Description: HR Coffee bar an Independent Coffee outlet and catering company based in Stratford upon Avon. We take our food and coffee very seriously and are fully committed to ensuring everything we serve is fresh, home made and offers value for money to our customers. All our foods are produced fresh, daily from our kitchen. We are committed to using only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients which are seasonal. We alter our menu to suit our seasonal produce but retain our classic dishes such as our fresh selection of Homity pies, quiches and salads. We have a large selection of fresh coffees and we use Limini as our house coffee - a blend of Brazilian, El Salvador and Indian beans giving a rich, full bodied, brew which is low in acidity. We have a fantastic selection of cakes, pastries and fresh snacks which are all homemade. In addition to our coffee bar we provide a wide range of corporate and private catering services across Warwickshire.

As vegetarians we often have to hunt around for eateries with suitable menus and we'd read HR Coffee Bar's reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to try their coffee and cake. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the food in the chillers looked so tasty that we decided to have lunch too. Nothing was marked as suitable for vegetarians, but we were assured that the ingredients used were vegetarian and happily tucked into our spinach and goats cheese quiche, homity pie and selection of amazing, healthy salads. The coffee and hot chocolate was wonderful and we really felt that the owners should announce their veggie credentials a bit more because there is a gap in the market in Stratford upon Avon. Their cakes were lovely too, overall the quality of the food and drink was outstanding. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we returned a few days later to savour HR's offerings before making our way home.

Hi rattyclaire, thank you ever so much for your wonderful comments.

Our belief is that everyone should be catered to fairly, from vegetarians, to coeliacs. Even people with a caffeine intolerance should be able to come and enjoy our wonderful goods without worry that quality will suffer. We have since started making a bit more noise about our veggie credentials, and have you to thank for doing so!

Hopefully, we will see you on your next visit to Stratford!

Thanks again.

Read the reviews and wanted to find it - was right around the corner from our Windsor Street parking. Lovely coffee and great light lunch. Everything was fresh, very tasty and reasonably priced - what more could you want?

Dropped in for coffee and snack lunch and were well impressed. Coffee well made and flavoursome without being bitter and good aftertaste. Spinach and goats cheese quiche really tasty and properly tasty! Not a large place but perfectly formed, friendly staff and will return. Thank you.

Thanks AlanS283 for your lovely review,

We love our spinach and goats cheese quiche so much that it is one of our mainstay pastry based options and we are sure glad that you enjoyed it too. Our coffee is another of our pride and joys too.

Thanks again,
The team at HR

Though I agree this is a pleasant coffee shop, it is just that, a coffee shop. I popped in for a hot drink and sat and read my book. The place lacked atmosphere. Though staff were extremely friendly and happy, I felt like I expected more from the it, being Stratfords number one. Maybe number one for coffee, but for food and other drinks maybe try somewhere else, as they can't offer you much. I don't dislike it but I won't hurry back.
