We went down to Ambleside because the weather was too poor to do any walking that day. It seemed everyone else felt the same way and we couldn't park in the usual car park, so went to the bottom of the town and parked in the one just below the cafe, which is located above the climbing wall. In need of a hot drink and a snack, we dived immediately indoors and climbed the (many) stairs to the cafe.
What a find it was! It's clean, bright and serves a great range of beverages, snacks and meals at extremely reasonable prices. We had a pot of tea each and shared a ciabatta filled with hot, freshly cooked chicken and sun-dried tomatoes and the biggest piece of brownie I've ever seen - it was also the best brownie I've ever eaten and more than generous for the two of us. There's free wifi and dogs are welcomed - we cooed and then wept over a gorgeous Weimeraner (we were still grieving the sudden death of our much-loved dog two weeks before).
A very well-recommended place in a town full of cafes.
