Chapel Arts Café Bath review

First stop on my tour of Bath last month was Chapel Arts Café, a lovely little vegetarian café tucked away from the main tourist traps. In fact, if you do fancy grabbing a bite to eat, don’t be put off by the strange entrance – follow the sign down the steps and into the rather unassuming-looking door and you’ll find a hive of friendly activity inside.

I was greeted by Mark Heather, the owner of Chapel Arts Café and shown to their ‘découpage’ table with lots of 80’s cut-outs that I couldn’t help pouring over when eating my meal. When chatting with Mark, I discovered that Bath is actually home to a few vegetarian eateries with varying styles (which is great for any veggie Londoners looking for an excursion without the hassle of ordering veggie food in a restaurant) but I have to say that there’s a real friendly vibe at Chapel Arts that you don’t find in most city veggie restaurants. Around me sat families, friends of varying ages, and their happy chatter was a welcome addition to the cosy interior.

As a nice little lunch, I ordered a Mediterranean Flatbread and cup of tea. The flatbread was clearly made in house, a little raggedy and crisp which I love. The topping of olives, peppers, tomato, rocket and more were akin to a healthy pizza and I ate it up pretty quickly, while planning my trip around Bath using the guide I’d received from the Bath Visitor Centre.

I don’t know about you, but travelling always makes me a little shaky, and I was able to calm myself and enjoy the food and atmosphere at Chapel Arts Café. I would recommend it as your first stop if you’re visiting Bath, or for a lunch no matter what your diet preferences!
