So glad we found Darcys, the coffee was tasty and the carrot cake the best we have ever tried. All the food looked so good we will be visiting again to try some more. Very friendly and a great customer service. Thank you.

Stopped off here for coffee, best decision we made. Lovely tasty coffee & served by happy owner. Brightened up trip to a wet & windy Bath. Definitely a hidden gem & would go back to try the breakfasts as looked scrummy.
