Delicious coffee and the most yummy sausage rolls!

This is my son and daughter-in-law's favourite coffee shop in Stratford. They are locals, sadly we are not but it's now traditional to visit here when we are in town.

It's great to find a nice independent coffee shop like this, great coffee, really nice cakes, much better than the average tasting, bog-standard stuff you get in a Costa or Starbucks. The place needs tidying up a bit though, the back room is a little tatty, black marks and scuffs over the wall, small holes in the wall, same on... More

We always like to research good independent coffee shops whenever we go to visit different towns & cities & looking at the reviews for Box Brownie, decided to try it. We were not disappointed, the coffee was excellent, strong, but smooth with no bitterness & obviously very fresh & made by people who know their coffee. The selection of home... More

We always go to this small coffee shop on our visits to Stratford. The coffee is excellent, as is the service. Cakes are divine - carrot cake, brownies, egg custards...... Gorgeous nutty biscotti too.

We're always in with family and friends. No one ever has a bad word to say about it because the coffee and the service is great. It's such a lovely place and we always feel welcome (even when we turn up with our baby and her ginormous pushchair!)

I always drop into Box Brownie when in Stratford town, about once a month . The coffee is second to none,the service is always polite and friendly, and the Carrot cake is the best I've had for a long time. The shop is situated in Henley street adjacent to the Jester statue. On a warm summer day a pleasant hour... More

When my youngest daughter returned from 16 months working "Down Under" full of praise for the coffee bar where she usually got her breakfast when in Sydney my wife and I took her to BB. This was her comment and covered her coffees in and between all the major cities, except Darwin, in both Oz and NZ. Unfailingly pleasant and... More

Nothing to add to all the reviews. I worked in Stratford for three years and discovered BB. Brought my wife to let her experience the fantastic coffee and cakes. Now frequently drive from Birmingham to Stratford for a coffee. Sad really, but very much worthwhile. If you in Stratford do not go to the chains. Try BB but keep it... More
