Walk down Broad Street on a weekday lunchtime and you'll notice everybody is heading in the same direction - towards the door of a quaint, unassuming café named Maximillions. Something of an institution in Bristol, the ethos of this eatery is simple and effective - great food at unbeatable prices. As I'm new to Bristol, my friend simply couldn't wait to take me to Maximillions. I didn't fully comprehend her excitement until I arrived and saw the lavish display of carvery meats - there are often up to eight on offer at one time. Joining a long yet fast-moving queue of eager (and clearly regular), customers, we contemplated our choices. I found the aroma of black pepper chicken irresistible, whilst my companion plumped for sweet chilli and mango glazed ham. The friendly staff heaped hot chunks of meat into our chosen types of bread roll (which, by the way, are humungous) and then offered us up to five of the many salads on offer. Feeling like a child in a sweet shop, I eagerly selected spinach, peppers, marinated feta, salami and olives, and watched as they were crammed into my sandwich. Eat in and you get the additional choice of two sides (I chose quiche and spicy chickpeas) - all for an incredible £3.80. If you're in a hurry, you can grab a coffee to take away for a mere £1. And if you've time to spare, free WiFi is available, so you can surf the net while you enjoy your lunch. The decor is just as varied as the food, with Japanese umbrellas appearing alongside didgeridoos and Egyptian rugs - all genuine finds brought back from the travels of owner Mr Frances. An individual gem in the middle of the city. Add some Maximillions variety to your lunch hour.
