Extremely quick service even though very busy for Breakfast. A little impersonal though but efficient. Food very good and agree with other reviewers decor seems a tad confusing now. Doesn't open till 9am which was a drawback.

Popped in for a quick lunch. Decor isn't to my taste, but it is clean and the staff were welcoming and attentive. Very good sized portions, and tasty food. If you are looking for a good, simple place to grab a bite to eat then I'd say it is worth a visit.

Had a very late breakfast here - they do an all day one and we had the vegetarian. Very warm welcome, excellent service, relaxing but chatty atmosphere. Food was well cooked, mushrooms slightly over cooked for my liking but as someone who has a lot of veggie breakfasts out this one was good value and did the job perfectly! I... More

We ate here because they advertised vegan selections. Unfortunately, it was before noon so we were forced to order from the breakfast menu. We got a fruit smoothie, which was thin and not all that tasty, and a cheese and tomato panini. The service was okay, but the food, at least what we got, was average, at best. If I... More

So sorry you were disappointed with your visit. We do advertise & offer Vegetarian options but not Vegan, as our Vegan choices are very limited. There is a great Vegetarian café opposite called The Green Rocket Café which does Vegan food (it is run by Vegans) and is also a local Independent business. I would definitely recommend trying there next... More

We went in here staring hungry and ordered the pasta special. Unfortunately only one serving was available but the other party ordered a jacket spud and that looked good. The pasta dish was ideal and for Bath, the prices are very reasonable. I found the staff helpful and friendly as well.
