Amazing lunches

Here the chef prepares a couple of dishes every lunchtime with an incredible selection of salads to go with. I chose the baked salmon with taboulah salad - amazing. Great coffee.

Absolutely charming cafe. The food is beyond delicious and freshly made. There is seating outside and it is a real sun trap. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Highly recommended.

Relaxing and calm cool atmosphere, perfectly cooked Breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. 6 of us ate, and all the food for breakfast came out terrific. Highlight was going to the toilets, an experience none of us will forget LOl. Fully recommend to all especially couples a very romantic little place (good back ground music)

Lovely little foodie cafe slightly hidden from the madness of Bath city center. Delicious and well made coffee, fantastic food with unique service/setting. Brownies to die for and walking distance from shops.

Came twice over a long weekend - on both visits had really good coffee, and lovely breakfasts (poached eggs on great toast). Staff lovely both visits. It is top of my list for visiting next time I am in Bath!

Asked if they had forgotten - waitress was mute, hurried back to counter then came back & asked what ordered, 2nd cappuccino finally arrived was plonked down with no apology or... More

I have lived in Bath for sometime, have been to Sams a number of times and with the number of coffee shops available, would I go to Sams for tea or coffee again, absolutely not. Firstly, I refuse to eat here, even though the food, cakes etc look absolutely delicious, because it is simply over priced. I am vegetarian and... More

Regular stop for coffee and a cake. Friendly atmosphere, I love the music and the staff and friendly and helpful. It is small which encourages conversations with other customers which can be fun. Great cakes, good coffee - cannot comment on the food but it looks good. Well worth a visit when in the bohemian Walcott Street.

I've been a fan of this place for a while now but it has been some time since my last visit. The atmosphere yesterday was relaxed and friendly and the food as ever PHENOMENAL. Yesterday's lamb absolutely blew me away as I'm not normally a lover of the stuff. It was absolutely packed full of flavour and amazingly tender. The... More
