This is a lovely place to go in the heart of Grasmere, whether you want lunch or a cup of coffee with a delicious home made cake. The interior is smart and modern but there is also the possibility of sitting on the terrace overlooking the river. On our latest visit I had an excellent and very seasonal cup of... More

Our favourite stop for lovely soup and a coffee. Not sure where people have found the rude staff, they were warm and friendly. Give it a try, you will love it.

We visited on a rainy day after a walk around the lake. The cafe was lovely and warm with a friendly welcome from the lady behind the counter. Admittedly, the cafe was not busy, but we received our food quickly and we were very pleased that the staff were happy to provide a dish that wasn't on the menu when... More

This was our second visit to this delightful cafe overlooking the river. You can also sit outside on the heated patio. The food and service are spot on. Its a very relaxing cafe.

This place may only be a cafe but seems to think it is acceptable for its staff to be cocky, rude and down right obnoxious to its patrons. Not good enough and the cake was pretty average. With a plethora of alternatives, don't bother with this cafe. I certainly won't be back.

Having wandered around the charming village of Grasmere with my family, we happened upon this cafe and decided to take a quick break and get a quick hot drink. Whilst waiting in the queue (they weren't even busy but the staff were slow), a young chap with a beard who wasn't happy about a cream tea was dealt with really... More

If you're looking for jaw-droppingly rude service, under baked scones and artificial tasting chocolate cake, then this is the place for you. Upon ordering a scone with cream and jam were given a white substance that tasted like aerated, watered-down, UHT cream substitute. Thinking we'd been given the wrong thing, we took it back to the counter and asked whether... More

Lovely fresh food. Had soup on this occasion - really good. Last time I visited I had the lemon drizzle cake - awesome. The outdoor seating has a great view over the river and churchyard.
