We often go to the Good Earth for a quick delicious lunch, the food is always excellent and it has evolved offering a more eclectic vegetarian menu with fabulous results every time. It is very reasonably priced. We are never disappointed. Deserts are always special. We love the canteen quick service. It will change your opinion of vegetarian food.

Great cafe/simple restaurant just outside the centre of Wells, in a quiet location. The food is counter service, all cooked in the kitchen. Nice vegetarian food that is hearty enough to satisfy non-vegetarians. I got the impression they regularly change the menus so everything is a "special". The staff were friendly and enthusiastic. There are set of small, rustic-looking rooms... More

Had lunch in the Good Earth today and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. I'm more of a carnivore usually, but loved the lasagne and salad. I will definitely be returning and would strongly recommend the Good Earth

What a wonderful atmosphere. Friendly, welcoming and a pleasant happy buzz. The lady serving me was charming and efficient in a busy environment. The pizza was mouth watering and the best I have eaten away from home. Salads freshly made and a good variety - a meal in themselves. The coffee was to die for and so cheap. I don't... More

I met up with some friends at the café and I was pleasantly surprised about the variety of food on offer. I decided to try the quiche and salad option and an elderflower drink. Lots of customers where going for the tasty pizza - it was selling pretty fast. I enjoyed every mouthful of the dishes of the quiche and... More

Really yummy, filling vegetarian food. A nice change from all the other panini selling coffee shops of wells. Welcoming and friendly. Will return when next in wells.

We visited here one Friday lunchtime after spotting it on a previous visit to Wells and we were really glad that we gave it a try. The restaurant is one of a few units which appear to be part of the same company - a lovely looking grocery shop selling fresh fruit and veg as well as other dry goods... More

Having liked the Good Earth's facebook page, I have noticed what I can only describe as daily food porn [Dish of the day Photos] and have daily wanted to be able to go to Wells to visit. Sadly I work too far away to be a daily customer but The Occasional Saturday is utter bliss. Wonderful veggie choices, hubby had... More

Arrived during a sunny Friday lunchtime at peak holiday time with high hopes given reviews. Really wanted to be positive, especially as companion and I determined to have a lovely time. However, walked into zero atmosphere, really lacklustre and disinterested (self) service that was also extremely and uncomfortably slow and inefficient. Food competent (balanced and seasoned well) but portions too... More
