Went for a recent birthday lunch mid-week. Food was good and everyone enjoyed what they had. Service was slow, with waitresses preferring to chat to their mates who had popped-in, rather than looking after us. Plates left on table, wine glasses empty, with customers left wanting. Could have been much more friendly and attentive, so unlikely to return. Shame.

The best warm chicken salad You could ever have. Excellent value for money in a family friendly environment.

We booked into Andre's Cafe for Sunday lunch following an ordination service at the Cathedral. The lunch was excellent - no complaints at all. The bottle of wine we bought was I think, a little bit overpriced. I would not hesitate to recommend this for the service and quality of food but if you want wine then I would suggest... More

Wells is a delightful, small and ancient city. It has many cafes and coffee shops but Andres is the real deal It is a few steps away from the main High Street bustle, opposite St Cuthberts Church. You can park in the Waitrose car park, upstairs if you will be more than 2 hours, and have a coffee and cake... More

Andres's is a great location for small private functions. I recently went there for a Saturday night meal for my mother in laws 80th birthday. Andre is very flexible with regard to the menu and as most of our group were veggie, he added extra choices and was also open to suggestions for anything else that we required. One of... More

We enjoyed a late lunch at Andre's one Saturday afternoon. The service was very good and the food was well prepared and well presented. Very tasty! I can recommend Andre's if you are looking for good food at reasonable prices with friendly staff. It's a great spot to people watch too!

This little cafe served up the best scrambled egg and the best toast ever. Really, really good. Sadly, the filter coffee was a little weak for my taste. I would warn - it is advertised at £1.60 with free top ups but they actually charge £2 per cup. I ended up spending £2.40 more than I'd expected. Still, the breakfast... More

I ate here the other day and had the bacon, Brie and cranberry sandwich and a cup of tea. My husband had the homemade roasted tomato and basil soup and it was out standing. Will be back very soon :)

first impression was a buzzing charming cafe, nice decor, friendly service. However,........we ordered the homemade tomato soup - or not - the skill to open a tin of Heinz tomato soup must be huge - absolutely revolting, such a disappointment after the appearance, and nice waitress.

Now really, you think my soup tastes like its from a tin????? That is to me an absolute insult. In 28 yrs of being a Chef I have never EVER had a complaint about my soup and to say it tastes like its from a tin, tells me that you have absolutely no idea about quality food. My tomato soup... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance. We were on the way to a wedding and needed food. We stopped for lunch and the special was fantastic. We went back the next day for breakfast and it was also really good.
