Scambled egg bagels and coffee - delicious

Went here after a walk and needed some warming up. Pretty trendy place but definitely not style over substance. Coffee nicely presented (with a swirl) and good taste. Yes its quite expensive but I think worth it. Bagel with scrambled egg very well done and my son loved his macaroni cheese... Will come back..,.

Came for breakfast, bacon sandwiches, eggs benedict and coffees, all very nice but I think they should invest in some better bread for the sarnie's rather than standard sandwich loaf as the bacon etc is so nice it deserves a better home. Good looking place, nice staff and importantly clean toilets!

this has a perfect sunday morning ambiance. there is a small menu which is no bad thing and would recommend the eggs benedict with salmon and coffee or tea reading the sunday papers by the large windows overlooking chelsea road.

I'm a regular at the Chelsea Cafe because its a great place for breakfast or lunch when you want something more fun that toast or a sandwich. I think the beetroot and goats cheese salad is great, but the poached eggs and ham is also really tasty when you want something simpler. Great coffee too, and service is reliably good.

I recently moved to a house about 20 yards from the Chelsea Cafe and I'm now spoilt for great food and coffee! They do one of the best flat whites in Bath, and with this much quality competition that's something to be proud of. The food is also excellent including the ever tempting cake selection. Yes you can find cheaper... More

I happened upon this lovely cafe by chance a couple of weeks ago and have been back several times since. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the coffee is amazing. I have to admit I have sampled their cakes and I can recommend them too. Definitely worth stopping by.
