Colonna and Smalls is like a laboratory filled with mad scientists – bearded, improbably handsome coffee geeks – all talking very quickly! Yet despite the equipment and coffee jargon covering the walls, the staff make tea drinkers feel welcome and offer a range of soothing cakes. The wooden furniture is Spartan, but comfortable. Free wifi too.

Tried coffee all over London, but had to go to Bath to find a really good one. The service and knowledge of what they serve is fantastic. When in bath you need to try it.

If your idea of a great coffee comes from Costarbucks then you must visit to have an education is what proper coffee tastes like. The cakes were also superb, staff very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Glad I don't live in Bath otherwise I would spend too much money going there everyday!

Being there many times... Last time in August it was total disappointment. Not avg. but quite bad coffee without any test. It was McDonald level. But this place was always place of perfectionists and I believe it was one off experience and will try again and let you know.

I have gone for coffee at C&S for quite a while and recently decided to attend one of the courses that they offered. The course I went on was the 1.25hrs Filter Brewing Course with Maxwell. The 1-2-1 session was very informative and was almost a cross between a food and science lesson. I would definitely recommend this course as... More

If you are in search of good coffee then this is the place to go as the staff are very knowledgeable, but lacks atmosphere.

I love my coffee and when on holidays always search the best places for coffee. Recommended Colonna & Smalls by friends and trip advisor. This is a modern bright and welcoming coffee House, think Apple store for Coffee. Would have to say more for the coffee purist than your average drinker, I had one of the choices of espresso blends... More

Collonna and Smalls is a cafe infamous for its prestigious yet approachable take on coffee. With its friendly staff and subtle discouragement of milk and sugar, this cafe truly embodies the meaning of coffee expertise. Despite the cafe taking over a fairly large structural space, Collonna and Smalls has chosen a fairly minimalist approach with their interior design. With a... More
