Scrumptious!

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.

The cakes are amazing, super delicious and cheap (2 for £5). I haven't tried the coffees or teas; bought just cakes on the go. Perfect location, you can buy your cakes and sit in front of the Bath Abbey.

It's one of those places that when you've cracked the process, it all falls into place reasonably well. When busy, you are asked to find a table upstairs first, then come downstairs and order. You then order and pay for the coffees downstairs (along with any cakes you choose yourself) and go back upstairs to await delivery. OK, so how... More

Located in the centre of bath Jacobs has a tempting selection of cakes near the entrance. You pick your own cake and order your tea at the counter and it will be delivered. Both counter service and getting the tea was on the slow side, Inside, you should be able to find space in the warren of rooms up the... More

We found this by chance and didn't realise that it was a bit like a tardice with rooms upstairs that had different seating areas. It was a very relaxed and kind of bohemian feel, loved it!

Popped in here for a snack and coffee at lunchtime as the cakes etc. looked good from the window. We were not disappointed,the paninis were large and full of filling, the cakes were scrumptious and the coffees good. Get a table near the window to people watch in the courtyard. Can be difficult if you buy your food downstairs and... More

Friendly enough service - I felt could've been a bit more on the ball - eg. Show me to a table - but overall good experience. Great location for people watching and good window seats overlooking the abbey courtyard... My coffee was great, along with my croissant. Really enjoyed the background music - indie rock sort of tunes. I enjoyed... More
