Description: Boston Tea Party is a small family owned independent cafe group serving simple well-prepared food & drinks made with great ingredients, skill and love. Ethically sourced, affordable, feel-good & excellent quality - made from scratch onsite everyday by people who care about what they do. Bath is our smallest & possibly busiest cafe with rarely a spare seat & usually a queue out the door. The quintessential place to watch the world go by, perfectly perched on the edge of a busy Bath square with loads of outside seating & near all the gorgeous Georgian stuff that makes Bath so popular.

“THE best coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This was the best Cappuchino ever . The girl who creates the coffee did it with artistry and care and delivered the best looking and tasting coffee I have ever had . A delight by putting the chocolate sprinkles on the coffee before pouring the milk in as it unfolded in front of your eyes!!! Well done and mi commended her on it personally too to make her day

Thank you very much for the lovely review. Our baristas take great pride in not only the quality of the coffee they serve, but the artistry of the patterns they pour with their milk. It is lovely to hear that their work is appreciated and it really does make their day when it's complimented!

“Favourite café in Bath”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

I used to go to BTP when I lived in Bristol and was pleased to see the quality is consistent throughout the chain. The coffee and smoothies are great and I love the breakfasts, the ingredients of the West Country breakfast are always so fresh and tasty. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Sometimes it's a bit crowded inside but if anything it adds to the charm and sitting outside is good if it's not raining.

Thank you for your review - good to know we measure up to our counterparts in Bristol! It's unfortunately all too true that we can get rather cramped, but we're glad to know this adds to our charm rather than detract from it.

“Best breakfast in Bath”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My boyfriend and I were students at Bath University, and one of the few luxuries we allowed ourselves as often as we could was a bacon sandwich and delicious coffee at the BTP! It has many happy memories for us and, 5 years on from our university days, whenever we're in Bath it's the only place we go for breakfast. The food is delicious and I agree with another reviewer that it's the perfect place for people watching. And you never know, you might find your special someone there :-)

“The Boston Tea Party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We discovered this place a few years ago very early one morning when stopping off in Bath on our way to Cornwall. We had the most wonderful breakfast. Ever since, whenever we come to Bath we come to this cafe. Simple in decor, it is quirky, friendly, atmospheric and the food is always great, wholesome and tasty. We finally got a chance to have a proper holiday in the Bath area this week and we popped in today for a drink. Life suddenly felt very good...

“Quality coffee and great people watching.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

The coffee here is top notch, delicious pastries too but the best part is siting outside watching the world go by, whether in the winter with the heaters on or in the summer shaded under the tree. Only downside is the inside is too cramped so tend to avoid rainy days.
