“Friendly coffee shop”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We found Strangers with Coffee by chance on the way to Glastonbury. We stopped for a late lunch and it was very tasty. Ivan was very friendly + explained the menu to us. Service was quick + Susan's food was tasty. The black coffee over ice was a great pick me up. The cafe has interesting postcards/fliers + coffee sacks + knick knacks but isn't too cluttered.
We popped in for coffee + cake the next morning + Ivan remembered us asking us about our trip to neighbouring Glastonbury. The lime + coconut cake was fresh out of the oven :o) It's not the cheapest place in the world but for fresh, tasty coffee + food it is worth it + better value than the big chains who won't take the time to get to know or remember their customers.

“Great Coffee, Friendly Proprietor”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

Stopped here while it was raining and sat down to have a coffee. The owner and his wife were so friendly and helpful. They gave us lots of tips on where to go, both in Wells and London(our next stop). Coffee was some of the best we've had in the UK. Also had a lovely homemade hummingbird cake, delicious! Definitely stop here and have a chat with the owners, they are really great!

“Perfect gem of a coffee shop”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

Came across this place by accident as we were looking for somewhere to escape the rain and get a bite to eat. The owners were so welcoming, the choice of food was excellent with a varied range of wraps etc and despite the place being small we never felt rushed or hemmed in. After speaking to the owner we found that the café was dog friendly with a covered rear raised decked courtyard and that we were welcome to bring our dog at anytime. We took them up on their offer a few days later and returned with dog in tow for coffee and cake. The rear courtyard was cosy and secluded and Rupert (the dog) was delighted to be presented with his own fresh water bowl and dog biscuits. I can not recommend this place enough - my only complaint that it is in Wells and we live in the West Midlands - we need them to relocate!

“Beautiful coffee and cakes.”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

My family and I popped in this morning and it was already getting busy. There was a welcoming atmosphere and we were greeted as soon as we entered. Inside is small, but beautifully decorated and there is also an outside seating area. The best part was the coffee. We all had different drinks, which we all presented beautifully. I can also highly recommend the homemade cakes, which were amazing! This is definitely the best coffee shop in Wells.
