I didn't go inside, which is also a shop. It was a hot sunny day and we sat outside and watched the world go by. Very good cup of tea and I had tea bread with cheese and the others had scones,jam and cream. All very good.

Wow, I was spoilt for choice here, what a scrumptious selection of cakes. Can recommend a cappuccino with Bakewell slice, Victoria sponge and Lemon drizzle cake(shared between my party). Yum yum. Shop also has a selection of souvenir gifts.

Lovely postion overlooking the main street of Hawkshead. Small verandah with tables and chairs. Mismatched china cups and lovely mugs and tea-pots. Ordered Earl Grey Tea with lemon and toasted crumpets with cheese and chutney Yum! Perfect place and the weather was great too. Friendly staff and inside a wonderful shop selling lots of goodies. Do visit if in Hawkshead... More

This is a great place - quirky little shop with a beautifully presented cafe attached. We just had tea/coffee & cakes but the victoria sandwich was so good we came back again a couple of days later for more! Well worth a visit if you're in the Hawkshead area.

We sat outside on the veranda overlooking the village. Table service was very quick and we were served by a charming lady. Excellent tea and extremely large scones, plenty of jam and cream which was delicious. The shop also sells a variety of gifts.

A fantastic selection making it difficult to choose! We went for the chunk of yummy flapjack which was big enough to share for a late morning snack. It was so good... More

It's quirky for sure; they provide cushions for the outside seating and the inside is a little random. When we asked for a salad, they said that whilst it wasn't on the menu, they'd try; not a bad response, but when it came to the table......had they tried! They extra-miled it for us, which marks them out from the mere... More

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.
