"This is how food was before the advent of the supermarket and mass production," runs the sales pitch at this tiny deli-cafe. It certainly ticks all the boxes. Ingredients are British, "100% organic" and there's a real, transparent emphasis on local suppliers. Breads come from Hobbs House in Chipping Sodbury; its Godminster Vintage cheddar from nearby Bruton etc., as you can read on the chalkboards. Crucially, the end products, its gourmet sandwiches and immaculate quiches, taste fantastic. BoB's proclaimed "best brownie in Bath" is very good. It's biscuity without, fudgy within and full of bitter, fruity nuggets of a, presumably, high-quality, high-cocoa solids chocolate.
