Something a bit different but not over fancy. Mockingbird doesn't lose sight of the essential basics of a cafe - good coffee, helpful and friendly staff, well cooked food. With all of those firmly in place, the Southern twist is a pleasant bonus. We were...More

Had a quick pit stop here. Light and all a bit hipster inside. Coffee very good as was cake. Surly service though!

Delicious breakfast of marinated mushrooms, cheese scrambled eggs on sourdough. Only one if a choice of delicious Southern USA delicacies here.

Pleasant - coffee actually hot - but website and facebook not updated so you risk a journey only to find that it is closed, as when it snowed.

We were really looking forward to visiting the Mockingbird having read the Tripadvisor reviews. We were disappointed with what we found, unfortunately. The food is okay - my breakfast was over-spiced, which was a shame, and a surprise, given that I like spice, just not...More

Small but well thought-out and imaginative menu. Charming place, much like the road itself. They know their coffee, which even in this day and age of coffee appreciation isn't always the case.

We arrived with the initial intent of simply working in a café. We started with a pot of tea and a latté, the former which was lovely, the latter which my boyfriend said tasted strange ... there was something sour about it. We eventually got...More

Bristol's breakfast through lunch cafe with a flavour of the US South. Serving American breakfast classics (Biscuits & gravy), brunch dishes (smashed avocado, cured Salmon and scrambled eggs), big hitting sandwiche specials (roast beef Po' Boys, pulled pork, grilled cheese), and hot dishes (sweet potato hash, soups and stews). Washed down with great Extract coffee and a range of Canton tea. We offer up something a bit different to the UK, with tried and tested US flavour combo's. Please note that the kitchen closes an hour before the cafe closing time each day As we are a small cafe, trying to make everything in house and fresh, we will occasionally run out of popular dishes when busy. Get in early, especially at the weekends, to avoid disappointment!
