Brunch@Soulshine, Bridport

We need to celebrate. Edda, my niece, has just shown us a copy of Bedboat – a new creative lifestyle magazine. Not only is she modelling in one of its photoshoots and talking about the city of Bristol – she is on the front cover! What we need now is a celebratory brunch.

We head to Soulshine in Bridport with Edda, Neko and Ziggy. Soulshine is a cool, funky cafe that has a great reputation for breakfast and brunch. As we enter I notice a rack of independent magazines – this looks like a perfect spot to pose some copies of Bedboat. We can also see a chef dividing up a huge spread of ciabatta dough. It is buzzing inside the cafe and we are just in time to take the last available table. Phew!

Rock and I both decide to sample the farl with poached eggs and bacon. This farl isn’t a type of Irish flatbread but a sweet potato cake and it works beautifully as a backdrop for the bacon and eggs. As a group we order a portfolio of coffees including Americano, latte, cappucino and flat white. The coffee is fresh and really good quality.

Edda, Neko and Ziggy all choose the full vegetarian breakfast. This is a storyboard of poached eggs, tomato, mushrooms, farls, beans and toast. The chef clearly knows how to poach an egg perfectly. We are having a great time and in the mood to order more coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, toast and jam. They will hardly need to wash up our plates – as we only just stop short of licking them clean. It is proof that Soulshine has been a fitting place for this celebration.

If Bedboat need someone to review and photoshoot restaurants in Bristol or any other location – we will make ourselves available!

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
