My daughter is a daily visitor, and my first cup was brought to me in bed during a weekend visit to Bath. I had to get up and visit the shop as it was the best flavoured coffee I had tasted -ever. This is a well run enterprise with a lovely atmosphere and the right balance of expertise and informality.... More

Visited today for a quick coffee, staff were very friendly and smiley. Loved the decor, especially the bike on the wall. Downstairs looked v cosy with nooks to tuck away in. Enjoyed my flatwhite and will definitely have to visit again to sample the vast and varied loose leaf teas available!

I love my coffee. This is lovely, a very good mix of people. I'm a middle aged man but instantly felt comfortable here. There were families with children as well as "hipster" type people. Do yourself a favour when in Bath walk by all the faceless corporation chains and go here instead. Oh and the coffee? Amongst the very best... More

I love this place, for its coffee, friendly staff, atmosphere and also a big YES is the easy to use WIFI. The wifi is so simple to use. No connection issues, no web page to sign up, no time limits. It is simple, and easy and it keeps me there buying coffee after coffee and makes a great office alternative.... More

The service was good , Nice cakes , The coffee was very good & not too over steamed which meant the fat molecules in the milk are not burnt so the flavour isnt impaired . Overall very nice & seating outside is a nice touch also . I will be back again soon :)

My husband often comes here to work during the day and we stop by during the weekend from time to time. It's dog friendly which is a real bonus. I absolutely love the white hot chocolate, it is amazing. The service is always great and it's super clean and nicely decorated. I would say it is a bit on the... More

First of all let me say, we LOVE our coffee. We were so lucky to stop in here! The staff super friendly and knowledgeable about their coffee, they took the time to talk to us. I was mega impressed that they had organic whole milk. But what really impressed us was their cold brew. Not every coffee shop serves a... More

When visiting my daughter who is at Bath Spa University, we always head to Society Cafe. The coffee and teas are second to none. There are gluten free options for my daughter who is a coeliac, the chocolate cake is enormous and the best I have ever tasted. I was there on saturday - 11th October just for a quick... More

We only stopped for coffee here, at the end of a busy Saturday's shopping, and the place was a bit (but not totally) empty, which was not unexpected at 5PM. But the staff were welcoming enough, the coffee was good, and the pot of tea was enough for 2 or 3 cups, with the milk served in 1/4 pint bottles... More
