Eating and Drinking

Cafe closed - for now!

We are currently working on some exciting plans for the future of the Cafe at RWA. Sign up to our mailing list at the Welcome Desk or via our website, to be the first to hear the news. You can also follow us on social media for the latest updates.
We are sorry for any inconvenience.


The fuss-free, contemporary menu at The Epiphany focuses on high-quality, locally-sourced and seasonal ingredients, treated with love and care. Download a menu below.

The cafe is the brainchild of Bristol’s top barista Alex Zeal and queen of cakes, Bethen Reid,  and serves locally-sourced lunches, tempting cakes and award-winning coffee.

New Brunch Menu!

New to The Epiphany are a gorgeous new range of brunch options. Served all day.

  • Smokey Beans on Toast - homemade Epiphany smokey baked beans on toasted Hobbs House Sourdough with Betty's infamous rosemary butter
  • Smashed Peas - Give peas a chance! Epiphany smashed garden peas, crumbled feta, watercress
  • French Toast - Sourdough eggy bread with creme fraiche, forest fruits and ginger compote, maple syrup and chopped hazelnuts
  • Smashed Avocado - With sea salt & lime

The lunch menu is still available, including frittatas, tarts, salads and soups plus toasted Hobbs bread sandwiches, generously filled with top ingredients. 

Bethen’s cakes and sweets (or gourmandises) are inspired by memories and recipes passed down by her grandmother. Granny Grenouille’s tarte aux cerises, the gorgeously oozing Baccara Moelleux, plum and strawberry madeleines and a selection of friands, flavoured with pistachio, matcha, blueberry, orange and dark chocolate, are not to be missed.

Every Sunday, the menu features a star ingredient that is grown or produced by one of the pair’s many foodie friends. The tarte tatin, made from rhubarb grown on an allotment in Easton, and the soup that uses courgettes and peas from a garden in the Forest of Dean, illustrates Alex and Bethen’s commitment to local fare, cooked with care.

As home to Bristol’s premier barista, The Epiphany at the RWA specialises in world-class coffee. The Epiphany also serves a hand-picked selection of wines, locally-brewed artisan beers and Canton teas.
