Great Find

So Windermere on a Bank Holiday Monday probably not the best idea! But we found this little gem plus a free hour long parking space right outside. Staff couldn't have been more helpful - gave us a choice of seats, explained specials and offers and told our 9 year old to help herself to books and... read more

Visited the lakes for the day. Kids really wanted a milkshake, found this little cafe by chance. Lovely milkshakes, yummy carrot cake and even the dog was allowed inside. Very warm, welcoming and friendly. Will definitely visit again.

We received a lovely cheery welcome in this lovely little café. The food was excellent and the service efficient. They even made fresh scones for us. To top it all off the prices were great. All in all a very enjoyable experience. We'll be back.

Arrived in the lakes for a long weekend yesterday and it was pouring down in Windermere and our family of 7 including young kids and a dog were hungry and in need of some shelter! Came across this little gem. Soup and sandwich for £5, delicious and great value. Staff very friendly and helpful. Toys for the kids, newspapers and... More

This cafe is great, so much so when we are in The Lakes we visit almost every day. Kev and Amanda are so welcoming. The food is great and the dog likes it too! It has a terrific atmosphere with lots of locals, Cannot recommend highly enough.

So good I bought a second one to take home. They were also happy to give free refills on the coffee which was very welcome and a really nice homely... More

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.
