Two of us called in for a cuppa and food and we were not disappointed. It was 12.30 but the staff were happy to serve us bacon sandwiches - from the breakfast menu which "officially" finishes at 11.30.

We had the best sandwich and tea we have had in a long time and we will definitely return. The premises were spotlessly clean and staff were friendly and helpful,

I had the Hot chocolate which is one of the best I've ever had. Other members of the family had cappucino's & said they where just as good. They really warmed us... More

A great find - staff were v friendly and fitted us in .I was served within minutes of going to order .Hot chocolate range was fab and the tea was loose tea in a lovely glass pot. The lemon cake was to die for. Definitely coming back on our next visit.

Our weekend in Ambleside would not be complete without a Chai Latte and a great big slice of cake at Cafe Treff. The staff always seem to remember us from our last visit and we are always greeted with a smile. Look forward to calling in again soon.
