Lovely cakes and tea. The barista understood exactly when my mum explained how strong she liked to drink her tea - and he managed to make the nicest cup of tea my mum has ever had from a cafe!

True coffee. Simple as that. They also have a great tea selection and a very freindly staff. After hours of walking in Bath it is the perfect place to sit down have a coffee a bite to eat and continue walking.

I was introduced to this cafe by my son in law, who works upstairs, and is a regular customer. I can see why he likes it. Not only is the coffee excellent, but it is a great place to use wifi and do a bit of quiet work. Can eat outside or in, depending on the weather. Staff are friendly... More

I'm a coffee snob and this was good which isn't always easy to find. Friendly staff. £2.70 for a decent sized cup........

Coffee here is exquisite, the flat white is highly recommended. All drinks are skillfully made and picture perfect. Almond croissants also recommended. They also do almond milk, as well as the regular choices.can sometimes have to wait up to five minutes for your drink but its always worth the wait.

I live in Bristol but travel to Bath regularly, and I will always stop here for a coffee. Lovely calming atmosphere. I would particularly recommend the flat white which is absolutely delicious. They also have a really good selection of teas and tasty cakes.

Discovered the Society Cafe one morning. It opens early, which is great. Light and spacious inside and seating outside. The coffee is good and a decent selection of cakes. Really great spot to have a coffee and read the paper - I will come regularly. Great on Saturday - park at Sainbury"s walk up before 0800 and then visit the... More
