I don't like being too critical but even though I enjoyed the coffee, neither me or my husband were particularly impressed with our cake choices. Both lemon and drizzle and coffee and walnut cake were dry and tasted like they'd been there for a couple...More

Cosy, friendly coffee shop in the centre of Cartmel. Serving home made cakes and scones, baked daily on the premises. We have a limited menu of freshly made sandwiches, a homemade soup of the day, hot 'brunch' menu. Eg smoked salon and scrambled eggs, etc. We sell take away cakes, sandwiches and our house blend teas and coffees. We have a selection of paintings by local artists and gifts made by local cottage industries.
