The owners of the Carnforth Book Shop recommended we eat here and we were not disappointed, There is a good selection light lunches and snacks etc all well presented and value for money.

We visited here for some lunch after finding this place on here. Great little find with several traditional Austrian options. I can recommend the schnitzel. Very friendly staff and great prices

This is a cafe quite out of the ordinary with several Austrian dishes on the menu. I had goulash soup which was excellent. It makes a lovely change to be offered something out of the ordinary that is very reasonably priced

You must visit the compact and bijou but perfectly formed 'Edelweiss' cafe in Carnforth! Home cooked food, freshly prepared when you order - the Goulash Soup is a hearty meal in itself. Service is friendly and quick, pity they didn't have more tables, busy lunch...More

This is the place to eat in Carnforth, pop in, you will not regret it, food if home cooked, Be warned seats are limited and you may need to book in advance even for breakfast, but well worth it.

I ordered a small breakfast which arrived with toast, it was absolutely delicious. The service was extremely good and the cafe was very warm and comfortable. Papers are even available to read.

Do you open for evening meals? You sound great from the reviews and we're looking for a meal for four of us at ~ 6 pm, before an evening concert at the Station on Wed 27th July.
