We went at lunchtime and ate delicious frittata. They are open in the evening as well. There are tables outside as well as inside, some of them communal. The service is friendly and relaxed, it's not fast food so don't go if you are in a hurry.

However the chicken salad dished up was not forgivable, it had several fragments of chicken bones which thankful we managed to pick out and not choke on!!. We pointed out our concerns to staff who on the face of it where apologetic but... More

Popped in here for brunch as we were staying at the nearby Hilton. Very small informal setting. Really fresh ingredients and very tasty. Great salad, lovely coffee, really nice service too. Perhaps a bit overpriced but we both enjoyed it. I even tried the veggie stuff!!

I went here with 3 of my friends who were visiting from France and after sitting for 40 minutes had left without food being brought to us, or a clean knife and fork provided. Service was appalling as they seemed disinterested in coming to the table at all. Then she twice tried to give us all dirty knifes and forks... More

Hopped in here to avoid a sudden downpour and grab some lunch, whilst getting some work done. So glad I did! It's got a great atmosphere, with customers happy sharing tables and staff being more than accommodating. The food was great too!

Lovely quaint restaurant, relaxed atmosphere, food is amazing the chef is a credit to Sams kitchen. When we visited they had 3 training staff so there was quite a delay for our drinks and food due to miscommunication with staff and change of brunch to lunch menus The floor manager apologised for this and compensated us with the meal I...

A friend and I had dinner here. The décor and styling is informal, shabby chic, arty - very relaxed and a bit quirky. Service was very friendly and helpful, knowledgeable. We had good fun chatting with waiting staff. Food was absolutely delicious, portion sizes were spot on, flavours were amazing. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening here and will definitely... More

My daughter and I popped in here for lunch. We are both vegetarians and while this place is not strictly a vegetarian restaurant there was plenty for us to choose from. It was the best lunch I've had on this trip to the UK. Everything was fresh and the flavours were subtle and amazing. I wish I'd had enough time... More

Delicious breakfast, reasonable price, and friendly staff. The place is small but warm. in a charming city like bath, it's normal to have that kind of expectation. would like to go back someday.

Thank Daniel-Lo7
