Walked in very close to closing time and was welcomed very warmly by all the staff. Cake, hot chocolate and cappuccino were all lovely and the lady that served us even gave us some complimentary scones before we left

What a lovely cafe this is. Super friendly, helpful staff who create a relaxing atmosphere. The cooked breakfast was wonderful, only downside was that I was then too full to try the cake! A must visit :)

We found this place while looking on TripAdvisor and were encouraged by the great reviews. What a shame we didn't give it a try until the last day of our holiday! We visited late one afternoon and had tea and cake. The cake was amazing!...More

Shared a hummus and olive platter and a Camembert and sourdough platter with my boyfriend and it was delicious. Friendly staff and lovely atmosphere.

This is our second visit since the Copper Pot opened and we have left on both occasions delighted. Cakes are excellent, chocolate carmel hazelnut is a highlight. Plus proper coffee made by hand and not a touch button machine!

The menu is quite limited and can be viewed online. Whenever I have asked, the staff are happy to adapt the menu to suit.

The little café in the Lakes. A cosy hub in the heart of Ambleside jammed with good food, coffee, music and friendly faces!
