Fantastic coffee which is carefully made with the help in choosing what best to drink with each bean. I have been here a few times now and the coffee beans are always different. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and is a great setting, a must to visit! The awards in the window speak for themselves.

When entering Colonna and Small's you can tell the owners and staff are passionate about coffee and as a bit of a coffee snob, it is very much appreciated. The staff were knowledgeable and happy to talk about their product and each coffee we had (4 over 2 days) was well made and delicious. On day 2 we decided to... More

Decided to check this place because of the reviews-staff were friendly and helpful-had to wait about 10 minutes for my cappuccino (£2.90)-tasted ok-not outstanding as I expected as per the reviews-looked impressive but sadly was not very hot-in fact I drank it within a few seconds-could have downed it in one. Coffee should be hot, not lukewarm. Wouldn't go again.

I am from Melbourne, and love a good coffee served in a pleasant environment, but being told that sugar "dries out" my drink is ever so slightly condescending... If I want sugar isn't that my choice? Particularly if I have already tasted the coffee?

Dear Reviewer, Melbourne is indeed a lovely place. Good to hear your from there. It is of course your choice and a choice is what you would have been given.(please do let me know if you truly felt otherwise) We don't refuse sugar. We do find it very valuable to give recommendations with the coffees we proudly prepare, serve and... More

On a day trip to Bath I did some on line research about places for coffee and kept coming across references to Colonna and Small's. Strangely, trip advisor reviews were inconsistent, but we decided to give it a go, having looked at C & S's own website (which I would recommend anyone else to do before visiting so that they...

Long wait (we were advised) for a flat white that didn't live up to the hype. It was OK but came away thinking it was all a tad "up itself".

What more can I say but great coffee and cake? If you dont want a coffee when meeting up with friends or family you might be somewhat restricted but it is a coffee house after all and the best tasting decaf I have had in a while despite the cups being a bit on the small side.

Coffee was good, all reasonably priced, the cafe is beautifully done and the cakes looked lovely too. HOWEVER the experience was a bit pretentious for me to be honest. Made to feel like a peasant for wanting for a latte and sugar. Asked for a coffee, not a lecture.
