Had a lovely birthday meal. We shared a veggie platter which was very tasty then for main I had chicken with leek on a bed of crushed new potatoes really enjoyed it. Was looking forward to the lovely desserts but was too full. Will definitely return

I must totally agree with the previous comment. we too went to this coffee shop- coffee great and chocolate brownie lovely - but two wet smelly dogs came in - most unpleasant. will not return simply for the fact - not everyone are dog lovers!-

I had been told the Greens Cafe catered for those with food sensitivities, so we decided to have a coffee. They were able to serve me a Soya Latte. However, I didn't enjoy my coffee as I should have done, as 2 dogs were allowed in the cafe and they definitely weren't 'Service Dogs.' One even sat on her owners... More

The cafe was very busy during the evening when we made our visit. However, we were accommodated well. My daughter had sausage and mash which she thoroughly enjoyed. I was not very hungry so when asked I was given a smaller portion of food. My friend enjoyed her traditional dish. This is a place that I would like to visit... More

The rain was lashing Grasmere, but Greens looked so warm and inviting. We were given a very friendly welcome. The menu is extensive and interesting, with plenty of vegan and gluten free options available. There is a great array of homebaking on the counter, and lots of daily specials. I loved my carrot and Corriander soup and my boyfriend enjoyed... More

During our trip to the UK earlier this year how wonderful it was to find that this restaurant made a Yorkshire Pudding. This took me straight back to my childhood. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was warm end welcoming and the whole village was just what we expected it to be.

The food was great and suited our group's varied tastes and food preferences. Shame it wasn't open for evening meals too! A great find.

This was a recommendation by the nearby guest house Beck Allen. A lovely cafe bistro with an extensive menu of snacks and light bites at lunch time. The homemade humus was the best I have ever tasted. The service was friendly and prompt. Highly recommended.
