About Café Revival
Café Revival is Bristol’s Oldest Coffee House. Set over three floors we offer a unique and relaxing environment to meet, refuel and relax. Situated in the heart of Bristol’s Historic Old City, 56 Corn Street, has been a coffee house for over 200 years. If our walls could talk they’d tell you stories of Georgian merchants meeting to seal business deals and share trading gossip.
Many merchants in Georgian Bristol frequented Bristol’s coffee shops to read the newspapers, share business gossip and arrange business deals. If you close your eyes, you can almost hear the Georgian businessmen creating and sealing deals and sharing trading gossip over coffee echo from our historic walls.

The current custodian and proprietor of Cafe Revival, Mark Rind, is committed to continue developing and improving the experience for customers.
Today, we are proud to be a welcoming community café offering a cosy meeting place for Bristol’s business men & women (our free WiFi helps) as well as a friendly neighbourhood hub for the wider community to meet, relax and refuel.
Honouring the building’s heritage is important to us. Our rustic and charming interior offers our customers a unique cafe experience. We are proud to be an independent business and unlike the large chains can offer quality, at an affordable price in a truly unique setting.
We can offer you a quick bite to takeaway from our ground floor takeaway bar or perhaps a relaxing refuel in our licensed 1st floor cafe or how about a cosy chill out in our 2nd floor Snug!
Our extensive Cafe menu offers a range of fairtrade, organic and, where possible, locally sourced food, freshly prepared on the premises. The majority of our Café menu is available to takeaway from our ground floor counter where you will find a delicious array of cakes on display. Those with a little more time on their hands can venture upstairs to our 1st floor café offering our full menu and a wide selection of excellent wines, local beers & ales and spirits. A popular hideaway, and one often missed, is our cosy ‘snug’ on the 2nd floor.
We are very proud to be an independent business in the heart of a vibrant local community.
Centrally located, but hidden away above the bustle of the city, Cafe Revival is the perfect place to relax, refuel and socialise with friends or colleagues.
