Spike Island

Spike Island Café

Open seven days a week, Spike Island Café serves a range of drinks, snacks and meals in a sunny, laid back spot overlooking the river. It’s an ideal place to relax and refresh whether you’re visiting the exhibitions, wandering around the Harbourside, meeting friends or working in the building.

Our food is freshly prepared and we use seasonal, locally sourced products whenever possible. Sandwiches, made daily on Herbert’s bread, feature classic combinations as well as more unusual flavours. Our popular salad bar offers a rotating selection of healthy and tasty options, while our lunchtime specials menu changes daily and includes a variety of toasties, soup served with Mark's Bread, and jacket potatoes. We’ve always got plenty of vegetarian options.

Our coffee is made from fairly traded Farmer30 Origin Coffee and is delicious with a piece of cake from bakers Peck & Strong or a homemade biscuit. We also offer Clipper herbal teas and a wide range of locally made Lovely juices, soft drinks, wine, spirits and beer, including Bath Ales. 

Spike Café is available for private hire and can cater for most events, from business meetings to birthday parties. Free wireless internet is available for customers, and we welcome families.

We offer a 10% student discount and can take card payments over £5. We accept printed Bristol Pound notes.

Opening hours:
Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4pm
Saturday and Sunday, 12 to 4pm


"Honest, well-priced food in a cool and buzzy environment."
