reasonable prices and a lovely patio area to sit and watch people go about their business in Hawkshead. It also has a good selection of gifts and cards for sale along with Cath Kidtson goodies.

Called into Poppi Red for both elevenses and lunch today whilst visiting Hawkshead for the Beatrix Potter attractions. On both occasions we found the service to be prompt, friendly and professional. Our cake at elevenses and lunch were both very tasty with good portion size and although a little on the pricey side, this is probably related to the vicinity... More

Stopped here for a quiet half hour. Lovely sitting outside and watching the world go by. Staff were helpful and friendly. Coffee and crumpets were very good.

Stopped for tea and cake in the afternoon. Lovely selection of cakes. Nice little cafe for a quick bit to eat was quite busy for a small place which was a good sign. Really nice little place.
