Walking through wells and fancied a bite to eat with my dad. What we found was friendly staff exemplary staff that is good for me and the environment with lots of varied dietary requirements met. I was astounded how nice the food was for a modest shop front that meets wells high street.

Self-service restaurant serving the very best vegetarian food around. Clean, rustic, pleasant surroundings - freindly staff at a reasonable cost for the standard and quality of the food.

After leaving the Glastonbury Festival, we wanted somewhere to have lunch before heading back home, and had found this place online and fancied having a look. It was an excellent decision! Their lunchtime choice of vegetarian food was superb. I had an excellent mushroom bolognese and my wife had a puy lentil shepherd's pie topped with dauphinoise potatoes. There were... More

I popped in on a Friday lunchtime and had one of the dishes of the day £6.95 with a side salad for an extra £3.00, there was lots of it and it really activated my taste buds so I give this place full marks on every level.

We stopped in Wells on our way home from Cornwall to visit the Cathedral and used the Tripadvisor recommendations to have lunch at The Good Earth. We weren't disappointed. Excellent choices, great salads and the best coffee I had had for a week! The menu is on a board behind the counter, and as first time customers it took us... More

It seems the food here just keeps on getting better. I'm not a vegetarian, yet it is the only vegetarian restaurant/cafe that I enjoy going to. Delicious really fresh ingredients and superb use of spices and herbs make the food special. Just delicious.

I have eaten here a number of times since I first reviewed this restaurant. The meals have been excellent until I was served two luke warm dishes in two consecutive visits. The layout has also started to get on my nerves as the restaurant gets busier: the staff serving cannot hear you when it is busy, you have to yell.... More

If you want a freshly prepared, home made tasty vegetarian lunch then this is the place to go. The portions are generous, all very fresh and very tasty home made quiche. Choose at the counter and carry to one of many tables on ground floor level. Good value.
