We stopped for afternoon tea after visiting the Roman baths. Lovely cup of English tea, and not tea bags(!). Also had a warm scone with jam and cream. Delicious. Friendly staff.

Lovely place, ideal for a break after a visit to the Roman bath. Had one of the best chai latte ever and a delicious slice of carrots cake. The cake was moist and tasty and for the first time I enjoyed the frosting as well (I am normally not a big fan, but this one was really good!). My boyfriend... More

On our trip to Bath we popped into this coffee/cake shop and bought the banana and chocolate cake. It was amazing, you could really taste the banana and the delightful nuggets of chocolate, a wonderful treat and I wish I could order more online to be delivered !!

Visited twice in 2 days. Fantastic choice of cakes and pastries. First day we had coffee, tea, a chocolate brownie and a scone with jam and clotted cream. Next day we had a ciabatta and another chocolate brownie as it was so good the first time round! Really lovely and fresh food and great location with indoor and outdoor seating.

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

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.

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.
