Lovely friendly service with great, fresh food and top ups of tea. It would benefit from a deep clean to make it 5 star. There was a basket of bread on the floor, the loo and wash basin needed a good scrub and polish and the basement kitchen looked a little chaotic. Would I eat here again - yes.

The sandwich and coffee combo was well done. Only draw back was sitting on our own in a cold upstairs room as the three tables downstairs were all taken. Otherwise would have been excellent. Took five minutes longer than I would have expected to toast some sandwiches.

A lovely little place with good coffee, good food and good staff. Ben and his suppliers pride themselves on making the finest food using the finest ingredients, and it shows.

Walking along Walcot St. And stumbled across this hidden gem. Small hidden cafe with seating down and upstairs. Excellent food, GF options vegetarian all home made. A must visit on this forgotten road.

Had a superb lunch at MBB. Tortilla superb. Proper sized Scotch Egg too! Lovely salad too . Finished off with the best cornflake crispy cake ever..... apparently the peanut butter slice was also superb. Excellent coffee too. Some of the seating areas were being decorated so some of the earlier criticisms probably not valid now. MMB is well worth a... More

If you fancy a really tasty coffee Made by Ben certainly delivers. However the display of food tastes as good as it looks.

A pleasant and quite tiny cafe/bistro on Bath’s popular Walcott Street, there is a tempting display of dishes in the window and in the glass counter immediately inside the door. The miniscule dimensions continue in to the eating area at the rear, where there is room for around ten people. Perhaps there is further seating upstairs, I’m not sure. Otherwise,... More

We stumbled into this place after an atrocious visit to a restaurant up the road and it made all our troubles melt away. The restaurant itself is a house and all the rooms are decorated in the most peculiar way. Lots of home art and the rooms are perfectly odd. Every minute while my friends and I ate we spotted...
