What I ate in a day at Bath
Whilst spending the day in Bath, of course I had to indulge in some delicious sweet and savoury treats and it was a cold day so I had already decided before I even stepped of the train that I would spoil myself with my favourite hot drink. I have to say, I loved how many bakeries, Brunch places and cute little cafes there was around filled with fresh bread, giant pastries, baked goods, sweet treats and more, Now lets get down to business …
The Cornish bakery was a very sweet little cafe we decided to have a little lunch in. They had some very delicious looking pasties and I went for the Vegetable Pasty, which was so yummy. The pastry was cooked perfectly and was nice and hot, the vegetables had a nice mild sweet taste but it was so good and a really generous size, so I can easily give this a 9/10.
Many of you know I love a chai latte and it had been a while since I had treated myself to one, the chai latte was very well presented but unfortunately, I was very disappointed in the drink itself, it was not hot at all Luke walk almost sold and I could really taste any chai it taste more like Luke warm watery milk chai latte and for that I will have to give it a 3/10
The Cornish bakery was located in a lovely spot facing the roman baths and very close to the Bath Abby, also just round the corner from an incredible bookstore called Toppings and Company. The price for the Pasties I felt were slightly over priced as I’ve had bigger pastries for less, It was very delicious so it wasn’t as bad however, I would not pay what I paid for the chai latte as it was not worth the money at all. The ladies who served us were smily, polite and friendly and the place its self was clean and tidy.

The Second place I ate at was The Cornish BakeHouse where I immediately locked on to the Giant Meringue's and baked goods in the display window and couldn’t resist the temptation, I couldn't help myself. ‘I mean common, I’m only human’ and you all know how much of a sweet tooth I am.
Firstly, I got a Lemon Meringue which was really tasty and it had that lemon zingy flavour however, like all sweet treats, I could have eaten the entire thing, although as it was pretty sickly, but in the best kind of way. I also found the presentation of the meringue to be delightful and the size was very generous. I don’t think I have ever seen a meringue that big! and the price was so reasonable. I was honestly expecting it to cost so much more, I was very pleased with this purchase and would overall rate it a 8/10. I most definitely look forward to my next trip to bath, as I will be trying another flavour for sure.
Then the Chocolate fudge brownie, I have serious love for brownies and this brownie has to be one of the best brownies I have ever had. It was so Chocolatey and soft yet chewy and gooey and hmmm too delicious. Again I could not believe how affordable the price was considering the size this an easy 9/10 from me, I could have easily ate another 3 of them ‘haha’.
There wasn’t a dine in area but the display window did a very good job of luring people in. However, I will say, I did think the music they had playing was very loud, It felt like I was in a night club and couldn’t really hear the woman serving me. Don’t get me wrong, I like my music loud but not in a place such as a bakery. I was surprised on the prices of the meringues and baked goods. I was honestly expecting them to cost a lot more and I’m not complaining the price was super affordable which made me even more enticed to purchase some goodies. I also felt the customer service could be improved in some area’s, such as the server we had was quite and not very smily. which I get it, I’ve done loads of customer serving jobs and yes the hours are long and tiring and sometimes you can’t be bothered to smile but at the end of the day the smile is what makes a customer feel good. It makes the customer feel welcomed, and it makes the store seem inviting. And happy customers means happy business.
