We saw from reviews that this was the best breakfast in Ambleside and we were not disappointed. You can choose from 10 different items for your full English and we had a cafetierre of coffee to go with it. The food was lovely with nice toast and the service was very quick. There were magazines to read while you waited... More

Other food we had included toasties and the special of toast with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. There was lots of choice on the menu -... More

We visit the lake district every year and always visit Daisys as you get a friendly service and lovely tasty food at low prices. Would recommend to anyone who visits Ambleside to call in.

Daisy's is a fantastic spot for a breakfast of any size or combination or a coffee and cake. Take a seat and prepare for you taste buds to spring back into life... Outside the kerb appeal isn't a wow but rest assured it hits all the high notes on your palate and the vibe inside is a cool outdoorsy type,... More

The decoration was interesting. The staff were friendly and polite. The food was tasty. The service was quick, but the toilet sink was too small. I could barely wash my hands in it. Overall it was a good lunch.

Just popped in randomly for lunchtime snack. Hot piping lovely toasties and great service. Reading the previous reviews I wish Clive and his wife a happy retirement. Thank you.

Chosen because so many places in Ambleside are closed on Mondays, we weren't disappointed in lunch here. The tomato and fennel soup was very tasty as was the roll and sausage. The service is chaotic, however. Every order that comes out of the kitchen wanders around the ten or so tables looking for a home. Tip: don't order hot drinks... More
