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

Just ate at Green's for the second time this week, this time for breakfast, and they were just as excellent. Gluten free choices galore, impeccable service and delicious food.

Popped in for lunch and was pleased to see all day breakfast on the menu. Eggs on toast and a cup of tea. All beautifully presented and eggs cooked properly. Decor and ambiance very good. Felt warm and inviting on a miserable wet day. We will definitely go back to try other food off the menu, especially the homemade cakes... More

Extremely good, hearty, home-cooked food; kind, helpful service. Our first visit to this bistro was during autumn half term 2012 (when we happily ate here three times) and more recently during our half term visit. We had lunch (after a VERY wet walk, leaving a large puddle under the table from our wet kit, which they are totally used to... More

We stopped here for coffee and cake and based on the friendly reception, booked for an evening meal. The atmosphere was pleasant and did have an intimate feel, although tables were not too close together. The food was excellent, as was the service. We would have no hesitation in returning for coffee, lunch or dinner and would recommend it.

Freshly made sandwiches to order. Good choice of fillings which you can mix and match. The large section of homemade cakes were excellent, all fresh and appealing. A small outside seating area is very pleasant in fine weather. A takeout service is also available.
