We saw on TA that this was good and were not disappointed. Really friendly staff wanting to serve the best coffee. Tasty coffee and a slice of just-made blueberry cake. What a treat!

Arrived in Wells and looked on TripAdvisor for a decent coffee to start the day off. Found this little place. Absolutely outstanding coffee. But what makes the place stand out from all other cafés I have ever visited is the owners who are super friendly, informative and helpful. I can not recommend this place highly enough, it is a must... More

Treat yourself to the fantastic coffee, have baked beans on toast topped with chorizo and a poached egg.... Need I go on? I don't think so, just go there if... More

Strangers with Coffee is a fantastic cafe and coffeehouse, just a few minutes' walk from the centre of town. It was very easy to find and we were greeted with a smile when we arrived. All coffees (lattes) were excellent and clearly made with care and expertise. For breakfast we had the scrambled eggs and bacon and egg sandwich (with... More

Worth the short walk from the high street, this independent café serves up great coffee, delicious homemade cakes (often with a gluten free option) and good food with plenty of choice for vegetarians. The owners are very welcoming and attentive, and the place attracts a convivial crowd.

Comfortable, clean and a great welcome. Genial owner provided great table service and complimentary olives while we waited for our food. I had a camenbert/cranberry sandwich on lovely local bread from a working steam mill.A great place for lunch.

On this occasion we were disappointed as there was no tables available to have lunch. Problem solved we sat at the window and had coffee and cake anyway. Cakes delicious and the coffee excellent as usual. The best coffee around without doublt. Thumbs up from me!

Thank WhereU2
