The Bristol Espresso Bus
5775 E. Broadway Blvd.

STAFF PICK: If you haven't discovered the fine brew and melt-in-your-mouth scones at The Bristol, you've probably at least noticed the double-decker red bus parked across from Park Mall on East Broadway. Take your pick: Simply drive through, which entails ordering the Joe through one of the side bus windows, or park and climb the spiral staircase to the upper level for a lovely repast. We did the latter on one rainy morning last spring and saw that stretch of Broadway from a whole new level. The top deck is covered, but still open-air. Rain drops from hours of morning rain had been wiped from the tables, each of which was adorned with a charming little vase and flowers. The Bristol is small, but big on class and character. The convenience of the drive-up window is unbeatable, and we wish these buses would pop up on a half-dozen more streets around town.
