Special coffee

These guys take coffee seriously. It is a real pity for me that they don't offer serious food - just a couple of pastries and a sliced loaf cake. I would go here every morning for breakfast if there was more.

Choice of coffee was great and staff knowledgable and helpful. We were mesmerised watching the filter coffee being made as we sipped our coffees - definitely an art in itself! Wish we had a coffee shop like this around the corner from my work - I would be there every day!

Wonderful coffee; knowledgeable and lovely staff - a very special place to go! I loved the retro crockery; the clean deco; the calm ambience and sense of space... All very good for the soul.

I've been meaning to review this place since my last visit to Bath but just couldn't remember the name - its brilliant, a shrine to great coffee and with extremely knowledgeable baristas - they explained how to make a good flat white and which beans are best at the moment and for which drink. Fascinating and enjoyable.

Perfect coffee. Couldn't ask for more! Extremely friendly staff, fantastic coffee - probably the most aromatic and delicious ever! I'm from London. We do have loads of different coffee shops here however nothing as pleasant as Colonna! If you're in Bath - don't hesitate visiting Colonna! Well worth it! Thanks! I'll be back!

I've not seen a specialty coffee bar like this outside of the US. Building on the quality of small coffee producers around the world, Colonna and Small utilise a number of different coffee brewing methods depending on the beans. They have detailed tasting notes and are very helpful in guiding your choice, if you're undecided. We had three different coffees... More

All coffee lovers MUST try this place. They have a board explaining the coffee they're serving and the notes to look out for in tasting. They are 100% accurate, it is incredible the flavours that come through in the coffee. Expertly made.

I'd read about this place before and didn't really understand how coffee could be that different, so when my boyfriend planned a trip for us to go to Bath, I knew we had to visit this place. He's a coffee-buff, so I knew he'd love it! And boy I was not wrong. He LOVED it, I couldn't believe how good... More

Had the best flat white we've ever tasted, with a brownie that was sweet, caramely and it perfectly offset the taste of the coffee. This is a must if you're in Bath and you're a coffee lover!
