Looking for something simple for lunch and found this cafe which met the criteria. Not a big choice but food we had was fine and good value. Staff were friendly and it was very quiet away from the road.

Love this cafe just off the high street family run friendly staff. Food is first class as is the price. Great value for money. To think they are still serving Wells after 40 years well done guys see you soon.

Lovely friendly small cafe, with happy staff. Food and drinks good, spotlessly clean cafe. Its quite easy to miss this cafe, hidden down a lane, but if you want value for money, table service, then its worth a visit.

Located just off from the high street, it is well worth exploring the side streets of Wells. We stopped in for milkshakes and a lovely homemade carrot cake. Loved the look up the stairs with the outer house and windows and was curious as to what was up there. office? Toilets? I should have asked ! Friendly and well worth... More

Came here with my wife & daughter who have been here before, tucked away from the High Street in Wells, though signs showing where it is. Nice but simple selection of hot & cold meals as well as drinks. Food arrived of good size and presented well. Good value for money which was nice, the only down side is that... More

Worst coffee in Wells, and I've tried most. No atmosphere. Ideal if you're over 70, and little money and fewer taste buds. If this doesn't fit your profile.... avoid

Stopped off here with my dog as the little outside area is dog friendly. Staff were very friendly and brought water for my dog. I had an omelette with chips and salad which was delish and the salad was really fresh. I'll certainly be eating here again.

Lovely little cafe in a small side street very clean and tidy didn't have any food only a coffee ( cappachino ) which was excellent but the food prices on the menu were very reasonable . Would reccomend to visitors to the city to venture off of the high street for a change and you will be pleasantly surprised.
