The team maintained a friendly and upbeat attitude despite being a man down (a chef) on a busy Saturday. Well done. It meant for a still savoured and enjoyed brunch experience on a reduced menu range on that occasion. We’ll be back!

Lovely premises, great staff, baked goods and coffee from downstairs are brill - food from the upstairs menu, really disappointing. When you’re paying £12/13 for a breakfast, it needs to be good! Generally lacked flavour and seasoning.

I love the food and atmosphere at Bakesmiths! I enjoy getting a more relaxed environment in the new restaurant area now too. No laptops in sight!

I’ve seen open kitchens before but chef was pretty exposed...impressive to see! Waitress was delightful. Good work!

Having visited bakesmoths for over 4 years now I'm extremely disappointed with the service I received on Sunday, September 27th. I walked upstairs with intentions to sit down for a coffee, do about 2 hours work and then order lunch and leave and upon arriving upstairs found out that it had been turned into more of a restaurant than a café. Fine. I made my intentions clear and asked if it would be possible to sit out of the way in the corner and order a coffee and lunch deal for £16 I believe but delay the lunch arriving for 2 hours. I was told this was fine. However 1 hour in I was asked by one waitor 3 times if I wanted to order lucnh and then asked by a 2nd waitor twice. I reiterated my intentions which I was told in the beginning was fine.. I was then approached by another member of staff who told me my table was reserved and I'd have to leave soon, I restated my story. He 'moved some things around' even though it was clearly obvious there was no reservation. Finally he returned to me 10 minutes later pressuring me to order lunch again. I ordered my food and left after spending a total of 90 minutes there, very frustrated and having gotten little work done due to all the distractions. I appreciate some establishments welcome someone to come in, buy a coffee and do a few hours work and some don't. This is why I was clear about my intentions to do a bit of work and order lunch and asked was it okay. I would not have minded if Bakesmoths staff were transparent with me and maybe if they directed me downstairs instead or said from the beginning that I couldn't stay for 2 hours. I'm very dissappointed about the change in service or staff thay has brought what used to be one of my favourite cafes in Bristol, down significantly in standard and treatment of customers.

I love Bakesmiths, but this time around I felt slightly pressured to buy a whole meal when I actually just wanted to come in for a drink!

The menu deals are a bit confusing. And we thought we’d added eggs for £3 not 1 egg for £1.50 as it doesn’t say that on the menu. But everything else was superb!

Consistently excellent food, perhaps portion sizes could be reduced a little?

Great food and service. Some extra poached eggs were missed from one meal but before we mentioned it the waitress had apologised and brought extra over. Much appreciated and as always the food was superb!
