I went in for a coffee and a slice of cake today for a rest from Christmas shopping. I asked for a Cappuccino and a slice of cake. I was told quite bluntly to get the cake myself with the plates and napkins provided, I thought this was ridiculous considering it came to a total of £6 - I would... More

This is a lovely cafe! They've done a great job with the decor....it looks really rustic and cosy inside! I had a mocha and croissant when I visited. The mocha was nice and a good size, the croissant was great too! There is a lovely upstairs seating area with windows looking down on the street.....perfect for people watching! The first... More

Enjoyed a couple of visits to this coffee shop when visiting the Christmas markets recently. Both coffee and tea were very good and there are plenty of tempting cakes to try. I had a slice of the chocolate cake which was very very good (although a bit on the expensive side).

Visited here for lunch whilst enjoying the Christmas market. A bit on the expensive side but coffee was very very nice, paninis were lovely and crisp and served on a funky looking chopping board. Red velvet cake was stunning. I would visit again

The cakes looked great we ordered one each. Noone was happy when we tasted them. They were heavy and dry. I ordered a tall black coffee with milk. It was half a cup and not overly warm. Sitting upstairs was nice. Such a pity about food, drinks and attitude of the staff.

Stop at this cafe! Shared a delicious panini and cake with a friend. Had the best smoothie I have had in the UK, large and full of fresh fruit. Woulf love to come back to try something else. Couldn't fault it. Just a shame that they don't have more seats.

I ordered an espresso, a white hot chocolate and a latte. The waitress arrived with a long black instead of an espresso then charged me 40p extra to change my drink. The White hot chocolate was also about 40c instead of about 65 which left it feeling cold. The coffee was also over-extracted. I would have given 1 star but... More

This coffee shop is in the perfect location near the Roman baths and it was the ideal stop for a refreshment. We stopped for coffee and cake (the best chocolate cake ever) it was the best! The staff were very friendly and helpful when choosing what coffee to have. I fully recommend and hope to visit again sometime.

We met our daughter for coffee during half term week. The restaurant is situated in a very old building close to the Roman Baths and they specialise in home made cakes and pastries, snacks and excellent coffee and other hot and cold drinks. You are asked to find a seat, place and pay for your order and your order is... More
