“Bad overpriced food”

Description: A small cafe serving hot food and coffee in Bath

We ordered two tortillas and one sandwich. Very disappointed with all three; lukewarm tortillas, gritty unwashed salad straight out of a packet, and they even got the sandwich wrong (too salty, bad quality of very fatty bacon). And we paid handsomely for such an awful lunch. Better stay clear and choose one of the other probably equally overpriced but hopefully better cafes in central Bath.

We stopped by for a coffee on the bank holiday and ended up staying for hot food and pudding. Delicious looking tortillas tasted just as good, and the brownie was the best I've ever had. Good service with a lovely waitress/barista who made us feel very welcome. Very much an independent café with a unique style. The only downside was the back room was a little dark, but some very pretty flowers helped brighten it up!

Made by Ben has real potential and Ben is a super guy with real passion and ability, but I think probably would benefit from employing somebody with specific front of house skills to knock staff into shape, or just be totally assertive and tell them what to do and to do it right - get that right and we're all with you. C'mon Ben, You Can Do It!

Fabuolous looking tortillas tempted us in. We sat in an icy, charmless back room to eat a potato quiche. Wish we'd have continued down the road to Sam's kitchen...
