Cortado Café Review: Mad about empanadas!

Located right by Pulteney Bridge, Cortado is a trendy café which is run by Argentinian/British couple Fran and Sophie. 

On the menu, they serve brunch, lunch and a range of seven tasty empanadas including chicken and chorizo or blue cheese and mushroom. We went for brunch, which was reasonably priced and delicious! The ‘mini’ Full English was really yummy and they have a range of seasonal pancakes on offer. We tried the blueberry, coconut yoghurt and granola ones which were amazing… definitely go for those! 

Cortado Café also offers a range of hot and cold drinks including smoothies and milkshakes, plus an Electric Bear beer and wine too. They have three types of deluxe hot chocolates: salted caramel, chilli chocolate and coconut bounty… perfect for the run-up to Christmas! Even the alternative milks are no extra charge – an absolute win for our lactose intolerant readers!

They also sell a small range of products at the front of the store, including their own branded keep cups. As there isn’t too much seating capability inside, we recommend going mid-week at quieter times so that you can enjoy it for yourself more. Worse comes to worst, you can always get their yummy food to take away!

Cortado also has an important focus on sustainability. They use local suppliers, like Bertinet Bakery for their bread; Larkhall Butchers for the meat used in their specialty empanadas and Bath Soft Cheese Co. for their award winning Bath Blue cheese. 

As always, Bath Time encourages you to support local businesses so go and visit Cortado, a lovely café with equally-lovely owners!
