You could not ask for a better place to seat down and rest your feet after a hard day shopping. Place is clean and tidy, staff are very friendly and food is absolutely delicious. Plenty of seating upstairs if downstairs is full, food is brought...to you in good time, no matter how busy they are and the cheese and onion quiche (homemade) is to die for.More

I came across this lovely cafe when visiting the town of workington. The service was good, the food was tasty and their homemade lemon meringue pie is to die for! They have upstairs seating if downstairs gets full up! The staff are friendly and welcoming.

Our family stayed in Workington for five days and had breakfast here twice as it was so delicious! The scones were the best I'd ever had, and the service was prompt and friendly. It was obvious the staff had a great rapport with their regulars,...and the owner Strad showed a genuine interest in his customers. The cafe was clean and comfortable and to top it off the price was very reasonable. Highly recommended!More

Lovely friendly cafe. Sanitiser on the door & the staff in visors make it feel a bit more safer. The food is very good. We have visited a couple of times now. They do a cracking bacon teacake & Cumberland sausage baguette. The chilli is...1 of my favourites & also lovely homemade quichesMore

A great cosy cafe in Workington. The cafe is fully following the Covid19 guidance with hand sanitizer on the entrance and all tables wiped with disinfectant before the next customers. The menu has a selection of tea, coffee and soft drinks. Breakfast, sandwiches, jacket potatoes,...tea cakes, salad, traditional English meals, filled pitta breads, snacks and homemade cakes are available. The order was taken promptly and delivered to our table in good time. We chose the cheese and onion filled pitta with a fresh salad, Victoria Sponge and lemon meringue pie, with tea, coffee and soft drinks. All were tasty, fresh and delicious! Thank you to Strad and his polite and conscientious team.More
