Dizzy’s Cafe – now open on College Green…

 

We’re loving the developments on Park Street this summer! First came pan-Asian restaurant Toro, closely followed by tapas bar and lounge La Tomatina. Bagel Boy opened up within The Elbow Rooms in June, and now Dizzy’s Cafe has taken over one of the empty units opposite College Green.

“A family run business offering outstanding service and prices” is how Dizzy’s describe themselves – “the perfect place to relax with a coffee and peruse the morning newspapers or take advantage of our extensive home-cooked breakfast menu”. The breakfast menu certainly looks good – and affordable. Enjoy a full English (or the veggie equivalent) for £5, or a bacon, sausage or egg sandwich for £2.50, among other options.

Lunch includes plenty of hot options for between £5 and £6: chilli with rice and tortilla chips, vegetarian quesadillas with salad, chorizo and broad bean omelette with salad to name but a few. Omelettes, jacket potatoes, toasties, sandwiches and takeaway pasta pots complete the line up, and a range of hot drinks is available for under £2 for a regular, just over £2 for a large.

There’s plenty of space to sit and eat. The cafe feels pretty new, with wooden tables and freshly painted walls…

 

 

…and the counter features huge blackboards with all of the food and drink options listed – I couldn’t see any actual menus when I was in there.

 

 

If you want to take your food away, prices are even cheaper. I enjoyed a feta, hummus, olive and tomato baguette for my lunch, at a cost of just £1.75.

I’ve not seen any promotion for these guys – bar the creation of a Facebook page – but there was a steady trickle of customers coming through the door as I arrived. They only opened on June 26th, so it’s early days. Fingers crossed they can steal some lunchtime business from Tesco just up the road…

    I haven't found anywhere else in Bristol that offers this quality of produce at such reasonable prices. No tricks or frills, just good honest food.

    We were a family group of 7 ( age 4 through to grandparents) in for a snack before a Lion King matinee at the Hippodrome – we hit lucky -lovely baguettes & toasties with perfect beans on toast for the kids all with friendly service & reasonably priced

    I had an excellent Full English and was delighted to find that tea AND orange juice is included in the £5 price. I was greeted heartily and made to feel very welcome despite arriving 20 minutes before closing time. Tasty, well cooked ingredients. Generous portions. Will definitely go back despite the somewhat spartan decoration at present. It's the food I want!

    I sometimes come in for a full English. The food is always promptly served, the sausages and bacon are good quality and well cooked (the sausages are not deep fried and the bacon doesn't seem to be griddled) the mushrooms are nice, well cooked and fresh rather than horrible soggy tinned ones. The fact that you get a tea and orange juice with all this for £5 is great. My only grumble is that you only get one rasher of bacon, I'd usually expect two.
