Really friendly and knowledgable staff who love what they do. The coffee is supplied locally by Roundhill Roastery and is consistently the best latte in town.

In an area fairly crowded with cafes this place stands out for its good coffees, pleasant service and cluster of tables outside in the small square. Although you have to go to the main counter to place your order, for a change it was nice to have the food and drinks brought to your table.

This is definitely a cafe made for Bath. Lovely food, friendly staff and a bit pricey, but nothing to complain about at all.

Honestly the best coffee we had in 4 days in bath. Flat white was delicious. The staff were very friendly and chatty. Nice ambience, clean and lots of seating options. That's all I can say

Whenever I am in Bath I am sure to visit Sociey Cafe: great coffee, spacious and relazxing cafe with both inside and outside space and wonderful staff who are always incredibly welcoming and helpful. Love that they also have Almond Milk (a rarity when buying coffee in the UK!).

Best coffee in Bath. I don't understand why the great British public insist on consuming beverages from the high street chains when the I depends are far superior and mostly the same price or cheaper. This little gem has got it right. Their own blended roasted coffee. Smooth and sweet, no nasty bitter after taste. Lovely cakes and sandwiches which... More

Although i don't think any coffee shops should be classed as restaurants on TripAdvisor, I felt compelled to review this place for it's excellent staff. Initially i was reluctant to try Society cafe, as it is a chain and i'm a big fan of independent places. But since my first visit here 3 weeks ago I've been back 3 times... More

This is the best coffee in Bath and their polenta cake is absolutely fabulous. Look forward to trying their new venue opposite the Guildhall Market.
