Perfect after a day on the fells or a stroll around the shops. Feeling peckish? We offer delicious continental style lunches between midday and 3.00pm, freshly prepared, using only the finest ingredients.

Visited with my family and our dog. The staff ensured that we were sat in a cool area and provided a huge bowl of water for Logan. The food was as lovely as ever as were the mocktails. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive and made the visit a pleasure. Thank you.

After a nice relaxing day in Keswick we went here for some Tapas. We've eaten here several times. There was a good selection of dishes and we had a flatbread too. Service was very good and food was excellent. Followed up with coffee and a dessert and it was all very reasonably priced. Free wifi too

A beautiful Café Bar run by people who understand good service, excellent food and a warm welcome. Go for breakfast, the American is brilliant, lunch with open sandwiches and a glass of wine, evening for Tapas. Been going for a few years and it only gets better. The even welcomed the 3 year old grandson.

Smart modern cafe/bar in Keswick. Nice surroundings and some tasty tapas to try. Live music when we visited. Good alternative to traditional pubs.

Cafe 26 was really impressive, the food, the decor, the staff, the ambiance, the whole thing. The people behind are clearly passionate about the cafe and it really comes across, we had both lunch and breakfast there and each meal was excellent. My only regret is that now I'm a father of a 3 year old my days of sitting... More
