This coffee shop is by far the best in the area, with great tasting coffee, a wide variety of food, freshly prepared by friendly, efficient staff. What more could you ask for?

It is always a bad sign when the only way to tell the difference between the flat white coffee, latte and cappuccino is 1) the shape of the mug used and 2) whether it comes with chocolate sprinkled on top. So 1980s! Their adverts... More

Had an hour in Barrow-in-Furness today needed refreshments so popped in for coffee, soup and cake. Nice coffee, nice soup and a lovely current slice to finish. Staff were friendly and the place was clean. Good value for money.

Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff with coffe from local company Farrars of Kendal. Light lunches with traditional pie and peas with gravy which was substantial and excellent filling but the pastry suffered from being microwaved to heat it up so was too soggy for my taste.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Our Pies are usually oven baked but on this occassion due to us being busy you must have received one that was microwaved. I can only apologise and hope you will call back again to enjoy what we have to offer More
