Been coming here for years, excellent choice of coffees and cakes and always a warm welcome. The quality of the food is great as well. Highly recommended.

“Cheese Scones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The toasted cheese scones we enjoyed in this cheerful, cosy café were some of the best we have ever tasted. Service and tea were excellent too. Real leaves served in unusual pots. Marvellous.

“Excellent little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Stopped today for a coffee and slice of apple pie. The coffee was delicious and fresh as was the pie, but the best thing about our experience was the warm welcome we received. I will definitely visit again next time I find myself in Ambleside. Highly recommended.

“Good food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

If you are looking for somewhere nice for lunch then this cafe is ideal. It is ideally positioned just down from the Tourist Info Office on one of the main streets.
I had a very tasty Brie and cranberry toastie with tea made from loose tea leaves. My mother enjoyed a delicious bowlful of thick vegetable soup. Just what we needed!

“Little Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Cafe Treff not only offer excellent tea and amazing coffee, their hot toasted sandwiches are fantastic, the best toasted sandwich I have ever tasted. They also, have a cake display to die for, my favourite is the lemon cheesecake. The staff are very friendly, especially, the owner who made us very welcome, we will definitely be back.
