A Bath institution, The Bridge Coffee Shop situated right on the world-famous Pulteney Bridge has been a coffee shop for more than 50 years and has a loyal following of regular customers. It’s not hard to see why with glorious views from inside over the weir, it boasts that its the coffee shop with the best views in Bath. The staff are friendly and the coffee shop is inviting and cosy with a lovely aroma of freshly ground coffee while you wait.
The owners expanded their family business in 2012 into the shop next door which offers its own menu and seating and is renowned for its display of incredible cakes, a favourite being the cherry and rhubarb slice.
Ever popular for takeaway lunches with local workers and rugby fans in need of a hot pasty or jacket potato and for those who fancy a picnic in the warmer months in one of the local parks or down by the river. The coffee shop offers freshly filled baguettes, with the bread baked every morning, and a range of tasty treats to take away.
Well known for an excellent full English breakfast, it is recommended you arrive early to avoid disappointment as the seating gets taken up very quickly. For an afternoon treat you can’t beat enjoying a cream tea with warm scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam and a pot of tea while you watch the world go by.
