One of Bristol’s most successful food stalls and delivery services is opening its first permanent location in the city.

For the past five years, Little Hollows Pasta has sold their handmade pasta in the Bristol and Cotswolds markets, as well as boxes of home pasta.

But now owner Chris Davis is launching the first Little Hollows Pasta coffee bar and delicatessen.

Serving simple Italian dishes for lunch and dinner service, guests can watch their dishes are handcrafted and have the option of purchasing pasta and other local products at the deli counter to enjoy at home. In addition to pasta dishes, a range of sandwiches and coffee will also be available at the bar.

Minimizing waste and ensuring a sustainable approach are at the heart of Little Hollows’ ethics and Chris sources ingredients locally whenever possible.

He said: “Sustainability is a word you hear frequently, but our goal is to be able to measure what we are doing in terms of our supplies, our energy and water use, as well as food waste.

“It will be something that we are constantly improving, but all we can do is do our best to be responsible.

“Throughout the lockdown we have seen how much support there is for local businesses in Bristol and we want to continue that by showcasing other local producers, using coffee as a platform. “

Chris will work with some of Bristol’s best coffee, wine, beer and spirits suppliers including Clifton Coffee Roasters, Corks and Psychopomp Gin to create an extensive list of drinks.

The cafe will open for coffee and pastries, cocktails, lunch or dinner.

Once operational, Little Hollows will also offer hands-on experience with pasta workshops, sharing techniques from different Italian regions.

All the pasta is made fresh by Chris

Ever since he started making pasta in his Bedminster apartment, self-taught Chris’s dream has always been to open a pasta shop and cafe.

During the pandemic, he took the opportunity to connect with many new customers in North Somerset and Bristol through his fresh pasta box delivery service.

The feedback was so encouraging that he decided to open his first establishment in Bristol on Chandos Road in Redland, close to the best restaurants Wilson’s and Wilks.

Chris, who previously worked at Pinkmans Bakery on Park Street, says: “Bristol has a brilliant culinary and entrepreneurial scene and we want to continue to be a part of it by expanding our offering and route to market.

“The Little Hollows Pasta Cafe Bar will allow us to do so much that we haven’t been able to do so far and reach so many more customers. It will be another incredible step in our journey and we warmly invite everyone to come and enjoy it with us.

“We are truly proud to be the next addition to the stellar range of dining venues already on Chandos Road. We look forward to getting to know our neighbors and being a part of this thriving independent community, with local sourcing and sustainability at the heart of it. ”

Little Hollows Pasta Cafe bar will open in September.
