I love coffee. Love it. So I don't take this lightly when I say that it's definitely worth paying Box Brownie a visit for a top coffee. Deliciously smooth blend and perfectly foamed milk. I'm much more fond of coffee than cake but the "legendary brownies" certainly live up to their name. They're pretty big servings though, so if you... More

My wife, kids and I are regular visitors here. The coffee is amazing and we always receive a warm and friendly (but not over-the-top) welcome. The one thing, aside from the coffee, that keeps us coming back are the bacon rolls - they are fantastic! It never ceases to amaze me how so many places like this can't get something... More

This is a great little coffee house - great atmosphere, really good coffee and lovely selection of food. What impressed me most though was the really friendly welcome you get and excellent customer service - somewhat refreshing from the tired and robotic generic "enjoy your drinks" response/culture you normally get when visiting the large chains.

let there be more independent coffee shops like this in the area! Had an espresso, the coffee creme was good and the coffee was well balanced. Shame that it closes too early! left work at 4pm. Managed to get there for 4:45. Didnt have a good chance to enjoy the espresso!

I lived un Stratford for over a year and I have to admit I really missed Italian coffee while living in the UK, as I am from Barcelona. But visiting Box Brownie was also a nice going-back-home for an hour. Good service and great carrot cakes!

We visited Box Brownie Coffee on a day trip to Stratford. The coffee was some of the best we have ever sampled and the cakes and sausage rolls were outstandingly good. Box Brownie Coffee is only small but has some great decor and a relaxing ambience. Well done guys. We will visit you again when in town.

We came in for a coffee during a day trip to Stratford upon Avon after reading all of the good reviews and we weren't disappointed. In fact, the coffee wildly exceeded our best expectations. In London and England generally, it is extremely difficult to find good coffee, especially if you are used to Australian and New Zealand standards of coffee... More

We have been here before, and decided to stop and sit outside for a coffee. Firstly, we were disappointed there were no children's drinks, such as a babycino or child's hot chocolate or hot milk. We ordered two lattes and one espresso-nothing for our daughter. Our server was very sour-faced, and when my husband joked that he hoped the coffee... More

Delicious cakes and drinks made with care. Plenty of space to sit with your laptop/the paper/friends and watch the world go by.
