Have been in here a few times. Its always busy. Coffee is good, choosing cakes from the array on the window can be a bit of a fight sometimes! The seating upstairs is limited but have always found somewhere to perch, and plenty of jugs of water to help yourself too. Have only ever had coffee and cake here. Cakes... More

A seagull flew over and grabbed my panini. The staff got me a new one so I was very pleased although I think my friends will be bringing up the time a seagull took my sandwich for a while. It was really nice of the staff to give me a fresh coffee and panini. Coffee and panini were very nice... More

In 2 weeks in the UK this was the only place that we were able to have a cup of tea made of loose tea leaves and not tea bags. Coupled with delicious carrot cake and gorgeous atmosphere made for the best morning tea of our trip.

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 !!
