This was my second time here and this was just as bad as the first. It simply reinforced my first opinion. I had a meeting here and it was awful for a number of reasons. Arriving early in the morning to the sound of an elderly gentleman behind the counter talking, or should I say shouting, about cricket. What was... More

I stop by here most mornings on the way to work to pick up a coffee (and occasionally a freshly baked, still warm, pain au raisin if I'm feeling naughty). Their coffee is delicious and the staff are lovely, having my coffee going before I get a chance to order. Haven't eaten here, but the food does look good and... More

This cafe has cultivated a slightly rough and ready look inside - shabby chic without too much chic. It fills up with a whole range of locals and others, like me, filling the odd hour away from home. It's difficult to choose from the range of goodies ... My friend and I shared a 'jewel cake' (a slice with delicious... More

The Chelsea Cafe is in a suburb of Bath, about 1 mile from the city centre, in an area I know as Weston but the locals describe it as Chelsea village. So plenty of free car parking can be found here. There is certainly a Bohemian atmosphere here, aided partly by this cafe being in a lovely old (and probably... More

The Chelsea cafe is the local cafe to Chelsea road, perfect after a walk around Weston. The cafe serves lovely coffee and lovely home cooked food, I particularly like going here for brunch - the poached eggs and beans on toast are a particular favourite!

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.
