Simply excellent coffee. Perfectly crafted flat whites lovingly made. We'll be back for more. Food looked great too, so we'lll try that next time.

“Excellent Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We arrived in Wells on a freezing Saturday morning. As we walked past the Parish Church we saw a sign for 'Strangers with Coffee'. It's quite small inside but you are sure of a warm greeting from the owner, Ivan. The coffee was excellent - a lovely warm welcome to Wells. Some people sitting nearby were enjoying what looked like excellent cooked breakfasts.

This is obviously a quite new venture and we wish Ivan and Chris every success.

“if you know good coffee then you will love this little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Having lived in Australia for a few years I was spoilt with fantastic coffee and when we moved back to the UK I was a little scared at the state of coffee! Then, like a knight in shining armour Strangers with Coffee opened just a short stroll from my house. The coffee is amazing and on par with the coffee in Oz. Needless to say I have become a regular ever since and I look forward to my daily flat white which is expertly prepared by Ivan, and always perfect. Trust me, if you want a good coffee then go here you will not be disappointed. Oh and they make delicious cakes too!

“Best "Flat White" for Miles Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Before "Strangers with Coffee" opened in July this year a rumour went round England's smallest city that an experienced and enthusiastic barista had acquired a small premise opposite the "Hot Fuzz" church in St Cuthbert’s Street. Thankfully the rumour was right to the pleasure of the city's coffee lovers. Since then Ivan (barista and host) and Susan (provider of the menu, cakes and pastries) have become a key part of the fabric of the local coffee scene. The clientele is varied making for an atmosphere of a true friendly coffee shop where new friends are made, overseas visitors welcome and small children catered for. The coffee is from New Zealand and is inexpensive for the quality. “Strangers” does not have a large seating area indoors~ there is a covered patio ~ which to some might be a disadvantage, but to many of us locally it’s a little oasis for the local café society.
