Proud of their West Country roots, the Wild Café serves a fantastic all day brunch using organic and locally sourced ingredients. Whether you fancy a proper bacon sandwich, smoked kippers, or crushed avocado on sourdough toast, there is something for everybody to enjoy. Go all out and order a mighty stack of fluffy pancakes served with maple syrup and a choice of fruit or bacon. For a boozier affair, pair your meal with one of their signature Bloody Marys’ – it is a brunch staple after all.
 
Wild Café can be found at 10a Queen Street, Bath, BA1 1HE
 
 
Blue Quails Deli

Awarded ‘Best Café’ by the Bath Good Food awards for five years running, Blue Quails Deli is one of the city’s best spots to enjoy a terrific brunch at a reasonable price. Served until 2pm, breakfast offerings range from bacon rolls and the ever popular full English, to porridge and homemade granola. Friendly service, and a lively, vibrant atmosphere round off a thoroughly enjoyable meal.
 
Blue Quails Deli can be found at 7 Bridge St, Bath BA2 4AS
 

The Pump Room

Begin your day in style at The Pump Room Restaurant - one of the city’s most elegant dining establishments. Adjacent to the historic Roman Baths, the restaurant is the perfect choice for a modern British brunch - one which is accompanied by classical music from the Pump Room Trio or resident pianist of course. While classics like eggs benedict, crumpets, and scones all feature on the refined menu, don’t pass up the chance to sample a traditional Bath Bun with cinnamon butter. Heaven.
 
The Pump Room Restaurant can be found at Abbey Chambers, Church St, Avon, Bath BA1 1LZ
 
 
The Thoughtful Bread Company

What better way to start your day than with freshly baked bread? Pop into the award-winning Thoughtful Bread Company and sample some of the city’s best freshly baked goods. In addition to very tempting pastries, the café’s menu includes a hearty porridge, scrambled eggs and toast with jam. Pick up a loaf of their delicious artisan bread to take home too, and perhaps a couple more pastries while you’re at it.
 
The Thoughtful Bread Company can be found at 19 Barton Street, Bath BA1 1HG
 
 
The Kingsmead Kitchen

Tuck into a hearty brunch at local favourite The Kingsmead Kitchen. Using Bath-based suppliers, the café’s seasonal menu features traditional fare with a European twist. Classic breakfast dishes include a full English, omelettes and a proper bacon sandwich, whilst the coffee is strictly Italian. For something a little different, order the Shakshuka – a delicious Middle-Eastern dish of eggs baked in a spiced tomato sauce, with feta cheese and a generous slice of sourdough bread.
 
The Kingsmead Kitchen can be found at 1 Kingsmead Street, Kingsmead Square, Bath BA1 2AA
