“Excellent lunchbreak in a feel-good coffee shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

As locals we popped into this coffee shop for a lunch break. It is very cosy and there was only us and one other person in there. The barista was very friendly and attentive. I was surprised that he asked me what kind of coffee I liked and suggested the 'house bean' for my taste which I loved. I also had the millionaire shortbread which was as good as I've tasted anywhere. Prices were not expensive which is a nice surprise based on the quality of product. I also had a taster of the hot chocolate which is based on the barista's own chocolate recipe which I also enjoyed. We certainly plan to visit more often.

Thank you David C for your fantastic review.

We certainly are very proud of our house coffee and also strive to ensure the best possible fit for each person as we understand that all tastes are different. Scott, our barista works very hard to ensure that every cup is made to the same high standard that he has set.

Thanks, again, for your great review. Always great to meet new locals.

“Closed on Sundays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Unable to comment on the quality of the establishment, but thought it would be useful to know it appears to be closed on Sundays - we walked across town to find out this weekend.

Dear Dave, so sorry to read your review but thanks for not dropping the standards for us. We decided to close 2 weeks ago but I have been really lazy and not changed my Trip Advisor page. I will do it today and if you are ever in SOA again please do come in and have coffee and cake on me.

“Best coffee and snacks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

Tripadvisor was correct, best coffee in town. Just don't ask for instant coffee as it's a £50 fine for uttering such an obscenity!

Hi bluenose7,

Thanks for the compliment on the coffee, our barista has worked very hard to maintain a very high quality on it. His sense of humor when it comes to coffee does go over some heads, but he wants to pass on thanks for seeing the funny side of it!

Pop in again next time you are in town, I'm sure our coffee guy will have more of his special brand of humor for you!

Regards,

“Brilliant for lunch and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Decided to go for lunch with a work colleague and she'd recommended HR as a great spot for lunch! Their club sandwich is amazing both in size and taste! I'm not a coffee fan but the guy who served us brought us some new coffee that they had in and now i'm a convert! Really lovely atmosphere, great service and lovely to see a fantastic independent coffee shop in Stratford upon Avon! Would definitely recommend!
