Our favourite bar in Keswick. Taps, freshly made pizza, wine and beer. Perfect and service with a smile always. A place not to be missed if you are in the area. I am told the coffee is also excellent but I a a wine girl !

Very good pizza and tapas. Great Belgian beer. Dizzy barmaid with small attention span. Quite small so visit early if you want to eat - it gets crowded.

Enjoyed an afternoon break in this friendly bar restaurant. Tasty food to suit a variety of tastes and a relaxed atmosphere were perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Service was friendly but slow - I was in no rush so that was not an issue.

We come to Keswick every year and visit this cafe. However, it has now been absolutely ruined by the rude, incompetent female member of staff who was working this evening. On the list, never visiting again.

We ate here a couple of weeks ago whilst on holiday and really enjoyed it. It's a buzzy sort of place - a bit different from the norm, more like a continental café/wine bar. Very friendly easy going staff, great beer and wine and the pizzas were good.

After a stay overnight in Keswick we spent the morning discovering the area and called in the Square a Orange Cafe for a bite to eat and what a pleasant surprise, good food, tasty, good portions with staff attentive and keen to please. Well done and keep up the good work
