A little haven but go early as it gets very busy. They do a pretty good menu and the atmosphere is chilled and relaxed. A great stopping off point to meet friends or take a moment from a busy shopping day.

We sat outside in glorious sunshine and enjoyed great coffee and the breakfast Burrito which was superb. There are 2 on offer, a vegetarian one and a bacon and scrambled egg one which we enjoyed, it really was superb together with the relish. We most definitely will return. Highly recommend.

My husband and I each got a drink coming off the train. I was impressed by my latte - very rich, nutty, aromatic flavor. Will be back!

Have used Jika Jika in the town mumerous times, so fancying a coffee at the Rec prior to rugby Friday night, purhased two americano coffee's, well I say coffee, we were served a warm brown liquid which did not taste remotely of coffee! At £5 felt we had been ripped off, if you are going to serve coffee make sure... More

Always has been and continues to be the best coffee served in Bath. So sad the big cafe has closed but delighted Jika Jika is still being served in the city. Such a cool chilled out vibe for people who want no fuss. Great music and awesome people!

Bit of of a shame. Had the right look about it but our macchiato was bitter = burnt. It would be great if baristas tasted their own coffees without sugar. Somehow the Italians do it brilliantly just about every time. Don't burn the coffee, please

This place was highly regarded. But I have never encountered service such as I got one Sunday morning. 3 of us sat outside for about 10 minutes, it was completely empty inside. The waitress came out with some food for a neighbouring table, but made no contact with us. Now bearing in mind that we had just cleared the table... More

First heard of Jika Jika in the book 'where chefs eat'. I've now been a few times. Every time the coffee has been spot on (I think of myself as pretty picky when it comes to coffee) and there's always been space to sit, despite being such a small shop. The last couple of visits I went on my own... More

I would class myself as a coffee snob and tend to steer clear of instant coffee and chains that I do not believe offer good tasting coffee. The coffee here is first rate and on my next trip to Bath will visit here instead of my normal favourite Nero. Bravo!

Got myself a coffee before heading to London which I often do. Such a shame that it's undermined by the guy serving the nice coffee and food who sat outside in the nice chairs provided by the cafe, with a roll up and blew out his smoke over the customers in this mornings breeze. Matt and Lee you should probably... More

Description
Jika Jika is the brainchild of Bath, England and British Lions rugby legends – Matt Stevens and Lee Mears. Together they have created this business out of a love for coffee and an acknowledgement of the need for a truly amazing cup in the city of Bath.Open 7 days per week, we are driven by a fundamental passion for great coffee served up by our professional baristas. In the 4 years since opening we have also developed a fantastic food menu created from the best local produce. All of our pastries, cakes and breads are made from scratch, daily in store. We also have an amazing array of loose-leaf teas and a sophisticated Cocktail Menu and Wine List.We hope that Jika Jika will feel like your home away from home and that you enjoy some of the fabulous produce we have on offer for you.We love to hold private events at Jika Jika, whether it’s a Birthday Party, Wedding Reception or Anniversary we can create the perfect event for you. With use of either the glass topped atrium or the whole venue we can tailor any event to your specific needs. Our Head Chef will design the ideal menu, whether that is a sit down dinner, buffet or range of delicious canapés.
