Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 4 December 2023 via mobile

Popped in on our way back to the car after a shopping trip. It is our family’s favourite place for a drink (and or snack) when in Hereford. Well not anymore. The member of staff on the till is clearly in the wrong job, she...couldn’t have been more disinterested if she tried. We collected our drinks and food and headed to the car. Neither sandwich was edible, they both contained some form of warm slop. The americano tasted like burnt filter coffee, so didn’t get drunk. My daughter had a seasonal latte which she said was lovely. On my journey back to Brecon I started to think about the £24+ I had spent and what a waste of money it was for 2 coffees, a panini and a toasted sandwich and a cinnamon bun. I then realised we never received the cinnamon bun. I thought about phoning and complaining when I got home, but what’s the point - businesses aren’t interested in customer service anymore, if they were, the food would have been edible and the staff pleasant. I live more than a hour from Hereford so I’m getting my hard earned money back, because I don’t think the Coffee Cart really cares.More

Was given the wrong drink and told quite aggressively that I had ordered the drink I was given. They then proceeded to tell me it’s a better drink anyway and I should drink it. Was probably just a mishearing, but was not given my correct...drink. What happened to the customers always right? Overpriced and cold anyway.More

Stopped as usual for coffee but was disappointed by the state of the seating area , used cups and rubbish on almost every free seating area and there were several, also floor had spilt coffee on it - waited to see if there was someone...looking after the area but seemingly no staff on this task , not the first time and last time we cleared our own table and seating area - Guys you have a great location and business here but you need to ensure its clean and welcoming always .We chose not to stay this time sadly .More

Sat with family including a 9 week old baby , 5 month old and a toddler having a cuppa with family. Say in the indoor bit at old market Hereford , ask for heaters to come on and got told no they are not connected....It is freezing !!! If we hasn’t just spent £36 on drinks and cakes we would have gone elsewhere ! Family drinks are going to be at costa in the warm from now on ! Don’t recommend with babies guys especially not in the cold weather 🥶 why have heaters and not use them ?More

It’s a lovely looking cafe in a great spot which is why we often pay it a visit when we are in Hereford (we live in Leeds). This visit we ordered some paninis, toasted tea cake, tea, smoothies and a flat white, which came to...just short of £30, so quite expensive. Overall it was good, apart from the coffee which they never seem to get right. Maybe it’s living in Leeds as there are plenty of excellent coffee shops, but they make it in a mug and essentially pour the milk in?? It’s a lovely looking cafe but for the price the quality and service should be better 🤷🏼‍♀️More

The coffee itself isn't too bad but the staff are a massive let down. They don't listen to your order as they're too busy looking at the door to see who's walking past, when you correct them they roll their eyes as if you've changed...your mind. They are unhelpful and clearly have never heard of the words "Customer Service"More

I give 3* as the first time we went it was OK. We had a coffee each & MrDW had some cake or other, all good. Nowhere else appeared to be open, so it was nice to just sit there on the corner & catch...a bit of breeze in the unbearable heat. 2nd time we had coffee’s & MrDW had his usual cake thing, I had the carrot cake. The coffee seemed a lot stronger this time, I tipped half of mine away as it was quite sickly. The carrot cake was stale & didn’t taste the best. This cost us around £12.00. Now about the staff that need hiring, what about a cleaner? I overlooked it on the 1st visit, but there was still coffee stains all over the tables & outside path on our 2nd visit. This place could do with a jolly good hosing down.More

During that last hectic week before Christmas my wife and I stopped for coffee at The Coffee Cart, as we often do. We were delighted and impressed by the weather proof roof and dividing screens. We felt safe and warm , and relaxed as we...sipped our delicious coffee and watched the shoppers hurrying by. The staff are friendly and cheerful despite working outside in all conditions.More

We visited hightown for coffee and were delighted to be able to enjoy coffee outside, yet feel cosy and safe under the current circumstances. The canopy offers sufficient shelter and works well with the feel of the whole coffee stand. The staff as always were...friendly and helpful, appeared to be adhering to safety measures and the whole experience was positive, particularly given that we have not been going out and about due to health concerns.More
