We popped in for a quick coffee and tea this morning. Very helpful staff and nice atmosphere. Enjoyable drinks and lovely toasted teacake and Millionaires Shortbread that we didn't mean to have but they looked so appetising...... Good access as there is a lift. Nice to be able to sit outside too...but not today as it was 2° !! Well... More

A quick business lunch required but what we got was a delicious homemade burger 'special' which was a little pricey and just a little too long to wait. Mind you, the place was busy especially for about 1330 when we got there. Service was quick but only outside tables were available which was fine. The specials board had a couple... More

Have enjoyed the delicious breakfast here now twice after recently moving close by. The produce is wholesome, fresh, extremely well cooked and tasty. The poached eggs with bacon on toasted muffin was exceptional. The coffee and tea are very nice. The staff are friendly and very attentive. It's obvious that the majority of the clients are long term repeat business.... More

Sitting outside just now with a vine growing over the pergola above I could be abroad. It's dog friendly so that makes it a lovely half hour relaxation with good coffee. I never eat here so can't really comment but if you want a rest from the hurly burly of Bath here's the place to come.

I don't know why but I was a little disappointed. A number of reviews gave a glowing report so when I visited I suppose I was expecting something just a little bit special. The menu was not that extensive, a couple of specials were on offer one of which was vegetarian The main menu is made up of a variety... More

You could tell that this place was going to be good by the clientele which was all local. We were on holiday for a week in Bath and we went here twice. The food is absolutely terrific! The chips are actually, no really, actually chips! Made from potatoes and not extruded from some machine. OK it's not fine dining but... More

The secret garden cafe is tucked away inside the garden centre on the first floor accessed via stairs or a disabled lift. It serves a small selection of food but good portion sizes. We went at lunch time on Saturday and it was very busy hard to find a seat. The service was good and prices reasonable.

This is a garden centre but the cafe is the star. Great quality and value food, a varied menu and friendly staff. Well worth a visit whether you want to buy plants etc or not.

I met up with my friend for lunch to celebrate her Birthday today. She is disabled and uses a wheelchair and the facilities are really adapted well with easy parking, a ramp to the Garden Center and a lift to take you to the Secret Garden Cafe. We sat outside on their lovely terrace with a pergola and vine, and... More
