Wells: The Little Cafe

A brief visit down West had us calling into the beautiful but tiny city of Wells in Somerset. After a wander around the Cathedral and the walls of the Bishops Palace, we headed down the highstreet to find somewhere for a bite to eat and drink. 

Seeing quite a few places that caught our eye, we plumped for this friendly looking place along Union Street called The Little Cafe. Painted in a gorgeous dark mauve and looking clean and fresh, we wandered in to take a peek at the menu.

Upon entering we were welcomed by the young lass at the counter. The menu choice was good, with sandwiches, paninis and plenty of homemade cake options. Order placed and seeing as it was a lovely day, we headed back outside and took up residence at one of the wooden chairs and tables.

Drinks arrived promptly, a Luscombe ginger beer for moi and an earl gray tea for him. My Ginger Beer was very fiery but refreshing, whilst the tea was a good too. 

We sat and people watched whilst waiting for our nibbles to arrive. It's a great spot to come to if you don't want to be on the busy high street with cars rushing past.

The overall atmosphere was friendly but quiet, with the tables cleared quickly. It's obviously a favorite with locals stopping in for a mid monring coffee and natter and the fact the everything is made to order and the baked goods are homemade makes it a cut above the average high street chain.

Goodies having arrived, my Spelt courgette and walnut cake was AMAZING! Moist, tasty and a great combination of flavour - almost as good as the courgette, lemon and lime cake we had at Macknade Cafe. It didn't last long!

His cheese and ham panini was also very good, served with a green salad and mountain of homemade coleslaw. I did get food envy and wished I'd gone for both a panini and cake but oh well!

The Verdict?
A great little spot for a pit stop when in Wells. Friendly staff, great tasting food and good value.
