We always call at Greens when we are in the area. Today we arrived just as the scones were coming out of the oven I had the Cheese sconce with chunks of local cheddar and the damson gumbo simply divine. My other half had the fruit scone with gooseberry jam and clotted cream and we shared a pot of tea... More

Greens is a dog friendly establishment which has a lovely varied menu. The food is attractively presented with generous portions.

The staff are friendly and helpful and... More

So I've visited greens cafe multiple times and on all occasions but one they have been closed. When I did actually make or across the threshold me and my partner had an average lunch and weren't impressed with the prices we were expected to pay. But other than having an unfriendly old man serve us everything else was fine. Though... More

The food was gorgeous and plenty of it. Well worth a visit. We went on the recommendation of other trip advisor guests and we certainly weren't disappointed. Try it out

I know you go to Grasmere for more than coffee but after walking up to Easedale Tarn we were looking for coffee and something sweet and delicious. With so many cafés and tea rooms in Grasmere I am really pleased that the first one we spotted that took our eye was Greens and we weren't disappointed. Homemade soup, carrot cake... More

From the outside this isn't the most picturesque place to eat in Grasmere but the service, value for money and food are excellent. The staff were very accommodating to our two toddlers and looked after us really well.

We visited on a wet afternoon in the Lakes. Lots of people had the same idea so it was pretty busy but I was still impressed with the friendly service. The scones were massive and very tasty. We will definitely be back.

We visited on a Saturday evening for a family celebration and it was perfect. All four generations thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The veggie sharing platter made a great starter with something for everyone and we all found a bit of space to sample the pudding platter. Thanks to Karen, Rob and their team for a very special evening.
