Having walked from Windermere to Ambleside over Wansfell in the rain this was a fantastic find. Super home cooked food and warm welcome. Thank you for looking after our map - we'll be back again

We went for tea and excellent home made soup the day we arrived in Ambleside. The place is small but extremely comfortable; run by a group of friendly young people. It is an ancient building by the side of Rattle Gill (brook). It doesn't open until 10am so we were not able to utilize it for breakfast. But for snacks, lunch, or a quick pick-me-up it is excellent.

We just popped in here for an excellent coffee and hot chocolate, but what a great place.

Tucked away down Bridge Street, it's cosy and feels as much a community hub as just a cafe. We heard locals discussing training for a triathlon, and an outdoor fitness class, and the host recommending a walk to someone.

The food looked original, healthy & fresh. And good value. Next time maybe....

A fantastic little cafe serving a varied and lovely vegetarian menu. Tucked away on a little Ambleside backstreet overlooking a stream Rattle Gill is a must visit - it's easy to find but part of me doesn't want you to!

This is a lovely little café just seconds walk from the centre but tucked away by the river in a quiet pedestrian lane.

The staff are friendly and funny and it's a great place to stop for a drink or something more substantial.

I'd definitely recommend it.
