hidden down a back alleyway next to the Arts Centre, don't let the entrance put you off. This really is a well run place with an extensive Veggie menu, in fact everything is Vegetarian. They must be doing something right because the place was full when we arrived. The food delicious as was the wine.We were looked after by two... More

It was wet, miserable weather. But heh, it's Christmas in 2 weeks, and the renowned Bath Christmas Market is in full swing! So, we need a hot drink, and a place to achieve this seemed remote as all the obvious street level places were full to the gunnels. Purely by luck we chanced across a sign at the side of... More

My wife and I had two flatbreads - one Italian and one Mediterranean - which were tasty but at £8 each I thought pricey - although as the cafe is likely a fundraiser for the arts centre then perhaps more understandable.

Excellent little cafe quite different from the posey places that abound here. But like a student hangout mismatched furniture and toilets like a church hall but the food and service are excellent.

Had lunch here of parsnip & apple soup. It was a busy Saturday afternoon & we were lucky to find seats. The menu is interesting & slightly quirky. Very friendly atmosphere. The soup was great. My husband had the chocolate & pistachio cake - scrumptious.

Have been a couple of times and always had a great meal. Tasty & fresh, as well as good value. Beats a high street chain any day.

The food was very nice and the service was also very good. Unfortunately it was quite expensive for a cafe lunch and the serving sizes were quite small.
