Comfortable, clean and a great welcome. Genial owner provided great table service and complimentary olives while we waited for our food. I had a camenbert/cranberry sandwich on lovely local bread from a working steam mill.A great place for lunch.

On this occasion we were disappointed as there was no tables available to have lunch. Problem solved we sat at the window and had coffee and cake anyway. Cakes delicious and the coffee excellent as usual. The best coffee around without doublt. Thumbs up from me!

Great coffee and teas at this independent place. The service is excellent and food tasty. The only disappointing aspect is that you are unable to buy much that is gluten free

I live in Wells and love this cafe.Today I met friends there for coffee and, on recommendation, I ordered a custard tart to be made specially for us in advance. It was delicious! A simple classic to beat any fancy cake!

Hands-down the best little coffee shop in Wells, away from the busy high street. Ivan uses distinctive beans for his coffee, whilst offering a range of differently made coffee including pour over, served in a pretty glass teapot. This coffee particularly changes over time and is delicious throughout. Ivan also offers guest espressos, not that I think I'd ever tire... More

After seeing all the reviews on here I decided to go try out this place. Not being from around here I didn't realise it was in a side road and so went off into town looking for it. Eventually discovered this place's location and had one of the best coffees ever. We also decided to have an early lunch and... More
