Grabbed lunch here whilst passing through Keswick. Had one of the best burgers - apple and pork - I've ever tasted. Décor not the best but service was warm and friendly.

The service was poor. The rea and coffee was ok but we ordered 5 hot chocolates for the children and they were undrinkable! We politely informed the "manager" who couldn't offer us any solution! ... We were all upset and disappointed. Tables dirty and uncleared and a distinct lack of staff.

With 3 vegetarians a vegan and 2 meat eaters Pumpkin coped very well with our slightly off menu requests. We all enjoyed our food.

We had takeaway baguettes a couple of days ago that we we very good. Even though the shop was pretty empty we had to wait 10 minutes to get them. Went again today and decided to eat in due to the rain. Again the baguettes were lovely but the wait was too long.

This used to be one of our favourite cafes in Keswick but I assume it's been taken over. Service was friendly but incompetent. The burger was one of the worst things I've tasted in a long time. This used to be a really cool and different cafe. Now it's not even average, but the prices are high. Avoid until they... More

Not really good if your disabled as almost all seats are up stairs. Food is fine and reasonably priced, ok but just another sandwich bar really, worth dropping in.

Stopped in for lunch. Nice place but got order wrong. When we came to pay they had no idea what we had eaten or drunk! Feta cheese and pepper panini very good. No diet drinks disappointing

Just a few points for improvement: 1. Salad cream is not an acceptable replacement for hollandaise sauce. 2. Chai TEA latte does not contain coffee. 3. Meals should not only arrive together but individual meals should arrive complete rather than half the meal 10 minutes before the other half. 4. Avoid using honey as a cleaning product. 5. Prices need... More

Used to be our favourite cafe in Keswick. On two recent visits, the place was so pervaded with the strong smell of burnt chip fat, eating anything was a struggle. Today, we placed our order on entering (as usual) and waited at our table in the fat fumes for 15 minutes. On returning to the counter to ask about the... More

Came in here for a sandwich and a drink. Looked promising as sandwiches were made from the front area. Surprised the drinks were just - get it from there - a selection of bottles - no glasses. Sat upstairs where the tables were set on the run to the toilet. Sandwiches were more like doorstops, but the salad was tasty... More
