“High quality cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

We've been here a few times because the cakes, scones, muffins etc are obviously home made and good quality.

It's not cheap but it is definitely a case if getting what you pay for. I'd rather have coffee and cake less often but better quality but that's just me.

Only downside was the somewhat abrasive staff - it was the end of a long day.

“Nice atmosphere. Good quality food. Free WiFi. Great for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Came here with the family for lunch. Not especially cheap but good quality food. Home made bread, soup and sandwiches. Cater well for children too with books and children's portions of most things. We had two kids sandwiches and the most delicious Cumbrian rarebit that came with rocket and home made coleslaw (£6.95). Will be coming again.

“Quality with comfort and wi-fi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Pumpkin is a very good cafe, serving a range of 'home-made' food and drinks. The free wi-fi is a bonus for those who need to feel connected. Seating is basically all upstairs, apart from a couple of bar style high seats and an wall attached surface, so those with mobility issues will really struggle up narrow and twisted stairs. The only down sides are that the 'breakfast' menu stops at 11.30, on the dot! Additionally lunchtime is a bit fussy, in other words not much is plain and simple.
Also the scones are surprisingly bland. Not the best in Keswick and dearer than many, but worth a visit.

“Lovely!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Coffee is lovely and their fresh scones and jam are an absolute treat! lots of variety to choose from if you have a sweet tooth or even a large selection of sandwiches. Again a little pricey but everywhere is in Keswick. Well worth a visit, we go here every time

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Well worth a visit, delicious food, great teas and coffees and free wifi! Comfortable seating area upstairs. Order at counter when you enter and the staff bring it to your table. Can recommend eggs benedict, cumbrian rarebit and the BLT.
