called in on a wet Bath day and had a really lovely cream tea. The lady owner is most friendly and makes great scones and teas. The cafe is right within view of Bath Abbey and close to where the buses stop.

Such a lovely little cafe. The cream tea I had was amazing and so filling, the strawberries on the side were a lovely touch. The two ladies working here were so friendly and welcoming. Would 100% visit again.

I loved the cream tea so much. Everything inside the place is decorated as Alice in Wonderland, the detail of putting different tea cups creating a "messy" table is just lovely and the scones are superb. Highly recommended.

We quite often pop in here for a coffee as it's the best coffee we've had in Bath! The staff are always very friendly and the coffee is reasonably priced. They also do a good selection of homemade cakes and snacks.
