Always love eating here whenever we come to Keswick. Food in the evening is tapas style with flatbreads which is just what we like. The cafe takes dogs and children up until 9pm in the evenings.

We have come to Keswick regularly over the last 24 years as children, as a couple and now as a family. We've eaten in most of the generally lovely if not gourmet cafes, pubs and restaurants dotted around. A few years ago-maybe 5-when my kids were 6 months and 2 we made an emergency exit to Keswick when my partner... More

We dropped in to warm up and escape the rain. Service was slow and table clearing was obviously not a priority however this we realised was part of the charm - all very laid back and very friendly staff. Coffee and hot chocolates not half bad either. Hope to return one evening with my other half for some live music... More

My wife and I had a very pleasant evening here. We liked the subdued decor, the soft music and the warm fire. The tapas and flat-breads we chose were tasty and the service friendly. We'd definitely come back - we made an excellent choice.

Me and my boyfriend popped in here for a afternoon drink and ended up coming back in the evening for wine and tapas. It has a great atmosphere, modern music and catered more to couples and groups than families. We enjoyed the cocktails and prosecco - definitely try the tapas. I wouldn't say the service is the fastest but to... More

Been here a few times now, usually for breakfast and it never disappoints. Lovely friendly staff, clean stylish interior and beat of all is the Eggs Royale breakfast, outstanding. Can't recommend highly enough, if you're in keswick you must give this place a visit.

Came here today for some lunch and a beer wow! Amazing atmosphere and a bohemian ambience, so relaxing and enjoyable. The food was second to none, compliments to the chef. The beer was of a similar high standard lovely fresh clean crisp bubbly lager. It was so lovely I stayed for another 8 pints. Unfortunately I can't remember leaving but... More

Just arrived back from Keswick after a one night stay. Decided on a tapas night for a change, and so glad we did. Atmosphere was really lively, the staff we'r very busy but always approachable with a friendly smile. The food is very good, flatbreads delicious! Very enjoyable night, bottle of wine coffee and liqueur's to finish.Well worth a visit.

Fab location in the heart of Keswick within minutes of everything you could need, cinema, Derwent water, the market and shops. We had Cafe 26 tapas and flatbreads which were delicious followed by cocktails! Lovely room, comfy beds, followed by a delicious breakfast the next morning. staff were all helpful and friendly. We had a brilliant stay, thanks.
