Lovely little cafe

Very compact and bijou café, (no good if you have a pushchair). Cakes I thought were pricey for what they were, but the Bakewell was very good. Hot chocolate and mocha were fairly standard. Not a very good rating and not an average rating but just falls in the good category because of the cake.

This cafe used to have a great reputation, but my wife was asked to leave 'because they needed the table', even before having finished her (second) drink. Tables were still free at that point. This must rate highly for cafe 'Hara-kiri'. Staff training needed.

We popped in here for a quick drink and a piece of cake. Appearances are definitely deceiving, although it looks a lovely quaint little tea shop. We found the staff rude and very unhelpful. There are many a sign dotted around asking you to 'PLEASE DO NOT'....move tables, touch the window, place the towels in the bin, allow dogs on... More

We called into Cafe Latte to get warm after a cruise on the Lake. It is very compact inside with only a handful of tables which are very close together. There was a good selection of cakes to choose from all of which were homemade. The lemon and ginger cake was tasty as was the raspberry and white chocolate cake.... More

We popped in on a Friday afternoon for lunch. Initially the cafe was empty but it soon filled up. It's rather small inside so at times it felt like we sat on other people's laps (people had to get up out of their chairs to let others in / out of the main door or to go the toilet). However,...

Visited today with family. Lovely atmosphere, well decorated and friendly staff. Sampled a wide selection of the menu, including soup, jacket potato's, lemon meringue & scones. All home made, top quality and good portions. The scones were delicious, even took 4 home for tea! Very reasonably priced and can't wait to return next time we are in the area.
