Went there for a quick cuppa with my daughter. Lovely place, very nice owner, good coffee, divine brownies :) There is also a good selection of sandwiches and lunch dishes - all food is locally sourced when possible. Highly recommended!

In spite of visiting Wells several times each year we didn't know about Strangers with Coffee until finding it on tripadvisor. With such good reviews we just had to try it and we weren't disappointed. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we...More

We read the reviews, so decided to stop for coffee. The latte and Americano were made perfectly. We had the homemade chicken pate (the red onion marmalade was delicious) and beet salad with goat cheese for lunch. Both were outstanding. Ivan and Susan own the...More
