Had a delicious bowl of homemade soup here. A real winter warmer on a cold day in Bath. Very friendly staff and a good choice of cakes on the menu. Ideal for some time out from trekking around the shops. Very relaxing. Seating is upstairs.

This is another fabulous independent eatery we uncovered when in Bath. The display of cakes and buns in the window was quite simply mind-blowing. I had to go inside and investigate. Very hard to choose so don't be in a rush. Good coffee, paninis, cakes plus choice of rooms to eat in upstairs. It seemed to be quite toddler/baby friendly... More

We were the only customers and ordered just two drinks but the service was deadly slow. Good place to sit and watch the tourists but you pay for the location. The Mocha was prettily presented.

We have visited Jacobs before for coffee and cake but went in for lunch this time. 3 of us had pie and mash and 1 had a panini with 2 hot drinks, 2 cold drinks and 2 brownies - I was shocked when the bill came to £51...the pies were dry and came with one spoonful of mash each. The... More

A cosy coffee bar that serves great coffee/chocolate/tea with delicious cakes. The bar were your order is a bit chaotic however it was very busy today due to the Christmas Market and once you are given your plate for cake collection then it's easy to collect. Comfortably sofas and chairs to relax in. Polite friendly staff. Lovely visit. Thank you.... More

Great location in the centre of things, does mean it's always packed inside or outside. Trick is to get a seat first then order! Tasty cakes, very homemade and reasonable price for central Bath location. Didn't have savory food but what we saw looked and smelled delicious with plates always empty. People tend to move on, it's not like the... More

We went for a much needed break while walking around Bath Christmas Market and was drawn in by the luscious cakes in the window. We decided to sit outside as it was a lovely day. My daughter was treating us but nearly had a heart attack at the exorbitant price of nearly £20 for three pieces of cake, one small... More
