We had breakfast this morning in Darcy’s and it was great. Felt like one of those breakfast places in San Francisco, New York or London. Great breakfast, friendly staff with a good chat. Just a great vibe. We need more of those independent eating places...More

Great concept not only coffee, but package acceptance and newspaper delivery to those living nearby. Varied breakfast options, cooked to order, free WiFi, very pleasant staff. We'll be back!

Loved the decor and atmosphere of Darcy’s - clean and uncluttered. Lovely coffee and breakfast - mashed avo and poached egg on toast was a winner for sure! Lovely service as well - friendly and efficient. We’ll be back for sure.

Perfect for a tasty lunch before or after visiting the Jane Austen museum. My mum and I enjoyed frittata with a selection of yummy and unique salads. Ample vegetarian options, really friendly and efficient service and a lovely loo! Hard to beat.

We are an independent, family run café in central Bath. Besides serving a hearty breakfast and lunch daily we also sell newspapers and magazines (specialising in foreign titles). We also have a range of cakes and pastries which go perfectly with our freshly brewed Lavazza coffee, loose leaf teas or extensive hot chocolate menu.
