Chance visit on the morning of leaving Keswick to set us up for the drive home and I'm so glad I picked this place. Great choice of food on the menu especially since we called in for breakfast. I had the pancakes with bacon and syrup for the first time and was not disappointed! Food was lovely, quick service even... More

Long time passing this place and heard some good reports. Decided to visit as a nice day arrived. Two people so beloved it would be nice a straight forward procedure. Ordered meal, and then waited. Then waited. Then waited, and waited. When the meal eventually arrived it was very nice. Not the best but by no means not the worst,... More

Clean place, good fresh food and service. Would have got 4 if the eggs Benedict hadn't been over cooked / tasted of too much vinegar. Cajun burger and sweet potato fries were really good. Would go back for a slice of delicious cake

Took my young family here for lunch (the kids particularly liked the milkshakes) whilst on holiday and we inadvertently left my eldest's diary before heading home and we were so surprised and amazed when the staff posted it back to us. Will definitely be going to this cafe again! Also great coffee!

Bacon, egg, light fluffy pancakes and maple syrup. Delish! Awesome pint of tea to chug it all down. Seriously though highly recommended!

Really recommend this cafe, whether you are a motorbike fanatic or not. The food is excellent and the service great. If you are a motorbike fanatic, you will love even more! We had the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. delicious. Another visit we had the full english breakfast. Really good value for money.

Whilst out having a walk with the family and dog, we called in on the way back home for a bite and a drink and we were blown away with the fantastic service we received! Fantastic pancakes and fry up :0) only downside is that the chef was a bluenose lol. Seriously see you again very soon guys ;0)

In and around the lakes on a Sunday and fancy some brunch then head here. Really good coffees, good breakfast and lovely pancakes. Staff really good only criticism is for the price pay for the milkshake I would have expected a real one made with ice cream not milk and powder. But other than this will definitely be going again,... More
