Amazing setting by all the big attractions

Sit outside right infront of the roman baths and the abbey. A little pricey for what it is, but the location more than makes up for that. Really tasty food, and a delicious chai latte too.

Dropped into this coffee shop on a weekend away to Bath. Fab views and a lovely place for people watching. The soya coffee was hot and creamy, but the woman serving behind the counter was abrupt and unsmiling. Unusual in such a friendly town; shame. We didn't go back, there are too many other lovely places to stop and enjoy... More

Had the Italian Hero panini. £6 so quite pricey and had to wait quite a while for it, though there was seating outside and we were entertained by the street theatre. Once it did arrive though it was well worth the wait. Extremely tasty, rocket salad, Italian meats and cheese with char grilled yellow pepper. Delicious. Good selection of coffee,... More

2nd time I have had coffee here to my regret, simply the worst coffee in Bath. Poorly made, over extracted, burnt coffee. Same experience each time; at least they are consistent!

Fab location overlooking the pump rooms and the cakes are nice but hugely expensive. Our order was delayed twice and sitting outside is a mistake if you dong want to share with the pigeons.

We always pop in here when we are in Bath, their clotted cream scones are worth the trip! This is a tiny coffee house with more seating upstairs. Although they are very expensive (I paid just shy of £16 for a tea, coffee, scone and sandwich) they do offer a 2 for £5 offer on selected cakes and I managed... More

The most mouth-watering tea cake display beckoned me in, and I was not disappointed! They taste as good as they look! The cider and apple cake was to die for... I wish I had the recipe!

Looked for a cafe after the roman bath tour, this was around the corner. Staff are very friendly. Coffee is delicious and selection of cakes is to die for. Well worth a visit!

I absolutely love Jacob's Coffee Shop. The coffee is great and the cakes are delicious. I also love the location and the historical feel of the building. I have now been there twice and I will continue to go there for coffee every time I visit Bath.
