Lovely breakfast

I'm vegetarian & normally shy away from cooked breakfasts. However on a very hungry day with my partner called here & saw vegetarian breakfast on the specials board. Ordered with the large none vegi version & really enjoyed it. So much so that we returned on the last day of our stay. Food is... read more

Dog friendly small cafe in Ambleside. Stopped off for a bite enroute to Sawrey. lots of choice on the menu to suit everyone from snacks, meals to cakes (which looked amazing). I had roll with sausage/egg which was excellent, my wife had a baked potato/cheese which she could not finish. The portions seemed to be huge no matter what was... More

Visited Daisy's Café during a brief visit to Ambleside. I must say we enjoyed the service and the food and drink. We were made to feel welcome and we would like to have been able to visit again but for our brief stay.

We were looking for a cafè when we visited Ambleside on a mini break to the Lakes. We only wanted a drink & snack, saw Daisy's, looked inviting so went in. After sitting down we were attended to promptly, we both ordered a Cappuccino,I chose the currant teacake & hubby ordered a scone, jam & clotted cream. We were served... More

Yes it was a busy morning in the school holidays but we waited 15 minutes before one of the very young girls who provide "table only service" came to take our order. We were then informed that they can't make poached eggs.... Strange, we thought that this was a cafè?

Took a good few minutes for the waitress to stop chatting to a friend. No scones left at 3rd! Nasty mass produced cakes. Really not great and the toilets were foul.

This place looks lovely from the outside and not too bad inside. However more thought needs to be put into the arrangement of tables - ours was very cramped (not helped by some other customers' huge pushchair shoved between their table and ours). Service was friendly but slow (not their fault, I don't think there were enough staff working). We... More
