Day trip to Bath with no real plans so just happened to come across Café Retro. we had filled baguettes which came with a really nice salad and coleslaw. Service was excellent and very friendly. Go hungry because the portions are large.

We had a terrific meal here. Sandwiches and pressed sandwiches were delicious. Also great salads and tomato soup. Milkshake was spot on. Desserts were fun as well. Teas were lovely. Great Service!

My daughter and I arrived at Cafe Retro just as it was opening. It's just a short walk from the railway station and very close to the Roman baths. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. My daughter ordered the breakfast muffin with scrambled eggs...More
