Lovely coffee. Delicious food. Spoilt for choice, so we shared. Both dishes generous portions and reasonably priced. Helpful staff. A little gem of a cafe.

Lovely friendly staff and cake to die for. Sat on the wall outside due to pandemic but the cake took our minds off the cold. Would highly recommend

We stopped in before exploring the town and so glad we did! The staff were friendly and helpful, the food delicious (can recommend the turtle rolls!) and was popular without being crowded. My son was impressed by the Festival decor!

Stopped with our pup for a coffee and cake, the coffee was phenomenal and they were so friendly. They greeted our puppy and made us feel really welcome. The cream tea was yummy! Lovely dog friendly cafe

Stopped here half way through a bike ride around the Somerset Levels and Mendips. The coffee and cake I had was perfect and there was a huge selection to choose from. Great place to sit outside and watch the world go by. I will definitely...recommend this place and will stop here again to refuel, they were also happy to fill up my water bottle before I left.More

This cafe is almost directly opposite the gates for the Abbey. We entered quite late in the afternoon (3pm) when they were no longer serving hot food, but was made very welcome. The cafe is bright and cheery with plenty of seating out back. The...toilets for information are currently out of order, but there does seem to be public toilets in the town anyway (opposite I believe). We had a much needed hot chocolate and decaf tea, alongside a muffin and a cake (whose name escapes me) that had almonds on and was a cross between lemon curd and custard. It was delicious! They had a range of cakes suitable for GF and other food requirements. We were just sad we never got to sample any waffles!More

We arrived with our baby in a pram and the staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We felt completely at ease, the cafe was spotless and deceptively spacious inside. The food was lovely - the turtle rolls were great with a good...selection of toppings. Thanks to the staff for looking after us so well :)More

Really lovely little cafe in the centre of Glastonbury. Lots of options for everyone, including good choices for vegetarian options. Picnic packs particularly good value and staff very welcoming and friendly

Stopped for brew and a bacon bap. Decent tea and a bap stuffed with bacon. Just opposite the Abbey, can highly recommend.
