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

...but this is a great restaurant that I would recommend without hesitation. We had an excellent lunch. Particularly enjoyable was the vegetable curry, which looked and was delicious. Pleasant staff served, (cafeteria style), and we ate on comfortable, substantial furniture in a busy, buzzy atmosphere.

I normally would not consider a meal to be complete without a bit of meat, but the Good Earth provides a constantly changing variety of well seasoned wholesome 'earthy' food that I love coming back for.
