Mr Miles Tearooms and Coffee Shop

Popular Taunton cafe with coffee beans roasted onsite

There aren’t many cafes where you can buy coffee roasted on site, but at Mr Miles Tearooms and Coffee Shop in Taunton you can do just that. It roasts its own coffee most days which ‘creates a wonderful coffee aroma,’ says manager Colin Barrell. ‘The freshness of the beans is paramount to get the best flavours.’

It’s the espresso that keeps the customers coming back to Mr Miles. It’s a special blend that’s been put together by the head roaster at the DJ Miles HQ in Porlock and customers can pick up a bag in the shop to take home, along with lots of other coffee paraphernalia. You can also enjoy a variety of cafetière coffees made with beans from around the world including Costa Rica, Colombian and Java – plus there’s always a guest coffee being freshly ground.

This fully licensed tearoom is open for breakfast and lunch with temptations on offer, from the favourite Mr Miles rarebit (made to a secret recipe) to a range of 25 cakes made daily by the cafe’s two bakers.
