Visited 22nd April 17. I had a large breakfast. It's a small cafe with a good option of food. The service is amazing with the all female staff having fantastic customer service skills. The food was of good quality, my own personal preference is not to have streaky bacon, but it was very tasty. The toilet was extremely well kept... More

Not the cheapest, but the food is well presented and fair value. The courtyard is sheltered, with table heaters available. A useful bolt-hole for us persecuted smokers!

We have visited here many times with friends from France, Italy, Spain and Greece. This time just the two of us. We stopped for a tea before going to the Baths then went back for a late breakfast/brunch. The food was excellent using local ingredients and the service very friendly and polite. Try the Electric Bear Persuasion Golden Ale -... More

We loved having lunch at the Courtyard Cafe. Great location, only a stones throw away from the Abbey and Baths. Service was amazing and the good yummy. Loved the atmosphere and best cup of tea around. Did I mention the scones .... brilliant. We sat inside as a bit cold outside, but there were dogs outside and owners with blankets... More

Been here a few times, and never yet written up a report for Trip Advisor - yes had another very enjoyable stop here with a friend at the end of a walk - shared a cream tea and ordered another tea - this was well presented and the staff were very friendly and polite. Prices are on a par with... More

Nice little place to stop for a coffee. Not cheap- but nowhere in Bath is! The cardamom and coffee cake was light and delicious. Friendly service too.

Very nice, tad expensive. Staff very helpful and it was clean. I didn't fancy bubble an squeak so they were happy to swap it with half a slice of black pudding. Only downside the metal camping plate (that seems very fashionable these days) kept spinning around as I was trying to cut my sausage, nothing a paper serviette couldn't sort... More

Seven of us stopped here for snacks and coffee. The three kids loved the pancakes and the doorstop ham sandwiches. The best place we stopped in Bath.

Like a previous reviewer I always loved visiting this cafe on a trip to Bath. Today I was so disappointed by the interior which is cheaply finished and uninviting. Coffee was good, but I won't be visiting again as the whole experience lacked comfort. A real shame...

It is known for using organic and very fresh ingredients so I was looking forward to an enjoyable lunch. We ordered at the counter then selected a table. Homemade soup and sandwiches plus tea took almost 45 minutes to reach our table. We had to rush once it came because we had run out of time and had to be... More

Cosy up in our recently refurbished cafe or wrap up and sit outside in our heated courtyard. Quietly situated a stone's throw from Bath Abbey, (just off Abbey Green -side entrance to Marks & Spencer). We pride ourselves with our warm and friendly service and delicious homemade food. We offer breakfasts, lunches and specialise in sweet treats such as homemade cakes and cream teas. We have a wide range of teas and coffees as well as speciality hot drinks and we're licenced to serve alcohol.
We will welcome you with A BIG SMILE!
