Excellent Cafe

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

You can no longer 'amble' in Ambleside so enjoy a good meal in this friendly (also dog friendly) cafe. Only complaiint - a bit to much on the main course so had to forgo dessert.

We visited here with our children and the staff were very friendly and accomodating. The cafe is bright and airy (perhaps a bit too much of a sun trap in the early afternoon... we were sweltering!) and the food is pretty good: the cakes were excellent but the lasagne suffered from cheddar cheese syndrome (that stuff really is not meant...

Popped in for quick coffee after long walk in the fells. Nice warm welcome and good choice of cakes to treat yourself after and hard days waking.

Daisys has changed hands since we last visited. We knew it was up for sale so were pleased to find it still in situ and not converted into a trendy juice bar. Its waitress service now and there's less choice on the menu but we were only interested in the breakfast choices. We opted for the standard and large breakfast... More

A menu where you are spoilt for choice. Staff were very friendly and the food was delicious and very filling - perfect if you've been out walking.
