A nice rest when walking

Toasted teacakes were lovely and spicy . Good clean place kept nice but in the afternoon run out of stuff so have a limited menu. We wanted cream scones but no cream and another table had to choose again. It's a sham probably wouldn't go again because of this reason

Really impressed with this little gem. We ordered the chicken, bacon and mayonnaise toastie which was really tasty. Proper chicken, proper bacon and a nice side salad. My partner ordered the cheese and beans jacket potato which she said was simple but really tasty. This cafe appears to have mastered good simple, well priced food with polite service. Good quality...

We visited Daisy's Cafe last Saturday morning while visiting Ambleside on a Mothers Day trip, I had carrot cake which was a big piece and it was absolutely delicious. To be recommended. Mum had a fruit scone which she said was delicious too. If in Ambleside again we will definitely return.

Due to our later than expected arrival into Ambleside, we looked for a cafe with a reasonable menu at a reasonable price.

Didn't realise till last week that there were new owners, much improved menu and so much better to have table service. Had a lovely lunch. Really appreciate we can take the dog in too.
