Bristol is full of hidden gems that we just can’t stop ourselves from sharing with you. In the coming months, we’ll be showing off some of our favourite haunts around the city. To kick things off, we headed over to the 

The café is perched on Clare Street, just a stone’s throw away from Saint Nicholas Market. With its sweet mix of vintage interiors (the mismatched leather sofas and crockery are perfect for any Pinterest lovers out there), live music nights and home-made food, we found it impossible not to fall in love with the Birdcage. Of note is also its huge selection of teas, from traditional Earl Grey to the unusual: Turkish Chunky Apple, Orange Pekde and Spiced Masala Chai.

It's relaxing atmosphere makes the Birdcage ideal for catching up with your friends over a cuppa (with a free refill, we might add!), a romantic date, or a slightly quirkier place to bring your laptop for a few hours of writing. In short, it’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon.  

(We’d also like to say a massive thanks to the wonderful staff who let us wander around the Birdcage, camera in hand).
