Very enjoyable lunch

Didn't realise till last week that there were new owners, much improved menu and so much better to have table service. Had a lovely lunch. Really appreciate we can take the dog in too.

Don't let the cafe front fool you!! Because the food is far better than most restraunts and the service and friendly staff make dinning here a pleasure. You can grab a coffee or tea with a piece of cake or have a delicious fresh home made meal. THIS TINY PLACE PACKS A WHOLE LOAD OF FOOD PUNCH I WOULDN'T TRY... More

Called in here for tea and a scone. Lovely vibe about the place - nice cakes and drinks, lovely music being played - but the service made it - efficient and friendly.

Called for coffee and cake and a lovely place this is too. Very friendly staff with a lovely welcome. We had two different cakes and they were both nice in taste and presentation. Very busy place with the locals too, so it must have a good reputation. Well done.

Went today expecting just average food ( especially as I ordered fish finger sandwiches) but it was really nice with an excellent salad. The staff were all smiling which makes the place more attractive.

Called in for a coffee and a hot chocolate while visiting Ambleside on a cold Saturday morning. A cosy, welcoming atmosphere and friendly service. Nothing much more to say really - does exactly what you'd expect from a tearoom but does it well. Worth a visit.

Went here for lunch when we arrived in Ambleside after our car journey. Good no fuss food and a quick turn around. Good choice of things for lunch. We both had jacket potatoes and liked the plentiful toppings.
