Great breakfast and service!

Arrived into bath by train and walked straight to this little cafe. The breakfast bagel was to die for especially the tomato jam that accompanied it. The waiter who seemed to be working alone was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely go again!

Got myself a coffee before heading to London which I often do. Such a shame that it's undermined by the guy serving the nice coffee and food who sat outside in the nice chairs provided by the cafe, with a roll up and blew out his smoke over the customers in this mornings breeze. Matt and Lee you should probably... More

The flat white was disgusting, I mentioned in other reviews that the fella serving was okay, in hindsight he wasn't now I think about it. Avoid like bubonic ebola.

This is a great quality cafe with delicious food and cakes and fantastic coffee. It is a really unique, independent cafe with a laid back atmosphere. The only thing is, several times that I have been here, a homophobic group, Bath Youth for Christ have been meeting here which really put me and others off going. Aside from that, this... More

The Jika Jika has a very good location near the central train station, and we start here for a coffee and Japanese tea. The tea was okay and the view is very good. I like the atmosphere here.

I'm a big fan of brunch and had heard excellent things about Jika Jika, so I thought why not try it out. The brunch was excellent and the scrambled eggs, some of the best I have ever tasted in a very chilled out atmosphere. The staff seemed very happy and competent and clearly well trained in what they do, as... More

We read the reviews and were very excited to try however we went to the address on George Street to find it has closed down. We went to adventure cafe bar instead which was still good and will review under their name.

When living in Bath, I tried to find the best breakfast eatery around, for those mornings when you just can't face the kitchen! Jika Jika came up top along with Roscoff's Cafe. The food is extremely good, everything is fresh or handmade including the baked beans! Although at first it seems a little pricey, the Full English does come with... More
