coffee possibilities. Back in 2011 it was named the best street in Bristol and since then the offerings of this ‘unassuming side street’ have continued to impress and expand.

One of the most popular Picton Street destinations is The Bristolian. Their brunches are known as legendary throughout the city, and I can testify to their quality. Far less greasy than regular fry ups, their brunches are hearty and filling with generous portion sizes.

The veggie breakfasts come complete with fried potato and halloumi, and are the perfect way to perk up any morning-after-the-night-before. The fusion breakfast is equally tasty; with fried chorizo, tomato salsa, mint yoghurt sauce, garlic mushrooms, fried potatoes and flat bread.

‘It was flipping good,’ says my brunch companion Laura “Bloz” Burke.
