Why we love it

A launderette that you'd like to hang out in? Not likely. Yet that's exactly what At the Well's owners, the Grist sisters, have created. It's a unique cafe-come-launderette – so, even if you don't need to freshen up your threads, it’s still well worth a trip. Their pancake brunches are spectacular (mounds of pancakes dripping in maple syrup with bacon or blueberries and a big cafetiere) and the eggs/mushrooms on toast or boiled eggs & soldiers are excellent value. After a short time sat in here (amidst the tinkling of coffee cups and washing machine white-noise), you’ll really appreciate the creative interior of this hub of inclusivity and community.

Lovely quirky cafe with friendly servers and delicious brunch. Pancakes were top. Smoothies delis.h. Will definitely return


Perfect but I would have liked to be able to pay for extras to add to the sourdough bacon sandwich.


Great brunch and lovely friendly staff who accommodated my son’s food preferences. Thanks!


Just lovely and we definitely more places like that!!!


I went for the Transatlantic Pancakes, having read amazing things about them from their website, and I wasn't disappointed. Absolutely delicious! Good portion too, so was quite full by the end. Highly recommend :)


Stumbled across this wriggle by chance while I had some time to kill. Will most definitely be back Next time I’m in the area!
