Let's drink some Holy water from the water fountain
Croissant with butter and homemade jam, $2.95
You can smell the buttery aroma before you even bite into it, crunchy and chewy texture, with the homemade strawberry jam, just no words can explain it.
 English Breakfast, $5.95
Yes, my all time favourite high energy, high fats English Breakfast. If I have this everyday in Malaysia, I'll become obese in no time. But it was so good, hard to resist, eat first burn later.

Visit the heart of the World Heritage Site. Around Britain's only hot spring, the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water. See the water's source and walk where Romans walked on the ancient stone pavements around the steaming pool. The extensive ruins and treasures from the spring are beautifully preserved and presented using the best of modern interpretation.

Meet Roman costumed characters every day and hear the stories of those who lived and worked here 2,000 years ago. Audioguides in 8 languages, with a special one for children in English and French, are included in the admission price. Enjoy morning cofee, lunch or afternoon tea in the magnificent 18th c. Pump Room, accompanied by music from the Pump Room Trio, and try a glass of Spa water from the fountain. Visit the romantic torchlit Roman Baths and avoid the crowds on summer evenings - the whole site is open until 10pm, last entry 9pm, during July and August.

Rachel Demuth started Demuths restaurant 21 years ago. New Head Chef Richard Buckley is at the helm and creating fine dining vegetarian food.
Demuths was awarded Best Vegetarian Restaurant for 2010 in the Gourmet Britain Awards and Best Vegan Restaurant of the year from the Vegan Society in 2009.
Only 200m from Bath Abbey, Bath’s only vegetarian restaurant is best known for its exciting ‘world menu’. Its individual style of flavours, colours and textures has been earning this busy little restaurant a strong following for all these years.
Open every day for a late breakfast, morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, menus change monthly with the seasons.
As well as the excellent vegetarian menu, there are plenty of vegan, wheat-free dishes & gluten-free options. Local vegetables, breads and cheeses are sourced from local suppliers and as much as possible is organic and Fairtrade. Demuths serves excellent organic juices, lassis and shakes. Their coffees and teas, as well as their entire wine, beer and spirit list, are organic too.
For breakfast, try the Demuths bumper big breakfast or for lunch the Quick light Bite menu for £10.50. Go for the Early Bird Dinner, great value at £14.50 for two courses between 5.30-6.30. Dinner could be baked hazelnut gnocchi with roasted butternut squash, oyster mushrooms, wilted calvo nero, cider cream and thyme pesto, followed by warm pear & chocolate tart or the famous sticky toffee pudding.
The Demuths ‘Green Seasons’ and ‘Green World’ cookbooks are available to buy from the restaurant or the website, and if you’d like to learn how to cook the Demuths way, Rachel Demuth runs the Vegetarian Cookery School in Bath.
