30Amp for small bathroom

Hello all,

I have a small bathroom (maybe 80 sq ft). I have one dedicated 12/2 from the breaker box to power the bathroom. (Lights on a separate circuit).

Will one 20 Amp breaker be sufficient to power the bathroom? I plan on installing a vent fan and at least two duplex outlets to run on this feed.

Yes, that's fine, as long as the fan doesn't have a heater built into it. You'd be fine with the lights on this circuit as well.

Make sure all the outlets are GFI protected.
