My husband and I went here for lunch, very nice atmosphere. The cheese and ham panini was the best panini I've ever had and the banana milkshake was lovely! Highly recommend this place!

Popped in for a coffee - it's a really nice cafe with a lot of character - and that does also mean it's a little cramped! But I liked it charm. Coffee was delicious.

Very nice coffee house, seating inside and out, great cakes and coffee! Visited here twice and tried the pie and mash which was also great!

Popped in here for a coffee. The room we sat in upstairs was cold, unwelcoming. Bare walls. Poorly decorated. No sense of style or welcome. The coffee, flat whites, was very poor, flavourless even. Could not recommend.

Have been here several times for coffee and cake. Seating upstairs in several rooms which feel casual and comfortable.

Stopped in for a quick coffee and cake at this well situated little cafe. The cakes were fantastic, and the coffees and drinks quickly made and well presented. We sat outside on an unseasonably warm February Saturday afternoon, and if you are bothered by pigeons then you might want to sit inside. We enjoyed it however, especially the 'pigeon man'... More

The service was friendly and welcoming. The coffee and scones delicious. Cannot recommend this place enough. The location is great too, right by the Roman Baths. It even came with an over eager street performer on our visit. Great place to warm up for the bathes. Beware of the pigeons.

We sat outside in the Abby Courty courtyard and enjoyed a good cup of coffee with friends. Table service, once ordered inside, was friendly and fast. No hastling...we sat there over a cup of coffee for ages, watching the performers. Indoor seating and yummy looking food available up stairs. Coffee reasonably priced. Lovely afternoon.

Just dropped in for a quick coffee which was excellent with a nice chilled vibe (in February anyway-can't vouch for a Saturday in August)& efficient friendly service. Nice cake too 👍

What do you look for in a coffee shop? Me personally I like unique bespoke cakes and decent Coffee (obviously) We trudged around Bath, and I kept noticing in the windows off the various coffee shops we past; the same cakes. They looked massively manufactured and the opposite of what I wanted. Saw the reviews of this place and gave... More
