Visited with my parents prior to a tour of Poole's cavern, which departs from the same building. Enjoyed a nice coffee and cookies in a nice warm environment with lots of natural light. Love to see the cafe was so dog friendly.

Really needed this after a walk around Buxton and the country park. The cream of celeriac soup was absolutely delicious. Would go back just for that! Great price too! Clean cafe with a great view of the birds on their feeders
