Tucked out of the way, not unduly busy but obviously popular. Friendly staff and exotic coffee. Unfortunately I just didn't really like the coffee, which is probably my preference rather than their error.

Came here after lunch for a coffee, very beautiful interior and nice relaxed atmosphere. I am no coffee connoisseur but the coffee is very different from what you would find in any other generic every other shop coffee chain. It tasted very clean and warming, it was nice to sit and read the papers and relax. The garden outside looked... More

Always heaven. Coffee, setting and service as it should be. There is even a left-handed flat white, it's that good.

Fantastic choice of many single varietal coffees to try in pleasant surroundings. Tea and hot chocolate also available for non coffee fans.

Visiting Europe for two weeks and checked out the local espresso bars in Oxford, London and Bath. Clearly, Colonna and Small's it on the cutting edge and take their beans seriously. I found the staff helpful and friendly and of course interested in their coffee. Two downsides for me - i guess i could have asked for sugar but it... More

There's no denying it, this place offers a really good brew but as one who takes sugar ( albeit just half a teaspoon of brown) I wasn't offered any in my drink as they do state that sugar ruins their coffee. As it turned out the coffee was palatable without it, delicious in fact but it would have been nice... More

SPOILER ALERT: if you are annoyed by friendly people who are proactive and passionate about sharing their knowledge of coffee with their customers DO NOT COME HERE. Go anywhere else. You may be annoyed by both staff (who will talk to you about coffee) and clientele (some of whom have beards, exposed ankles, canvas shoes, interesting hairstyles and multiple iThings).... More

Bath is getting spoiled for coffee choices. For consistency and good food, the excellent Jacobs feeds the drive, but for an actual tasting experience, Colonna and Small's is, if such a thing exists the haven for the coffee connoisseur. The blackboard shows the various blends of coffee that are being sold at the time, with an equal variety of brewing... More
