The person who served me seemed to have alit of knowledge and passion about Coffee. I asked him about the options and he gave me some very insightful answers. The place has a lovely local atmosphere which... More

The cafe is a great asset to the Newbridge area of Bath. There's a nice feel to the place and the coffee is pretty good (though the cake I had was a tad stale). The service seems a little aloof though; when I ordered my coffee, I asked the chap serving whether it would be brought over to my table,... More

The staff really make the place because they're always very friendly and welcoming. It's a nice place to stop for a coffee, and seems to be a hub where a lot of the local community go to meet up. The coffee is good - I've only had food there once, but the whole menu sounds pretty tasty. Prices are about... More

Nice food, amazing coffee, good service and always busy. I know a lot of local people who go there and swear by it as one of the best cafes in Bath. They are also very family friendly and have books for children etc. Food is all locally sourced and at an ok price. Would definitely recommend!

The Chelsea cafe is such a lovely place to stop, any negative reviews MUST be a one off. The staff are always cheerful, very genuine and friendly. This would make us love a place anyway ,however the food especially the breakfasts are great, all locally sourced and not bad price. We wish this venue was open in the evenings as... More

Popped in here for a coffee as we were staying around the corner. Very friendly staff, seating outside and very nice 'real' coffee. Didn't eat any food as it was a very hot day but the choice looked very good.

I'm afraid that my experience at the Chelsea Cafe was one that left me thinking that this place is going to disappear up its own backside. Why are the prices in 'p' and the only thing fuller about the fuller english breakfast was the price!! £8.50, I mean 850p... Note for the owner / manager - sometimes other customers don't... More
