Shakesperean Coffee

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a boutique coffee place in the small town of Stratford-upon-Avon. It was steps away from the famous Shakespeare's birthplace. Weather permitting you can sit outside and gawk at passers by while you take your coffee sip by sip.

We have visited the Box Brownie for breakfast twice now and on both occasions have enjoyed excellent service and delicious bacon baps. It's small and a little basic but the coffee is very special and it has a great atmosphere. It seems that many locals use it so that has got to be a good indicator in a town with... More

A great find whilst looking for an early morning coffee on the way into town from our hotel. Definitely the best cup of coffee we had over the weekend and just the rocket fuel we needed to wake us up ready for a day exploring. So good we made a beeline for here the next morning too.

Wondering whether I can find a top quality coffee house in Stratford-upon-Avon. Well, what do you know. I could tell that it is a great coffee place for the coffee lovers, soon after I entered. Great smell, small place but seating outside on this busy walkway of shops.

Rather hit or miss lately. Some times quiet but lately coffee shop taken over by locals using as office: making conference calls, phone calls. .Bad coffee shop etiquette ? Ok for large coffee shop perhaps , but this place is tiny. Also rather loud lady barista, other staff including the owner Ben - faultless and will give you tips for... More

It was a cold day and we needed warming up. We had our two little dogs with us so needed a friendly place. The coffee was one of the best we had tried and the cakes were scrumptious. Thank you for making us welcome and accommodating our dogs. We will come again for sure. One thing they could do is... More
