“Good Coffee Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

A very small coffee shop but well worth a visit. Friendly staff. We had lunch here. We shared a toasted panini followed by a cherry scone, a banana and toffee muffin myself a gingerbread latte which was fab fab fab and my husband a cappuccino the cost £14.00 which is very good value for tasty food. Dog friendly great staff what more could you ask for well worth a visit.

“Hotchocstic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

A relentless week of rain caused us to look for more low level pursuits than climbing the hills. Sitting in this café on the cosy sofas upstairs with a mug of hot chocolate proved to be a winner. So much so that we did it on three separate days. Just to check it was as good as it was the first time. It was. You get a brimming mug of hot hot-chocolate. So many places serve it slightly lukewarm. And it had a layer of marsh mallows on top with some melted chocolate over that. A long spoon is provided. Delicious. We also liked that there are newspapers, magazines and books provided.

“Best coffee in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Not easy finding a good coffee on our travels around the UK so we were very excited to find this little gem. To add to the pleasure, you can also test your general knowledge with their trivial pursuit cards. Great idea!

“Excellent and huge hot chocolate mugs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We stopped here for a quick drink and both chose the special hot chocolate with 'the trimmings', which was a huge mug full with cream and marshmallows - almost a meal in itself. It was really yummy and warmed us up well on a wet morning in Keswick. Comfy seating upstairs and internet access available. Good friendly service from the staff.

“Best coffee and service in Keswick!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

I was staying in Keswick for a long weekend and, when away from home, I always look for a good coffee shop wherever I go. So, I was delighted to discover Java in Keswick. What can I say, except that the coffee is superb and the service even better! Don't go to Keswick without visiting this wonderful independent coffee shop. As a certain movie star once famously said, "I'll be back....."
