Society Cafe

Airy cafe situated in a listed building in the heart of Bath

Housed in the corner plot of the beautiful listed buildings on Kingsmead Square is Society HQ. One of two outlets in Bath, this large and spacious cafe is a real find.

Choosing the coffee roast is a team effort here, and the baristas often get together for cupping sessions at local roasters Round Hill. Two regularly changing espresso and two filter roasts are available, plus specials such as cold brew in the summer months. Serious about creating a cup to suit each customer, the team is friendly and knowledgeable.

In summer the outside patio is perfect for people watching, while inside there are lots of seating options – from the sociable large tables, to a quirky basement nook where you can squirrel yourself away.

A gallery of artworks and free Wi-Fi, plus attention from owners Adrian and Jane Campbell-Howard complete the experience.
