We really enjoyed a fantastic cappuccino and delicious banana bread away from the hustle and bustle of Wells city centre, Anyone wanting to experience outstanding coffee, with a choice of home-made cakesin a friendly environment should definitely visit this coffee house. We will be back!

Lovely independent coffee shop. Latte was so nice I had two and husband’s hot chocolate was nicest he’s had in a while. Worth finding this coffee shop rather than settling for one of the larger chains further up the high street.

Popped in late morning for a snack and a drink. Really impressed with the menu. Avocado and egg on toast was delicious. Egg cooked to perfection. Free on street parking outside for an hour if you are lucky. Very friendly place. I hope to return...very soonMore

A great little hidden coffee shop near to St. Cuthbert Church. Lovely homemade food (cakes and light lunches) and knowledgeable on their coffees. Thoroughly recommended.

Stumbled across ‘Strangers With Coffee’ whilst on a business trip and couldn’t have been happier with the fact that I had. I ordered a latte which quickly followed with a second - it really was the best I’d tasted in quite some time. However, more...than this was the atmosphere and welcoming nature in which I was met by Tom and other ‘strangers’ within. Would highly recommend and will certainly visit next time I’m in the area. Great work, great atmosphere ..... great coffee!More

Dropped in for a quick cup of tea and some cake, both delicious and well served. The owner and customers were friendly and happy to chat. Highly recommended.
