Lunchtime Bites – Rubicon cafe lounge (cafe and chocolatier)

26 Chandos Road, Redland, Bristol, BS6 6PF

Rubicon cafe lounge

A selection of chocolate treats

Rubicon is a fantastic cafe on Chandos Road in Redland. It’s clean and friendly but two things stand out about it: the food and the owner. The day I was there with my friend Kimi they were selling three kinds of cake by the slice, and yes we tried all three. They were all good but I would especially recommend the fridge cake to anyone who loves chocolate. I also had some chocolate truffles, which were superb, and a very tasty panini which came with the nicest salad I’ve had in ages (partly because I don’t have salad that often… but my point is that it was really good). They also carry James chocolates http://www.jameschocolates.co.uk/ which I will have to try on my next visit.

The owner is awfully nice and he made us feel really welcome. I think I’d be a regular there if I lived closer.

There’s an excellent curry house next to it so the people of Chandos Road are really spoiled.
