Bristol Cliffs Cafe closing doors to make way for new owner

BRISTOL — Bristol Cliffs Cafe in downtown Bristol is changing hands and will soon have a new name.

Current owner Celina Ellison closed the doors at Bristol Cliffs on Tuesday, Dec. 14.

Local jam producer V Smiley intends to purchase the business from Ellison and call it Minifactory.

In addition to continuing as a coffee shop and bakery, Minifactory will also serve as the production headquarters for Smiley’s existing operation, V Smiley Preserves.

Ellison purchased the bakery in 2018 after having managed its previous iteration, Bristol Bakery, for eight years.
