Hart’s Bakery originally began as a local worker and commuter favourite, however recent years have seen it grow to become one of Bristol’s best-loved independents. Specialising in slow-proved sourdough and pastries, Hart’s opens at 7am when the aroma of freshly ground coffee and croissants, fresh out of the oven, wafts up to Temple Meads station. With everything on show, it’s great to grab a drink and watch the bakers at work. The display changes throughout the day, from the early morning treats to lunchtime savouries and afternoon cakes. There is a different hot lunch special every day from noon – it might be delicious soup, a hearty bread bake or similar – but be prompt, this is one of Bristol’s most popular lunchtime haunts.
