It seems to me the reviewers being negative would feel more at home in a McDonalds. The "brusque" waiter clearly has special needs and it's great that Heidi's is giving him a chance. Yes he can come across as a bit short but both he and the rest of the staff have great personalities and looked after its really well.... More

We choose Heidi's because it looked so inviting. Just gone 4pm and we were looking forward to tea and a slice cake after our journey. The gentleman who served us was brusque in manner and service. For 2 teas and 1 slice cake it was £9.45 -- over priced for a poor experience.

We had a lovely lunch at Heidi's Place. The weather was pretty miserable outside but the staff and the atmosphere at Heidi's was very welcoming. The food choice was good, very tasty. We will definitely be back next time we're in or passing through Grasmere. Lovely little gift shop too.

I can't understand the negative reviews as they bear no relation to this high quality establishment. We came in for a coffee but decided to have lunch and were not disappointed. We had a Cumberland sausage baguette and a pulled pork & apple sauce one. They come cut in two so we had half each. They were utterly delicious and... More

Me and my family decided to try a different cafe in Grasmere and came across Heidi's Cafe. It was lovely inside. Lot's of trinkets to look at. We then waited 15 minutes to be served. The cafe wasn't busy. They got our order mixed up and we had to send the food back. Then when we came to pay they... More

We decided we would drive through to Grasmere on our way home. We parked our car in the garden centre car park and headed into the centre of the village We decided to pop into Heidi's because we noticed they did sandwiches to take away and they had a HUGE selection of jars. We were greeted by a friendly smile... More

We have been using Heidi's to purchase sandwiches and cake during our cycling trips and always found the quality to be excellent. However this year things have changed. The sandwich filing options were much reduced and the bread of poor quality. All in all very tasteless. The cakes appear to be unchanged but something seems to have changed for the... More

Squeezed into this lovely cafe on Easter Sunday for a late lunch with 4 hungry children. Our 6 year old daughter was not on her best behaviour unfortunately but the staff were very helpful at distracting her from her tantrum. Despite being very busy, the service was quick and the waitresses very personable. I went for the Lakeland smokey (smoked... More
