Pattern is the type of place you go to relax and take your time. It’s very much an unpretentious, neighbourhood café with a warm, friendly atmosphere reflecting the owner’s personality. The coffee offer is straightforward - espresso based drinks using blends from Extract Roasters in Bristol.
The menu also includes a range of fresh fruit infusions such as raspberry and orange and fresh homemade teas, alongside loose leaf teas from Canton Tea Company. There is a real focus on fresh fruit and smoothies and juices are also available.
This is owner/barista Georgie’s first solo venture and she’s managed to create an ambiance that is quite unique – bohemian in its décor, eclectic artworks sourced from local artists and unusual secondhand furniture. There is a real charm here, and customers are encouraged to take their time and chat, read or use the wifi, or maybe eat breakfast or lunch, all while enjoying the often excellent music played over the soundsystem.
