STOP PRESS:  The Kitchen is Highly Commended in the Bristol Good Food Awards for best cafe food in Bristol.  See all the results by clicking HERE

The Kitchen is a relaxed and inspiring space – a perfect oasis from the chaos and busyness of Bristol City Centre.

We're on Silver Street, between Nelson Street and Rupert Street, in the old fire station building (look out for the big red doors!). We're next door to Laser Fusion (used to be called Laser Quest).

The Old Fire Station, Bristol. The KitchenWe've got a daytime menu crammed with top notch locally sourced food and drinks for every occasion – whether you're after a quick snack, a bit of brekkie or lunch with friends.

We're also proud to be serving locally blended and roasted coffee from Extract and some of the best teas in the land from the good people at PUKKA

We're also a great place for events, private parties, celebrations and meetings.

And the best bit is that while your taste buds are having the time of their lives, you can also feel good knowing that The Kitchen is part of the YMCA charity and exists to offer volunteering, training and employment opportunities to young people who have faced real difficulties in life. So by buying a coffee from us you are supporting these young people to live full lives and fulfil their potential.


Open Kitchen - Kindness for the price of a coffeeSuspended coffee supporter

Someone very wise once said "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted". We agree, so we're giving our very lovely customers the opportunity to make a small act of kindness to their fellow man (...or woman, of course!).

Open Kitchen gives you the chance to "suspend" food and drink at the cafe - which can then be given free of charge to another customer at a later date. You may have seen on Facebook and Twitter recently the global phenomenon of "Suspended Coffees", which we think is an utterly brilliant idea - so much so we've decided to make it possible at The Kitchen.

From today we will place a marble in a counter-top jar when you buy an extra drink, snack or lunch for someone to redeem at a later date. Anyone can then claim the free drink or food, but the intention is, of course, that only those that need to do so, will.

To kick the whole thing off, we've put the first twenty marbles in the jar.

If you feel you are one of our equally lovely customers that needs a free suspended drink or some suspended food, just ask. We won't ask you awkward question, make a fuss about it or make a judgement on you - if there's a marble in the jar and you feel you can't pay, then we'll make you a drink or some food. Simple as that.
