My fiance and I dropped in for some cake and a drink whilst visiting Hawkshead and we're very glad we did! The staff were very friendly, the style of the whole place was quirky and comfortable, and the food was delicious. I'm tempted to travel the 2+ hours journey just for some more chocolate cake! If we ever visited Hawkshead... More

Great place to stop for coffee and cake. Lovely seating area outside with patio heaters and cosy rugs if it's really cold. Great if you have a dog as you can enjoy a lovely stop in Hawkshead . The cafe also has a lovely gift shop selling a variety of goods to suit all.

This is a very welcoming, friendly little cafe / gift shop right in the middle of Hawkshead village. They make a great point of welcoming dogs ('four paws on the floor please' - if they behave they may get a treat from the owner!) and muddy boots - and the staff are great. We had some excellent warming snacks on... More

We've been to Poppi Red many, many, many times and havs always found the staff to be friendly and polite and our three dogs are always made to feel very welcome. The food is delicious and the cakes are scrummy -especially the macaroons!!!

Stopped for a drink. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We also looked around the shop and bought a couple of bargains. We even got a complimentary cup of mulled wine. Worth a look.
