Day Tripping in Bristol

A few weekends ago we took a little day trip to Easton, a part of the city I've never been to before. Can you believe I've lived in Bristol 6 years and there are still parts of it left for me to explore?! I'm so spoilt for choice with amazing cafes, restaurants, pubs and independent shops on my door step that it's actually quite rare that I stray far from my usual stomping ground of Gloucester Road, Montpellier and Stokes Croft.... that sounds awful doesn't it? But if you know this part of Bristol, I know you'll know what I'm talking about!

Easton was great for having a little wander about on a sunny day and especially worth a visit if you're a fellow foodie.

Good things in Easton...
MAITREYA VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT: We had the most wonderful lunch in the light and airy atmosphere of this lovely restaurant (best bean-burger ever!). They have a recipe section on their website which I look forward to delving into.
BRISTOL SWEETMART: An amazing Aladdin's cave of speciality foods, filled to the brim with all those ingredients that you won't find/will be charged an inordinate amount for in the supermarket. We came home with bulging bags and of course we just had to invite friends over for an epic homemade curry night that evening to make use of our booty straight away! Sweetmart have an online shop too, so check them our if your searching for an unusual ingredient or to stock your store cupboard with spices.
EAST BRISTOL BAKERY: Do check out this award winning craft bakery's gorgeous Tumblr for full on carb porn.
No12 Easton: Although we had a look round this deli & cafe (and lovely it looked too) we didn't actually stop for food or coffee but I have it on good authority - twitter, other bloggers - that it's really tip-top.... in fact the just won 'Best Cafe Food' at Bristol Good Food Awards so if that's not an excuse for us to hurry back to Easton I don't know what is!
