We've eaten here several times, we've ever had a bad meal, the staff are OK when ordering, not the friendliness, the young man who brings your food is excellent and friendly.
Personally I beleive if people are eating someone should serve you but you have to order at the counter, which is a pain as you feel rushed and everytime we want a refill of OJ we have to go que and pay. But of a pain.
Saying that, excellent breakfast and great location for people watching.

Came in after lunch hour when they were quiet. Staff continued to restock rather than serve me. Did this until a family walked in amd wanted ice cream. Served straight away. Then an elderly couple came in and ordered straight away. Spoke up and got ignored. Finally another coiple came in and were served instantly so I walked out. Never met such rude cafe staff before.

Popped in on a recent visit to Wells for breakfast. We had originally gone in for a sandwich, but for a little more could have a small cooked breakfast, so we plumped for that. The breakfast itself was lovely, and just the right amount for us. It had been cooked to order, and was piping hot. We got a dippy egg to boot, which is always great when it's cooked just right.
The staff were really lovely, and we were served very quickly. The cafe itself was fine decor wise, the only little gripe were the number of flies which must have come in from the rain. They all seemed to be dive bombing us, so perhaps a fly zapper may be in order. Other than that, everything was fine, and we really enjoyed our breakfast

We stopped here enroute home from Bath, for morning coffee.
Lovely cafe was found, with lovely Latte coffee served by the staff. We had a piece of victoria sponge cake, that was a little dry, but edible.
The staff were really friendly
