The Cosy Club in Bath, England

 This monday my husband had a vacation day off from work and so we had a rare day date while the boys were both at school.  Since we needed to go into town to run some errands we look forward to going somewhere nice for lunch.  We have both come here once before with other friends and this was our first time here together. I was looking forward to tea and cake, but we got swayed by the delicious looking options on the lunch menu.  Just another excuse to return for a heavenly slice of victoria sponge cake.  My favourite thing about being at the Cosy Club is the interior design and atmosphere inside.  Like the mix of grey concrete ceilings with sparkly chandeliers, the collage of art and mirrors on the walls,  the mix of primary colour choices with damask wall textures. It is a great place to stop in after a busy day of errands, shopping, or sightseeing in the heart of Bath.

Quirky, eccentric and playful the Cosy Club 
offers casual dining, drinking and lounging.”

Coffee @ Camden in Bath, England

I headed into town today despite the fact that I will have nineteen children at my house tomorrow for my son’s party, and there is still much to do in preparation.  I felt like being spontaneous and so I met up with my husband on his lunch break to try out Coffee @ Camden in Bath.  Technically it is in Camden which you can get to from the Bath city centre in a mere five minutes.  If you happen to come on a nice day I highly recommend sitting outside.  Their back patio area is very nice and has a picturesque view.  Which was lovely especially when the sun hid back behind the clouds and it got a bit colder.  
My husband ordered an Americano with the Camden Club, which is served with kettle chips, and I ordered a cafe latte and the Frittata from their lunch menu.  The Frittata was delicious and it came with a side salad, bread, and chutney. The best part was being pleasantly surprised by the fact that the bread was still warm.  I could easily order the same thing next time if I do not try one of their five variations of panini. 
Since this was a rare ‘day date’ with my husband, I decided to treat myself to the cupcakes I had seen photos of from their Coffee @ Camden facebook page. I paired my vanilla cupcake with a hot chocolate complete with cream, marshmallows, and sprinkles for a full sweet sugar fix.  It hit the spot.

When you come you must ask about their amazing chili jam.  We bought a very large jar of it a week back from their stall near Milsom Place on a weekend. It literally goes quite well with anything. Toast,  chicken, eggs, crackers, or even just off a spoon. We must have tried it on almost everything because our jar is now almost empty. Otherwise I would have shared a photo with you. Maybe with the next jar. 😉 

Coffee @ Camden is open Monday thru Friday from 9am – 5pm 
with breakfast being served until 11am.  You can view their full menu here.
