Fabulous

We visited Sam's Kitchen twice during our stay in Bath and thoroughly enjoyed the food both times. It looked and tasted good. The cafe was busy each time. Toilet access is poor and unsafe, but not sure what can be done about that. Would recommend and will return. Staff very friendly and attentive.

Almost every dish, cup and saucer used was chipped. The teapot spout was also cracked and chipped and the lid was wedged in place with paper. The toilet is located using steep steps which would prove difficult for anyone elderly or with a minor disability. The food I felt was overpriced. The service was ok but the prices were steep...

Hello there, I'm really sorry your experience at Sam's in Bath wasn't what you had wanted it to be. We tend to use old and vintage tea cups and we don't really mind a chip or two in them. We use large paper teabags and loose leaf teas, the top of which stick out from under the lid; just to... More

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.

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
