Coffees were very good. Did not stay for lunch. Apricot and other oatmeal slices were very tasty. Friendly staff.

Visited several times this week. Great homemade dishes every day - soups, pizza, salads, moussaka, lasagne. Lots of interesting soft drinks. But a long queue as it very popular!!

Our favourite for coffee, cake and great lunches. Delicious vegetarian food, a varied menu which changes daily. Reasonably priced and lovely courtyard for sunnier days as well as indoor seating. Best lunch in Wells.

Stopped here for lunch and really enjoyed it. My wife and sister both had the veggie moussaka and I had the celeriac and leek soup with Home made roll and a slice of fennel and feta quiche. It was all super and the ambiance is...More
