We love this cafe and visit whenever we are in Grasmere (not often enough!). The food is delicious, home cooked and portions are generous. We had a fabulous cream tea on our latest visit that more than hit the mark after a 5 hour hike around the glorious local area.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere, veggie friendly, gluten free cakes that taste divine, the best choc brownie I have tasted, and they were happy to light a candle and put it on a cup cake for my wife's birthday. Oh, and the dog was welcome too. Our new favourite family eaterie in the Lakes.

Stopped here for a light lunch, outdoor seating perfect as the sun shown in a breathless autumn afternoon. I had a lovely Cumberland sausage baguette, Liz had the rarebit, with attitude. Local blend tea.

Indoor and outdoor seating in a nice spot near to the church. Very friendly and excellent service. Lots of home cooked options and the leek & potato soup was very tasty and welcome after a round trip to Easdale Tarn. We will definitely be making a return visit!

A very popular bistro which served us very good, tasty meals - just what we needed for a late lunch, after having spent a couple of hours hiking in the late morning/early afternoon. Very cosy indoors, and most welcoming; and the staff were quite attentive during our visit. A good selection displayed on the menu, including various gluten free, vegan... More

We always visit Greens when we are in Grasmere. My wife is on a gluten free diet and there are always a vast choice of snacks / meals available. See you in February.

A lovely friendly cafe offering home cooked food. Plenty of gluten and dairy free options, great soups, homemade rolls and superfood salads. The cakes looked pretty good too.

I can't speak for the cooked food which did happen to look quite appetising however we only opted for a few hot chocolates and a shortbread. They were extremely hot to the point you couldn't drink them and formed a skin on top by the time they had cooled down. It... More
