A nice and friendly coffee place with sits in and out side. Not far from the town centre nor Bristol Zoo

Three friends treat us to a coffee/chocolate and cake and chocolates. It was absolutely delicious. A really special treat - recommend to anyone who wants to celebrate a special occasion.

Visited on a very hot day at the end of July. Having strolled around Clifton we decided on this attractive independent cafe for a light lunch as we had an excellent restaurant booked for the evening. And it had a note in the window saying...More

We stopped by for a cup of coffee as the place looked really nice. Both coffee and hot dark hot choc were great. The chocolate almond cake was probably the best we've ever had anywhere in the UK. Can't recommend this place enough. Little gem...More

It's a pretty good little café. We had a plate of 4 luxury chocolates for £2.20, though they were expensive, they were delicious. We also had lattes, chocolate cake and chocolate coated flapjack. They were good and standard café prices. We will definitely revisit when...More

We had two excellent hot chocolates here on a freezing cold day in Bristol. It’s a well run independent with great chocolates, pastries and coffee. Well worth seeking out

I was just wondering around Bristol, having come up on my own for an open day. I stopped off here and it was really chill, nice atmosphere and AWESOME hot chocolate. 15 minutes there and gone, but it was worth it 100%!

looked for somewhere to have a snack, as opposed to a lunch and this fitted the bill admirably. Good portions of tasty soup, salads, paninis etc served to all in our party.

Description
A short stroll down from the historic Clifton Suspension Bridge and you'll find Bar Chocolat on The Mall at the heart of Clifton Village. Where better to meet up with friends and relax for a while with something from our classic cafe menu than in our cosy, unique atmosphere? We are a family business and pride ourselves on good-old-fashioned quality service to make each and every visit a pleasure. We think we do the best hot chocolate in town - it's our absolute passion - as well as our cafe classics including organic, fair trade coffees and teas, alcoholic drinks and delicious homemade cakes and food served all day.
