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

Great, reliable, dark, smooth coffee and an amazing selection of cakes including THE BEST almond croissants in town. It also has a lovely, laid back atmosphere which is best enjoyed outside of the really busy periods. We far prefer to sit inside (upstairs) so it's advisable to pop up and check that there are places available before you order. There... More

Super quality bread pud, staff slightly snotty though very polite, not going to joke with you, only speak BBC English, rather like Upstairs in Upstairs Downstairs. Really nice upstairs seating. The quality of cakes and teas is excellent. I do recommend.

We had lunch here on both days we were visiting Bath. It's good value good food with efficient service and not in the easiest of premises (lots of going up and down stairs) Slight criticism that both vegetarian choices included Goats cheese - why is it that everyone thinks vegetarians favourite cheese is smelly-sock goats cheese? They have a little... More
