Had a couple of coffees in the Society Cafe on the Corridor, Bath (doesn't have its own review page). Really good coffee at a good price, with friendly staff and a good setting.

The Society Cafe is a quaint little coffee shop that was just a block or two from our rental flat in Bath. We loved the quiet charm, and the extremely helpful and personable staff. We stayed in Bath for three nights, and started two of our days here. Thanks for the hospitality, and for offering visitors something unique.

very nice coffee, the best flat white in southwestern UK, location central, terrace available and free wifi. People friendly but seem at times lost. Usually very busy but always relaxing.

You can't go wrong with this place, always great coffee, never disappointed. They've made a real effort on the decor, head downstairs to get away from the business of the streets.

The atmosphere in this café is very cute and quaint, the drinks are reasonably priced and the staff are very very friendly and outgoing. It's perfect for a catch up with friends and there are some plugs around the place if you want to find a café to work at!

Have had my morning tipple here a few times, also their other gaff across town. Always very agreeable. It's coffee and hits the spot, handy location too. Nuff said.
