vibrant, seasonal, healthy
There is no need to book a table in the cafe area in advance. We also have additional seating within the play space so if you have booked a play session you are welcome to order food and drinks to eat in the play space.
We are a welcoming boutique family friendly cafe in Redland. At Skyboat Café we think that healthy food, amazing coffee and artisan bakes should be enjoyed by all, big and small bringing you food that is vibrant, seasonal and healthy.
The Kitchen is headed up by co-founder, Stefani, who brings over a decades worth of experience in the catering industry to the role. She has worked in Michelin kitchens, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and Pied a Terre, and worked under the most prestigious chefs in the industry including Raymond Blanc, Gordon Ramsey, Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
Stef leads a team of amazing and passionate foodies who put their all in to making the food as delicious and nutritious as possible At Skyboat, all our superfood salads, bakes, cakes and light lunches are made on site with fresh local produce. Everything is made in house, from our hummus to the samosas. Our varied and seasonal menu caters for everyone including vegan, gluten and dairy free diets.
We aim to tread lightly on this planet, reducing our carbon footprint wherever possible. Our milk is delivered in 10-litre stainless steel reusable vats to avoid plastic waste and we recycle over 80% of our in house waste. We source organic produce as much as possible, balancing this with our drive to source from local suppliers in order to reduce carbon emissions as well as supporting local producers. Our suppliers have been chosen for their low carbon footprint as well as for their great produce and highest standards of procurement and provenance, and all of our suppliers have a story to tell.
At Extract we find the highest quality, best-tasting coffee beans which are carefully roasted to create the most delicious speciality coffees we can. It’s the care and dedication to every aspect of our craft which make Extract’s coffees taste better than anyone else’s.
But making coffee better is about more than making better coffee. Truly ethical coffee is about making coffee better for people and planet.

All of our Organic milk is solely sourced from the Godminster dairy herd, Godminster Manor Farm, Bruton, the neighbouring farm to our dairy unit. We are very proud of our association with Godminster and enjoy working alongside their team on the processing of their milk. Godminster are world famous for their range of cheeses under the Godminster vintage label.
We work very closely with the Godminster team. Richard Hollingbery, owner of Godminster has a simple mantra – nature repays those who treat her kindly. A great outlook, we think you will agree.
It’s simple: we work hard to make the finest teas available at the fairest prices.
We’re obsessed with how and where our tea is grown and processed. Most of our teas are beyond organic, some are biodynamic – and several are from abandoned tea farms where the plants now grow wild. Others are from ancient tea trees in the forests of Yunnan and Vietnam.
At Bertinet we only ever use natural, wholesome ingredients and ensure that they are the best we can find. We never use flour improvers, processing aids or enzymes – ingredients that are often used to save time or increase shelf life. Instead, we invest the time and skill needed to create real, honest bread that looks, smells and tastes amazing.
