The Kitchen

The Kitchen, The Station, Silver Street, Bristol BS1 2AG


We are in this business for two reasons. To create a warm and welcoming place for you to relax and enjoy great food and drink, and to give opportunities for young people (particularly those that have had to deal with difficult things in life) to volunteer, get work experience, train and eventually gain employment as chefs, baristas and front of house staff.

Our Menu is designed to offer great value, unfussy tasty food and drink. We’ve got some healthy dishes but we’ve also got a few treats. We also use as many local suppliers as we can, and where we can we use organic.

An ethical cafeteria for lovely food, great coffee and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, in Bristol City Centre, close to Broadmead and St Nicks Market. The Kitchen is a relaxed and inspiring space – a perfect oasis from the chaos and busyness of Bristol City Centre.

And the best bit is that while your taste buds are having the time of their lives, you can also feel good knowing that The Kitchen is part of the YMCA charity and exists to offer volunteering, training and employment opportunities to young people who have faced real difficulties in life. So by buying a coffee from us you are supporting these young people to live full lives and fulfil their potential.
