6 of the best brunch spots in Bath

16th August 2017

For most of us, brunch is a real indulgence. It’s something we simply don’t have time for during the busy working week, so we relish the chance to get a weekend away and enjoy a long, leisurely brunch.

Bath is known as one of the best cities in the UK for food and drink, and its brunch offering is pretty terrific too. Here are just 6 of the many fabulous places to tuck into a scrumptious brunch in Bath:

  1. Wild Café. This Queen Street café is the home of amazing pancakes. Indulge your sweet tooth with a stack topped with blueberries, bananas and maple syrup, or a savoury brunch with bacon, eggs and more.  Even better, all ingredients are top quality and locally sourced from Bath and surrounding areas.
  2. Blue Quails Café and Deli. How about this for the perfect morning? Guests in our Argyle Riverview Flat – situated in arguably the most beautiful spot in the city – can stroll out onto the world famous Pulteney Bridge and pretty much straight into one of the best brunch spots in Bath. Blue Quails Café and Deli on Bridge Street offers an enormous variety of different breakfast options, from poached eggs, pastries and croissants to granola with fruit or a full English. The café uses locally sourced organic produce, all dishes are freshly made and prices are reasonable too.  
  3. Roscoff Deli (Rosarios). This is a very niche eatery indeed, not only serving Italian food but specifically – Italian breakfast food. Enjoy a taste of something completely different at this independent café tucked away on Northumberland Place, with a range of authentic cakes, sweet pastries and gorgeous breakfasts to sample. And of course, Rosarios (as it is known locally) serves the best Italian coffee in Bath.
  4. The Green Bird Café. In Margaret’s Buildings (right next to our dramatic garden property Brock Street and very convenient from Catharine Place View too), you’ll find the friendly Green Bird Café with a great view of the street. Watch the world go by as you tuck into breakfast and brunch classics, as well as more interesting dishes such as butternut squash and chorizo hash topped with avocado and a lovely poached egg. 
  5. Boston Tea Party. If you’re looking for a bustling, lively atmosphere to perk up a sleepy mid-morning, pop into Boston Tea Party on Kingsmead Square for brunch. Choose from a full breakfast or a light bite, topped off with great teas and coffees. For warmer days, there’s plenty of outside seating and even an iced coffee special or two on the menu.
  6. The Pump Room. Now, for a more extravagant brunch. The Pump Room Restaurant at The Roman Baths is not only a beautiful historic venue, but it also has a top-class brunch and elevenses menu. Dine until noon on poached eggs, smoked salmon and hollandaise, sweet pancakes, croissants or Bath buns with cinnamon butter – and enjoy a cheeky glass of fizz or a Bellini cocktail at the same time. Heaven!
