Papadeli Cafe at the RWA

Papadeli is one of my favourite places for a coffee, a wander and some delicious food. Today they also set up shop a few hundred metres closer to me at the Royal West of England Academy.

The decaf, double shot, Americano was very nice and there is a selection of cakes, sandwiches and various other foods on the menu. The soup of the day was lentil with cumin while some crusty roll sandwiches had toppings such as prosciutto with tomato and rocket, and chorizo and goat’s cheese with rosemary. The rolls are £3.95 for take away and £4.75 to eat in.

I enjoyed a superb brownie that was on par with the amazing one from Sourdough in St Nicholas Market and a sweet San Pellegrino soft drink.

Accessibility is great with a sloped entrance at the front and plenty of room inside for a pram. The cafe is divided into two areas. The store part is in one narrow room with a long bench that fits all the food and the cash register. There is a separate room with tables and cutlery which has high windows but is mostly closed off from the rest of the world. There are also three tables near the entrance to the art gallery but they don’t have too much of a view either.

It’s a lovely place for great food and coffee which are a bit of a treat at those prices but delicious nevertheless.
