Nice atmosphere, welcoming staff and nice food

This had everything we wanted. Really nice food that was very reasonably priced, staff that wanted to make sure we were comfortable and a relaxed atmosphere for lunch. Would definitely recommend for a lunch and drinks break while in Windermere!

After wandering round Bowness looking for a gluten free menu we stumbled across this little tea room, they had all the allergen signage outside so in we went. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and when we enquired about gluten free they immediately reeled off a large list of items they had on offer especially sandwiches and a lovely... More

We went here for lunch on our last day. It's a little tricky to find, down a side street near the Macdonald. First off, it was peaceful! The only place we managed to go that wasn't full of crying children! There's plenty of seating, both down- and upstairs. It has a varied menu, and we both enjoyed our meals (I... More

Found this little gem on a day trip to Windermere. Had around an hour max for lunch so just fancied a toastie or a baked potato. A quick look on Tripadvisor had this place fourth best so decided to give it a bash. It's not the easiest to find to be honest, ended out having to use Google maps as... More

Best cake I've had, choc fudge cake unbelievable. Owner was lovely, we're from Liverpool and he is from Ormskirk which is close so good chat. Would definitely recommend. High up on trip advisor for a reason

We had been to St Martins cafe before years ago and I remembered we had a nice lunch back then, so we went back on a recent visit to Bowness-on-Windermere. We had the tomato & pesto soup, which was very tasty and came with a warm brown roll and butter. Also a toasty with very tender beef and blue cheese... More

Called here for a morning snack, I had a scone with jam, which was delicious. Partner had a bacon sandwich which he devoured. Friendly staff and good service. Will be back.
