Weve been here a couple of times now as we usually have our dogs with us when we visit Grasmere. Its ideal whatever the weather as you can sit outside under an umbrella and dogs are welcome outside. The food has always been great with a different choice to youre usual gammon and eggs, and reasonable prices for the Lake... More

Good quality food and menu has range of breakfast, lunch and snack options. Caters for vegan, vegetarian, dairy free and gluten free diets including soy milk, vegan brownies and carrot cake, soy ice cream and lots of GF cakes! Sadly not open for dinners anymore which is disappointing, also is pricey (£25 for 2 light-ish lunches and drinks) and not... More

This cafe never fails to impress us. It caters for all dietary needs really well, it's friendly, they offer outdoor seating and water for your dog, but most importantly the food, tea and cake are very, very tasty! The portions are a good size - perfect for filling you up after a day of walking. We always go back to... More

Having been a longtime annual visitor to Greens I was delighted to see the new vegan options on the menu in addition to the good range of vegetarian choices. I wish we had come for lunch but instead I was very happy with the vegan brownie, very dense and chocolatey. Dog and family friendly. A must visit cafe for every... More

Went here on a rare evening opening. What can I say. Fabulous food and great selection of vegetarian, vegan and celiac foods. My wife being fussy, vegetarian and celiac was catered for with no problems what's so ever and this was fantastic as she is very hard to please. Food was amazing and service was very pleasant. I would definitely... More

A little disappointing. The hummus and grated carrot was tasty but sliced bread wasn't good enough to justify the £4.20 price tag. The ham and cheese was v plain. The atmosphere was rather hassled. Not as good as it was last time. Take it easy and smile at your customers. You have some good food.
