Gorgeous flat white coffee and lemon drizzle cake. Perfect to finish of a morning walk around Grasmere lake. Sat next to the open fire enjoying the real taste of coffee and homemade cake. Highly recommended never disappoints.

Bought a takeaway today, a veggie wrap and veggie baguette, both had no veg in them just some awful hummus with a dollop of mayonnaise! Bought them for our journey home and it’s inedible and won’t be visiting again, money down the drain!

Lovely outside seating space overlooking the green. Good service and reasonable prices. Scone and cake we had were very good even at the end of the day.

This place is neither bad nor good. Its just average. The food, staff and decor all average. It could be great with a little more flair and enthusiasm from the waiting staff. The menu could do with rejuvenation, its unimaginative. From the outside it promises...More

This was a fantastic find. They offer a wide range of food including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. I had the rarebit with wholegrain mustard and homemade chilli, lime & ginger jam. It was out of this world! The service was really friendly and...More
