We visited Greens cafe twice, each time after a very wet hike through the beautiful countryside. They cater for all restrictive diets, gluten free, dairy free, as well as for meat/gluten/sugar eaters!!! The owner, who cooks all the cakes, came over to our table on our return to discuss our thoughts. She even offered to send me her recipes for... More

This place has everything that you will probably need when you are looking after breakfast in Grasmere. Great food with vegetarian option available, wide selection of different tastes of tea and not so overpriced menu as in other "restaurants". Really helpful staff and kind welcome left a great impression on us.

We chose this place because it was tipping down with rain and we'd just completed a walk from Ambleside and in need of sustenance. Our little dog, Hugo, was welcomed and we found a spot by a radiator so he could warm up. It was great to find a good selection of veggie food in such a small place. The... More

We've always been fans, largely on the basis of a stupendous Victoria sponge and the wee fella's obsession with their ice cream (incredibly chocolate-y, if I remember correctly) plus Mrs S loves their coffee but hadn't had an actual lunch there until recently. Eejits. The BLT was sensational, put it this way, not too much L or T (ie just... More

We have been to Grasmere so many times but astonishingly had never been here before. We were a party of four adults and two very young boys. The food is different without being too different and everything was gorgeous. The staff were wonderfully accommodating with the children. Now we have found this marvellous place we will make it a regular... More

Plenty of choice in Grasmere but just wanted a snack after a morning walking the hills. First good sign was a recommendation by a customer just leaving, so thank you for that. Café was clean, nicely furnished with prompt and efficient service. Food was very good, freshly cooked and salad lovely and crunchy and very good value - highly recommend.

My partner took me away to the lake district for a few days for my birthday. As a coeliac I like to research places to eat before I go anywhere to make sure there is somewhere that can cater for me. Green's was somewhere that caters for everyone and from the website you can tell they are passionate about catering... More

We just stopped here for coffee & cake, as we had our dogs with us & were allowed to bring them inside. It was very nice.

Fantastic to find a vegan friendly restaurant in such a rural, picturesque location. My vegetarian breakfast was mostly lovely, and the brownie was very tasty. Soya ice cream was a nice thought. Uncooked egg white on top of my fried egg yolk was an unpleasant error, though. As was forgetting to put mango chutney in the houmous, pepper and chutney... More
