Always perfect

Best restaurant/café in Wells, by a long margin.. Always clean, friendly, atmospheric and healthy! Plus the added bonus of their organic food shop out the back.

Very nice café, vegetarian meals very good with plenty of choice. Not the case for vegans, unfortunately. Offered soup, jacket potatoes and salad or vegetable curry. What I wanted was something I cannot/don't make for myself. A pie, a pizza, something with pasta and sauces. Quite disappointed.

As locals, we visit this cafe every time we visit Wells. It offers fabulous, extremely tasty, reasonably priced vegetarian food in a relaxed setting. Everything is made on the premises and the kitchen is visible, which is a good sign. Quiches, pizzas, hot dishes, salads, dessert of the day, cakes! I wouldn't go anywhere else!

There's nothing to dislike about The Good Earth! While touring the area to interrogate local estate agents about property for sale we'd worked up an elephantine appetite. Fortunately and not a moment too soon we were pointed in the direction of The Good Earth. It was everything starving visitors to the town could wish for: delicious casseroles, lasagnes, salads, breads,... More

The Good Earth Cafe has been consistently serving good food in a pleasant cafe for many many years. It has never failed and you can be sure of having a lovely meal on any visit. Do give it a try.

The Good Earth always serves delicious and nutritious meals. Staff are friendly and services is very good; meals come quickly. it's a little different to most cafe's - it's a little rustic.

The food here is wonderful! It's all vegetarian but don't let that put you off if you are a meat eater, the range of choice and quality of produce makes every meal delicious. There is a lot of seating in this cosy restaurant however popularity means it can be tough to get a seat at lunchtime! Get there early or... More

Met a friend for coffee/tea this morning. Ordered an Americano, with a hot milk side But was offered cold milk. The coffee had no taste, so decided the second drink would be tea. I was given a tea bag floating in a cup of hot water. Disgraceful! I paid nearly £1.70 for that! Wouldn't make tea at home in a... More

I have visited the Good Earth several times over the last few months, I had been a regular customer years ago, but the last few visits I get there at 1.15 lunch time, and they NEVER have any jacket potatoes left why? Surely for the price of a potato you could keep them going a lot longer. Otherwise a great... More
