We only popped in here for a coffee and a cake but it was lunchtime and the place was busy with others eating, food looked good. Our coffee and tea were fine and the cakes were too. Would visit again if we’re in the area.

I visited Crofters for morning coffee and a cake. I paid cash. The coffee was ok and the cake was reasonable so I took my wife there for lunch only to find that they do not take payment by debit/credit card and that they "regret any inconvenience this may cause". We went across the road to another restaurant that did... More

Been here a few times and always say that I will never go back, easy to find up at the market square. Now they do have a sign to say that service can be slow but the really need to look at this when they is already a Q waiting, took ages for the coffees to be done. Nice selection... More

My girlfriend and I visited this cute looking cafe today when we visited the lovely city. First of all they DO NOT take card. Cash only. Which was annoying because they don't have any signs telling you this. After getting back from the cash point to get my cash, I noticed my coffee was already on my table getting cold.... More

Always reliable for a great selection of cakes including several gluten free options which is a real treat. They do soya coffee laté too. Good jacket potatoes and snack meals too.

Just wanted a snack before going back to the bus, but as my friend needed something savoury - even just a sandwich we were told they were only serving sweet things, so we left. Don't bother - find somewhere else.

Called in for morning coffee and tea cake whilst on holiday before exploring Wells. Very quiet when we called. Ordered coffee and tried to make conversation saying what a lovely cafe it looked and no real response. Ordered tea cakes with butter. Waited longer than expected and when they arrived minimal butter on top (halved buttered). No smile from waitress... More
