We went there twice, once for breakfast and the other for lunch, and it was great. Caesar salad is really good, and they offer a great variety of other dishes. Also, the place is dog friendly, so the second time we were able to go...inside also.More

Great and interesting menu. Very good coffee with amazing selection of cakes and goodies. BUT what made it a 5 star experience was the staff who were absolutely fantastic! So attentive, helpful and friendly professionals.

Popped in about 4pm for a cup of tea and bit of cake. Service was good , but unfortunately the glasses for water were dirty, the cake on the other hand was excellent as was the tea. The sun catches the terrace in the afternoon...and there’s definitely worse places to spend an hour on a Saturday afternoonMore

We came here for a quick bite to eat and a coffee. The cafe is spacious and rustic looking with modern tones, there’s also an adjoining shop. The menu offers a range of soups, paninis and salads. The waitress who served was friendly and loquacious,...and even told us they were filming the new Willy wonka film down the road. The food came out really quickly and was SO GOOD! We had paninis and they were so tasty. They were just under £10 each so not the cheapest, but they’re really worth it! The coffee was hot and served promptly after ordering. Overall, brilliant cafe for a pit stop. Would highly recommend for couple and friends.More

My wife had been before and thoroughly enjoyed her lunch so we went back. Had a really good table outside in lovely sunshine. Menu is simple but has great choices. I had an excellent roast beef panini and my wife had the quiche and salad....We followed that with 2 nice cakes that we shared. Nice touch that they bring water to the table without asking Only downside for me was that the Decaf tea was quite tasteless but the flat white I followed that with was better Will become a regular lunch spot for us when in BathMore

Past Cafe Luca on a walking tour and thought it looked lovely. Walked back the 15 minutes at the end in the rain to visit it. We were not disappointed. Extremely busy, great atmosphere and the staff are fantastic. If you go there make sure...you have the chicken and coconut salad. Fabulous. Unfortunately they wouldn’t give us the recipe :-). We visited a second time If you’re in Bath don’t miss it.More

We came here for lunch for our friends ( 55th )Wedding Anniversary and don`t think we could have picked a better place , as soon as we walked in we were greeted by a very pleasant waitress and shown to our table as soon as...we sat down she brought us a carafe of cold water and glasses , on her recommendation we all had the special lunch of the day which was gorgeous , Because of the occasion I started to take pictures , our waitress came over and asked if we would like her to take some so we could all be in them so we told her it was our friends Anniversary, We then decided to have some of their delicious cakes and coffee to finish, when they were brought to our table we were told as it was an Anniversary lunch the cakes were on the house , This is a wonderful place with gorgeous food and great service , would recommend it and we certainly will be returning .More
