The food here was good. We had a panini and breakfast. There is little atmosphere despite the cafe being quite full. I'm pleased we didn't have our children with us as we wouldn't be able to relax. Despite being on a busy street once inside it is quite quiet. Staff were all friendly.

We regularly stop for coffee or a quick snack and have never been disappointed. Friendly staff, nice food and pleasant outside in the warm weather.

Amazing food very good and fresh especially the chocolate brownie ice cream sundae and being a chef myself I know what to look for. Staff are really helpful and friendly providing excellent customer service. Nice relaxed atmosphere and child friendly my daughter loved being a little lady that lunches. Will definitely go again.

Well a wet and grim visit to Penrith on our way back from Glasgow needed some brightening up (and drying out!), and this place didn't disappoint. Coffee was the best we had all week and scones and carrot cake were lovely. Well done team, keep up the good work!

The food is lovely and up to date. All very modern but without the 'cheffiness' that can spoil some places. It is reasonably priced and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Today I ordered the tortilla wrap and I throughly enjoyed it. The menu had a good variety of choice. The tables were cleaned and the toilet had been cleaned. The staff seemed friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this cafe.

We happened upon this great cafe a few years ago and had a lovely lunch. We tend to go now for breakfast. The full English is always the choice of hubster and I have the eggs benedict. Our 7 year old is always happy with the toasted tea cake and a glass of milk. Service is very good, and food... More

While visiting Penrith I was absolutely delighted to find this little gem - lunch here was the highlight of a visit to what is a pretty grim & depressing little town. I thoroughly enjoyed the soup & sandwich combo which I followed with a slice of their home made & very delicious Lemon Drizzle Cake. The staff are friendly; the... More
