Greens is a small Bistro in Grasmere. The food on offer is locally sourced and often organic. There are choices for those with allergies and the family run team make you feel welcome. This is an idea place to rest your legs after a walk or just indulge in the fine array of light meals and cakes on offer. The... More

First visit to this cafe and it was lovely. Service was very good and the food was of good homemade quality. Considering Grasmere was very busy and the cafe was nearly full the service we received was excellent. We didn't have to wait long for the food and enjoyed what we had..

We have been to several cafes in Grasmere previously but how remiss of us never to have visited Greens before. We did some research on gluten free options at different cafes in Grasmere and Greens seemed to have many choices which was the reason we picked it. We fully appreciate that not everyone is gluten-intolerant but it can be incredibly... More

After a long walk through easedale we chose to get a bite to eat in Greens, there are a number of small cafe / bistros and restaurants in Grasmere but we picked this place as it was highly recommended by others on Trip Advisor. We had a quick sandwich and soup, which was nice enough but nothing to rave about.... More

We visited Greens last night for the first time having seen good reviews. My wife has food intolerance problems and is presently on a low fodmap diet which limits what she can eat at the moment. The staff understood this but still cooked her a superb delicious meal meal within the guidelines of the diet. My meal was also excellent... More

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
