Lovely little family run cafe

This is the first time that we have visited Daisy's as we usually stay at the Apple Pie, we would usually have breakfast there. We decided to try somewhere else and we ended up having breakfast here twice!! There are a lot of 'family run' places in the Lakes however Daisy's is genuinely family... read more

Think my title says it all really. Great choice of snacks, meals and cakes etc, reasonably priced in a very nice clean cafe. Staff were lovely too.

Popped in to Daisey's again whilst on our Annual Lake District holiday. First day we had lunch which was lovely. Second time was for a Breakfast. Staff were very friendly and remembered us after having been in a couple of days before. Changed hands since last year but still doing a great job.

Popped in for breakfast. Looked busy, but very welcoming. Service very quick and friendly. Menu wasn't massive but offered all the right choices, cooked and presented in a very nice way. Tea is the best we tasted all weekend, and good sized pots. Happily return when the occasion arises.

A wet afternoon in Ambleside and a walk up a long and winding road, but the rest and wonderful cream tea made it worth while.

This was our first visit and we will be back. Lovely sun trap and attentive staff. Bit of a wait for the food as the cafe was busy. Well worth the wait. Food was fresh, hot and excellent. Best burger I have had for ages. Simple and filling. Delay caused by lots of folk ordering the breakfast which looked amazing.... More

Daisy's cafe never disappoints. I've been here a few times on visits to Ambleside. It's friendly service coupled with kitchen favourites such as full English breakfasts and toasties. It's inexpensive and consistently good! I will be coming back again.

We stopped by for breakfast and it was one of the best breakfasts we've ever eaten. Everything was served freshly cooked with great bread, toasted, hot and buttered on the side. Coffee was delicious and service with a smile. Very good value too. We'll be back next time we are in the Lake District.

What a gem in Ambleside. Visited today for a lunchtime time snack and we were not disappointed! The bacon and egg bap was to die for. Great taste and excellent bread followed by a lovely cappuccino. The staff were very helpful and friendly service which was very welcoming. A great plus for us is that they are dog friendly so... More
