“If, like me, you’re looking to add another of Bristol’s foodie hotspots to your list, 99 Queens should definitely be one of them!

This new cafe is just up from the Clifton triangle, and originally opened as a brunch spot, but has now opened for Friday and Saturdays evenings, which is when we visited.

It was a nice evening, so we opted to sit out on the spacious terrace overlooking Queens Road (also better lighting for photos – how millennial of me!). 

I had already given their Instagram a stalk and had seen some photos of their cocktails which looked amazing, so already knew I was going for one of those. We went for a Pomegranate & Elderflower Fizz and an English Garden – neither of which disappointed! 

The menu has a very impressive, extensive all-day brunch menu, but there is also a specials board, which we chose our two dishes from. Firstly, we had the Green Pesto and Rocket with Fresh Tagliatelle. This was epic – full of flavour, the fresh pasta cooked to perfection left with a slight bite to it, finished off with some toasted pine nuts for an extra crunch – I didn’t want it to end!”

“We also went for the Salmon Fishcakes which were served with salad and potentially the best Sweet Potato Fries I’ve ever had! I’m normally a standard fry kind of guy, but these were on another level – so tasty and with just the right amount of crunch! 

The fishcakes themselves were also delicious, and full of fish (pet hate when fishcakes are more like a potato cake) 

After the high bar set by the mains, we thought it’d be rude not to give the puds a go too. They have a large, impressive selection of sweet treats on display by the bar – it took us a long time choose between them! We eventually decided on a Strawberry Oat Slice and a Salted Caramel Polenta Cake – both lived up to the main course and were perfectly partnered with a superb Flat White.

In short, this place is a must visit. No matter what you want – brunch, dinner, a sweet bite or just a coffee – they won’t disappoint!”
