Five Grains has established a stellar reputation for its Lebanese fare. Located on Bristol’s uber-central Baldwin Street, close to offices and the bustling shopping district of Broadmead, the café attracts office workers and daytime shoppers alike, who are drawn in by the concise yet thoroughly tempting menu.

Five Grains’ stripped-back, wood-and-brickwork interior is complemented by large floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the modern space in plenty of natural light. Manoushé is the quintessential Lebanese street food – pressed dough baked with a topping of wild thyme, sumac, sesame seeds, salt and oil. The simple menu makes decision-making all the easier, as there are just four savoury options: za’atar, akkawi, lameh bajin or sabenekh manoushé.

We pulled up a pew outside, not long before my za’atar manoushé arrived topped with mint leaves, lettuce, chopped tomato and cucumber. It was fresh, filling and made for the perfect lunchtime meal. Invigorated by a delicious freshly squeezed juice, I certainly felt more awake than when I arrived. My partner had a toasted Lebanese flatbread generously filled with akkawi cheese, olives, pickles, tomato, cucumber, sesame seeds and lettuce. There are sweet manoushé wraps too, which come drizzled in honey, or slathered in Nutella, homemade sesame paste or peanut butter, with a choice of toppings including banana, kiwi, crushed hazelnuts, strawberries and a sprinkling of pistachios.
