Lovely little cafe for a snack

Lovely little cafe with such a nice atmosphere. Had the bacon sandwich and drink and it was really nice! Staff were very friendly and welcoming, definitely a place to go if you want a little snack.

We stumbled across Brambles when we were exploring Windermere, thought it had a homely vibe to it so popped in for a drink. My boyfriend had a Cappuccino and I had a chocolate milkshake, both very very yummy and prices are good too. They had a shelf with games, books, kids toys, newspapers even Wifi if you wanted that.

We entered the Brambles without realising that it was near closing time. (It was after we ordered our food that we noticed the closing time) However the 'miserable chef' served us a simple but delicious meal with a smile. If all miserable people were as cheerful, the world would be a much better place :)

Visited on Thursday and the welcome and attentiveness of the staff was first class. Dogs are also made very welcome. Our lunch was excellent and I would highly recommend this establishment

It was raining in Windermere. Of course. Despite the fact that the cool splatter was refreshing and very much appreciated by this drought-affected Californian, we decided to duck into this cozy shop called Brambles. We sat down and spoke with the owner, asking about a traditional British tea service. It turns out that the traditional thing -- with tiered cake... More

Was desperate for ice cream (specifically with a flake) on a very hot day and the gentleman working there admitted they didn't have any flakes but that the ice cream parlour just up the road would have. So impressed that he would be so honest knowing it would mean we wouldn't buy anything there. Lovely guy and hope to go... More

We called here for the second time in a couple of months for a coffee although our dogs were welcome inside it was pleasant enough to sit. The coffee was lovely and the unexpected offer of top up was gratefully accepted. We haven't eaten there yet but will do so soon and report back!

Went here for breakfast, staff very friendly ordered a full breakfast disappointed that sausage was only one chipolata that was already cooked and warmed up in the microwave as were the beans but bacon eggs and tomato cooked fresh on griddle don't understand why sausages not cooked fresh as well, food was nice for the price.

As a family of four, we had a faultlessly lovely late lunch at this tearoom. Superb friendly service, excellent food, particularly a spectacular array of lovely cakes, and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit, thoroughly recommended.
