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.

Exceptional coffee, one of the best I've had. We came near to closing time, and the owner was very lovely and let us stay at our lesiure. Great customer servie, had a variety of coffies, and all were exemplary.

Lovely little coffee shop in the city centre. Great coffee and pastries. Almond friand and pastel de nata were really special. Service was friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

Asked a local for the best coffee - they sent me to this great cafe. The coffee was good (went back again) and the cakes delicious. Believe me, it's hard to get good coffee in UK (generality, but valid) and this place is just excellent....Very friendly owner and inviting space. Highly recommend.More

A real hidden little gem of a coffee shop near St.Cuthbert church. Activity searched out after seeing a review on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. A really lovely warm welcome and a recommendation on a cake that did not disappoint. A must visit for...a coffee pit stop in wells!More

So glad I found this place whilst I was riding through Wells on my bike. The staff were extremely friendly and the food and drink excellent. I needed to refuel so had an americano, sausage roll and carrot cook. Everything was delicious. They were happy...for me to stow my bike, sit outside and top up my water bottles. I was even given an anti histamine tablet as I had been stung by a wasp or bee earlier on in the day. Family run I think and it was great to meet Lewis (adventurer and barista) and his Mum. I would recommend it.More

Saw the reviews on here for this place, so had to give it a try. I wish we hadn’t bothered. It’s a very small place, and the small number of seats are restrictive. But there was only two other people in, so got a couple...of seats. I ordered two lattes, extra hot as we always do. He brought the coffees to us with a lovely pattern on the top. They were nice and creamy. Only problem was was, they were lukewarm. It’s no good getting the milk extra hot and then putting it in cold cups. Good baristas do not do this. Also the mobile data in Wells is appalling, so I asked him if they had Wi-Fi? Nope. We drank the lukewarm coffee in a couple of minutes and left, never to go back.More

Came here twice in the same day trip to Wells as it’s so good. The coffee is awesome, as is the mocha. Some cake options too. You can sit in or outside in the cute garden space. Lovely vibe. This IS the best coffee you...are going to find anywhere in Wells or close by. Make it a stop on your trip to Wells.More

I love an independent coffee shop & this place was excellent. Fantastic coffees (flat whites), lovely crockery, friendly barista & nice selection of cakes, all home baked I believe on the premises. We had a friand & a Bakewell which were lovely. You won’t stumble...on this place as it’s off the main streets but you’ll find it just behind the Cathedral & near to the bus station car park. Good spot& glad we visited.More

Amazing Little independent coffee shop only a min or two from the town centre. Coffee was expertly made )this coming from a self confessed coffee snob) carrot cake was Devine, perfectly moist and the frosting on top was perfect. Both the Barista Lewis, who has...run the length of New Zealand 3000kms btw, and the server, (sorry didn’t get your name) were delightful to talk too. It gave us the perfect start to our day walking around the city. And it’s AllPress coffee so it’s that is a win too😁More
