Our Story

The White Elephant Coffee Shop & Cafe grew out of a love for homemade, good-quality food, and seeing how positively other people reacted when they tasted our family recipes.

We serve a variety of breakfast options both large and small, along with freshly made salads, sandwiches, quiches and jacket potatoes and our homemade cakes. We also have homemade daily specials which could be anything from pizza to chilli, with vegetarian and gluten free options available.

We source much of our produce from local providers and always use the highest-quality ingredients. This applies to our drinks as well, we serve Carwardines coffee along with a large selection of teas, soft drinks and our new Shmoo milkshakes.

At our charming location in the converted Victorian buildings of The Kingswood Estate in Bristol you can sit inside or outside with comfortable seating and enjoy the surroundings, or we can pack up your order to takeaway if needed.

We can also provide catering for your special event or occasion, please contact us for more information.
