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.

We visited Ambleside on something of a whim and decided to stay in this lovely town to have lunch. Daisy's was the first café we saw and we decided to give them a try. I'm so glad we did and would eat there again. The menu has a lot of choice, the breakfasts, sandwiches and jacket potato fillings being of... More

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

Called in this week with my wife for breakfast. They happily accepted our Border Terrier to join us too. What a breakfast!! You can choose any number of items from the menu, and tailor your breakfast. The portions are large, and consist of well good good local produce. I would highly recommend you try here.

The 5 item breakfast is great value and everything cooked to perfection. A great place to start your day in Ambleside. Apparently soon to change hands so let's hope the new owners keep up the high standard.
