This is a quintessentially English coffee shop. At the back of a gift shop there is charming sunny courtyard in which to relax and enjoy the really good coffee. At the counter inside there is a wonderful array of cakes to tempt you as well as light lunches on offer. A lovely atmosphere, pleasant staff and I can assure you... More

10 of us booked a lunch here last Thurs. and we all had a different meal. Each one of us thoroughly enjoyed the food ,tasty and beautifully presented. I would have missed the cafe as I was so engrossed with the exciting little novelty shop in front of the cafe ,I will certainly be visiting again.

Although it's a little bit pricier than nearby competitors this is a hidden little gem in the historic town of Somerton. They have a fantastic menu with daily specials, wonderful cakes, which you can also order in advance to take away, and I believe they do Christmas pudding orders as well. It is a very popular choice and can therefore... More

Stumbled across this cafe in Somerton last week whilst out with my children. Fantastic selection of home cooked food and cakes including some gluten free for me. Lovely staff and reasonable prices. Hope to go back again soon.

Very surprised by Charlotte T's remarks about the staff. Lovely lunch as usual. I go here as I am gluten free and the cooks are always happy to amend the menu for me, a salad garnish with soup for example instead of bread (I react to gf bread) or frittata (sweet potato and goat's cheese) with salad and homemade coleslaw....

When we want to spoil ourselves, we usually drive to Living Pretty in Curry Rivel for lunch. However, this time I wanted to stay in Somerton, so we tried the Courtyard Cafe and I'm glad we did! Great food, good service and you can browse the gift shop on your way in, or out.
