Bath Brunch, Welcome to the Wild
To enjoy the hazy, lazy glow of brunch, I always head to Bath's WILD Cafe. With its relaxing and gently friendly ambiance, it has a calm and timeless feel to it that is perfect for brunch. Tucked in to the characterful warren of Georgian town houses that make up Bath city centre, this cosy place serves brunch all day, every day.

Wild by name, calm by nature

I love the simplicity of this place. Its one, high-ceilinged room is adorned with vintage travel posters and vibrant colours. The kitchen is tucked in to one corner, and the large windows look out on to a quaint shopping street with pedestrians drifting by. There are large and convivial bench eating tables, or smaller, more intimate settings.

Embracing the tradition of the British Brunch, I opted for the Full English Breakfast and a 'Builders' Tea. It was beautifully flavoured and well-cooked, and exactly what I needed to set me up for the day. Glancing around, it was clear that this is a popular choice at the WILD. Everybody seemed to be enjoying a spot of Brunch, whether young or old, at work or relaxing. Everybody there also looked very calm, perhaps due to a combination of the gentle ambience of the place, which always seems to play serene and chilled out music.

There never seems to be a rush in this lovely place. People come and go, but even when at capacity (about 30 people, I reckon), it still feels airy and relaxed. Beware of the facilities, though! They are located at the foot of an iron spiral staircase, and are not for the feint-hearted. Steep and winding, there is also a very low ceiling to negotiate at the bottom. For me, this just adds to the intrigue of the place. There is nowhere like it in Bath. Those who do venture down below are rewarded by a wall-full of gigs and event posters opposite the toilet door. Well worth perusing.

At the foot of the stairs

The WILD has a great appeal for brunch, which I think should be a calm and unhurried affair. Even the lighting of the cafe is gentle, relying on natural light flooding in from the street. Perhaps that is what I love most about brunch at this place. It feels natural and calm, as all great brunches should.
