An excellent vegetarian restaurant with great choices and very special puddings! Sometimes difficult to get seats at peak times so choose your moment. However well worth a wait, or come that bit earlier! But don't miss it!

My first visit to this place despite having seen it in passing. The town was packed as it was market day and I wanted somewhere more peaceful. I popped in here as had met the owner previously and he inspired me to visit. The coffee was excellent and there were lots of private and cosy places to visit. Cake was... More

We love this place. You cannot help but be affected by the 'feel good' and 'tread lightly upon the earth' ethos of this restaurant/food and gift experience. We both ate the veggie quiche which was lovely with caramelised onion. So good that even as a meatasaurus I still felt fully replenished afterwards. The new whole food section is a must... More

Can't believe I haven't ate here before. Real wholemeal food with a great selection, good atmosphere and was very busy. I believe they are moving locations which I'm guessing has something to do with it's popularity and the size of the place. Would recommend to anyone who likes vegetarian food.

We chose to eat lunch here on the basis of positive Trip Advisor reviews. It was very busy which is always a good sign. Very rustic and no frills but the food is freshly prepared on the premises, very enjoyable and great value for money. The lemon tart course certainly hit the spot. Well done Good Earth !! Quality establishments... More

A homely welcoming restaurant, with a lovely selection of different cakes to accompany, a pot of tea or a choice of different coffee's. Lunches are healthy and delicious. Its a great place to meet up with friends or take the family for a treat. Prices are competitive, but they have the edge, in that their meals are all freshly prepared,... More

Very good food It's a little tucked way, but Wells is pretty small anyway, so - well worth a visit when you are next in Wells!

I have had two meals at this restaurant, the second shared by me and my two daughters. They all loved the food considering that they are not Vegetarians! I had a curry and one of my daughters had a pizza. They both loved it and asked to go back again. This restaurant is easy to get to from the Wells... More
