Quality control is lacking here of late. Coffee is watery and palid, tastes more like coffee flavoured milk. Hard to know if its a lack of staff training or the staff don't care about the output. Either way, I'd avoid.

We regularly pop in here for a coffee, cake at the weekend. Great selection of food/ snacks, but recently we have noticed all cakes contain nuts, and they have moved the cakes around the corner and then put a table in front of it.... I wouldn't want to be sat there as everyone looks over you to see cake selection,... More

A quirky place with a mixture of odd tables and chairs. Very spacious and looked very popular, Sunday morning and really buzzing. I was passing through with a coach party and only wanted a coffee. The beaker of latte was delicious we both really enjoyed it. Plenty of cakes, snacks and savouries too choose from too. A good loo suitable... More

Like Coffee#1 out of all the chains, but can get busy on Saturdays which can lead to longer queues, but worth it as the coffee is better than Costas.

We called in on Boxing Day. Maybe not a good time to judge as there was little else open, and the few staff that were here were being kept very busy. This place had been recommended to us as being gluten-free friendly, but when I asked the young lady behind the counter what was available, she pointed out a chocolate... More

Well actually no, we had 2 coffees, an Earl Gray and a hot chocolate. Busy place, always popular and feels different to the usual chains.

Really nice atmosphere and staff. I had a soy milk hot chocolate and it was very good. They also had a really wide and varied selection of unusual teas.

Headed here to work for a bit whilst in the area. I'm sad to say it was busy. Its looking really tired and rundown, with the paint on the cheap wooden panels starting to flake. Some nice touches that are different to other coffee chains - but no WIFI - why on earth in this day and age would a... More

We stumbled on this cafe by luck as we had been for a walk and fancied one of the pumpkin spice chocolates. I had a spiced chai which was amazing. We returned the next day because I had to have another chai! My husband tried the choc o nuts which was also amazing. We also had some cakes which were... More

We first found Coffee#1 six years ago and the memory of the setting and friendly staff and good coffee remained so when we returned to Wells we were determined to find it again. Another good experience. We'll be back again

Thank Peter G
