Description: Boston Tea Party is a small family owned independent cafe group serving simple well-prepared food & drinks made with great ingredients, skill and love. Ethically sourced, affordable, feel-good & excellent quality - made from scratch onsite everyday by people who care about what they do. Bath is our smallest & possibly busiest cafe with rarely a spare seat & usually a queue out the door. The quintessential place to watch the world go by, perfectly perched on the edge of a busy Bath square with loads of outside seating & near all the gorgeous Georgian stuff that makes Bath so popular.

“Wonderful afternoon tea!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

My sister and I visited Bath for the weekend and had a wonderful afternoon tea here, you can tell it's popular with locals as it was very busy!

We were served a range of finger sandwiches (traditional salmon, egg, cream cheese etc) a huge scone between the two of us (with lashings of cream) and three mini cakes (lemon drizzle, carrot cake and a bakewell tart) each - we couldn't finish it all!

Staff were very friendly and happy to top our teapots up throughout! I didn't have a coffee but one of the baristas seemed to be producing some lovely latte art, i'd definitely visit again.

Only downside is it's a little small but i'll let that go :)

Thank you very much for your lovely review. The Afternoon Tea can be something of a beast of a meal, we very often find that we're giving out cake bags for people to take things home with. We're very glad to hear you were very happy with it, as well as your tea. We hope you do come again to taste our wonderful coffee and have a pretty latte art pattern made for you!

Thank you very much for the lovely review. Praise of our products is always great to hear, but praise for our staff (especially the upbeat positive ones!) is even nicer to hear and makes us glow with extra special pride. That you came back for seconds makes us even happier!

“My favourite cafe in Bath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I love this place. Great tea and really good cakes. I have never eaten better orange almond cake which is in addition gluten free. Very relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. Must in Bath!

Thank you very much for your review. We're very proud of our delicious range of cakes and I myself would rate the orange and almond cake as one of our finest (my second favourite, narrowly beaten by the raspberry bakewell).

“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

My favourite place in Bath for breakfast, the West Country brekkie is to die for and the coffee is superb.

We go at least 3 times a week and we love it!

Thank you for your review. While we can get a bit too busy on occasions, it's nice to hear that it hasn't detracted from your enjoyment of our café and our great range of products.
