A lovely little cafe serving freshly cooked food at. A good price. We only had afternoon tea but the meals other were having looked really good. Perfect for an inexpensive meal. Dogs are accepted.

A truly local family business we had lunch here and nothing was too much trouble catering for food allergies and fussy eaters with a warm friendly smile, the food was delicious and service great.

The place is lovely and the service at the table is a surprise (especially for a cafe in the UK). The service is good and quick. Portions are filling and tasty (I had gammon with pineapple with salade and a huge side of chips. Delicious!). The only problem is that they do take credit cards...

Stayed close to Ambleside for our holiday and decided to visit the cafe for a cooked breakfast one morning. Staff welcoming. Cooked breakfast ok. I would say slightly over priced as I declined two of the options on the cooked breakfast list and was still charged full price. Breakfast was filling and wasn't greasy. Overall it was a nice breakfast.

We arrived on a very wet day when visited Ambleside and decided to visit Daisys Cafe for a late lunch. I had my 3 year old with 4 adults. We asked if we could take a seat from another table for my daughter. The response from the owner was to add another table as well which was very thoughtful of... More

We visited late in the day and despite the large party of 9 we were welcomed and seated quickly. The orders were taken quickly and arrived in minutes including lovely homemade soup and fresh sandwiches. Great coffee too. A great touch was the free bottles of chilled water. The waitress was friendly and efficient as were all staff, she kindly... More

Good quality and probably the... More

Popped in to have some breakfast and had a friendly greeting by the staff. Very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Good menu but I have to recommend the cooked breakfast. It was so tasty, no excess grease in sight and the hash browns were super crispy. So good we came back a few days later to have the... More

We popped in here for breakfast a few days ago, we were greeted from the door which was nice. The place was busy and smelt really good with bacon and sausage cooking away. We only had a few crumpets each but were impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. We’ll return when we’re next in town.
