8E Chelsea Road
The team at 8e revel in sourcing and curating all of their favourite things – from coffee to food and booze – in one place. So be prepared to find Wiltshire haslet and Larkhall plums rubbing shoulders with Colombian beans from Extract in Bristol and Sherborne IPA at this Bath indie. The team are just as passionate about creating an exceptional customer experience, whether that’s pulling the perfect morning espresso, crafting wholesome lunch plates or providing an epic range of craft beers for post-work revelry.
Food and drink is driven by the seasons here and 8e’s enormous windows mean the weather outside dictates the vibe within. In winter darkness, for instance, soft lights glitter amid a collection of plants, creating an ideal atmosphere for an amorous evening spent sharing a bottle of full-bodied red.
Check out the stunning floor that reveals layers of colour and stones from times gone by; also the walls which see the cafés love of abstract art often showcasing the work of talented local artists.
