Also had a portion of cheese on toast ( more... More

We stumbled upon brambles in our search for lunch in Windermere. We were surprised by the lack of cafes, so were happy to find it. The food was good, a nice toasty (possibly could have been toasted more) and a nice selection of cakes. The owners were friendly and its good value.

Stopped off at Windermere on our way down from Caldbeck to Lincoln. Lovely town worth a visit and the Brambles cafe very nice with friendly welcoming owners. We only had Teacakes, scones and hot beverages but I would certainly reccomend this little cafe/tearooms. Very dog friendly my 2 greyhounds felt very welcome. Thanks

Been to Brambles several times and would recommend it. Always get service with smile by Amanda who explains any meal deals. Good selection of fresh sandwiches and baguettes, and large slices of home made cake. I was given a free coffee top up to wash down my cake. Well worth a visit.

Called in for spot of breakfast. Got a bacon butty and bottomless coffee. Cooked in front of us and really tasty. Service was really friendly and the lady who served us took time to talk to all the customers even recommending local attractions, including best ways to get there. There are lots of places to eat in and around Windermere,... More

We dropped in for afternoon cake and coffee and were really impressed with the warm welcome we received. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone who came in when we were there, were treated with the same courtesy and excellent service. The lemon drizzle and chocolate cake portions were massive and the coffee piping hot! A great cafe - would... More

Came across this tearoom as we had arrived in Windermere later than expected. Sat outside in the sunshine, was waited on and we both ordered a sandwich and coffee. It arrived on really fab bloomer type bread, really fresh accompanied with a side salad, more than a garnish, and the owner came to ask which flavour of hand-cut crisps we... More

We didn't eat, but stopped for a cup of tea. The food we saw being consumed by other customers looked very good. Very clean everywhere, with helpful and cheerful staff. We asked for tea for two, and got a large, pot of excellent tea. The cafe has the smallest toilet I have ever used: think half the size of Ryannair,... More
