10a Queen St, Bath BA1 1HE
If you’re looking for a delicious brunch, lunch or afternoon cake stop in Bath, then look no further than Wild Café, a quirky independent place tucked away down a back street in the centre of the city, serving fantastic food and a cheerful buzzing atmosphere. ‘Simple food made with quality ingredients’ is their motto, and their menu is enough to make your stomach rumble. We loved it so much when we stopped there for lunch on the first day of our trip that we returned the next day too!
The decor is a mixture of vintage-inspired furniture, up-cycled tree branches and electric blue paint, with the kitchen situated right there in the café, behind the counter. It creates a fun, busy atmosphere – but it’s also honest and transparent. When you overhear the cooks talking to each other about the meal that you ordered, you can get really excited about it.
For a small place, they have a great variety of food options on a fresh and vibrant menu. I loved the chicken, avocado and homemade mayo sandwich, and my mum loved her sweet potato and hummus sandwich. Eggs Benedict also seemed to be a speciality of theirs: I saw several people eating it across our two visits, and when my brother ordered it for himself and split open his perfectly soft-boiled egg to let the golden yolk pour out, I understood why. They also serve a great variety of cakes and drinks, if you only have time for a quick stop. We would particularly recommend the coffee and chocolate cake (the central plate pictured below!)
Food costs in the £4-9 range, whilst drinks are around £2.
They also have a small B&B next door, which includes brunch at the café. Find all their info here!
