Hiya everyone,

I met a few pals from university the other day. The girls live in Cardiff so we found a middle ground and had a bit of touristy day out in central Bristol. After traipsing around the pretty mind-boggling installation at the Arnolfini we needed to warm up our frozen fingers and toes, so we slipped into Mud Dock for a coffee. 

Mud Dock is Bristol's best Cycleworks, Bike Shop and super-cool café. The downstairs of the building is an enormous bicycle shop and stock house, brimming with wheel-related treasures, a true cycle-addicts heaven. Walking up the industrial, steel stairs and guided by a handful of hand-painted banksy-themed signposts we entered into the café section of the building. Greeted by a thousand, glittering fairy lights and a wonderfully styled, industrial-looking interior we ordered a round of frothy coffees and some slices of the delectable looking cakes on offer around the till point.

With an extensive menu tapered to the ethically conscious and creative tastebuds of Bristol, Mud Dock has a laid-back and light-hearted atmosphere. Serving everything from coffee and cakes to lavish three-course meals in the evening, the huge bay windows give customers a gorgeous view over the bristol harbour, even on the cold and grizzly winters day we had chosen. 

Strung with bicycles, biking accessories and covered in urban-style stencilled art, Mud Dock truly pays attention to small details, with an ode to Bristol's best street-artist Banksy on the wall, cute little quotes hidden on the inside of the mugs and tiny almond biscotti's placed on our saucers, to enhance our coffee-dipping experience.

Will definitely be back soon! Amaia loved it too, as you can tell...
