I had a full English breakfast, and it was lovely. The bacon (two rashers), Hienz baked beans, mushrooms, poached egg (which was perfectly cooked), and a Cumberland sausage (not so nice, a bit hard, however I'm fussy when it comes to eating sausages). My girlfriend had the vegetarian breakfast, which she really enjoyed and was happy to get proper veggie... More

We were looking for lunch in Grasmere and the pubs were either disappointing or too expensive so we ended up in a cafe. I am not a cafe person so was not particularly looking forward to it but it was absolutely brilliant. Service was helpful without being intrusive, there was an excellent choice (including gluten-free) and the food quality was... More

We spent a week in Grasmere and visited Greens 4 times. To find somewhere that offers such a wide variety of choice for gluten free diets was a real treat. It is the first time in 6 years that I have been able to have a 3 course evening meal (the sticky toffee pudding is gorgeous), without having to pre... More

Greens is one of those healthy eateries without any of the pretense. It cares about lovely food in a healthy way and their homemade granola is just delicious. Constructive criticism might be a) please warm the plates before serving and b) might be nice to serve the scrambled eggs actually on the toast rather than on the side. Tiny thing... More

It is always great to sit down at Greens and know that I am going to get a great choice. As someone who is wheat intolerant Greens is a dream come true. The pear and ginger pudding was wonderful yesterday, I have added it to my favourites list alongside the chocolate brownies (to die for) I also find out useful... More

This place caters for all tastes. I had a toastie with hummus and it was filled to bursting with delicious home made hummus. Had pot of coffee later in the day and that was also good stuff, especially with a slice of cake.

We called in at this cafe after a mammoth hike, just as it was preparing for the evening session (which starts from 6pm Friday, Saturday, Monday andTuesday), so it was still very quiet when we arrived on this bright Tuesday evening.. As it was a sunny evening we sat outside in the small courtyard, which is a pleasant spot, although... More

We walked from the Britannia inn in the Langdale estate over to Grassmere especially to go to Greens. We have two members of our family that are coeliacs and it was fabulous to see that were well catered for and the rest of the family enjoyed there meal ... We would love to be back.
