Best place for a coffee (Flat White) in Bath and we Antipodeans know our coffee. The almond croissants are pretty unbeatable too. A friendly relaxed atmosphere and so nice to have a smile as you grab your brekkie rather bleary at 8am enroute to work!

Set in a 'bustling' square with ample outdoor seating and tables, Society Cafe really does do great coffee. Perfect little spot for a break and a sit-down. I would definitely recommend their flat whites (£2.50). They also do Aeropress coffee - which I plan to try next time. Highly recommended.

What a difference a clean. & minimalistic approach can make to a coffee shops ambiance. Society cafe is a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by. It really is a great setting for a rest bite. Service at 5 pm was as good as you'd expect at 9 am! Service was polite & professional and it was... More

He is a bit fuzzy about food and he loves simple and good quality food. I like the taste and decoration. All in all, the coffees satisfied both... More

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.

I love having an excuse to go to this cafe - excellent tea, coffee & cold drinks and yummy cakes, croissants etc! The service is fab - very friendly and you never feel rushed. With the free wi-fi it's an excellent place to sit (in or out) and carch up on emails with a delicious drink and of course a... More

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!).
