We've been here a few times now. You can take you dogs in and they are very welcoming. Hot chocolate is a must, as are the cakes. Open even in the winter months

We live about an hour from the Lake District and often go for a day out. Today we visited Grasmere and as we liked the look of Heidi's from the outside went in for lunch. We were served by a very pleasant waitress, and although it was quite busy she did not appear to be harassed. We liked the decor,... More

...on the outside. Once inside, however, it all goes downhill. We popped in for a quick brunch, tempted by the Illy sign and inviting look of the place. I had the 'Belgian waffles with mixed berries and Greek yoghurt', and my girlfriend opted for soup: the 'waffles' turned out to be a solitary bought-in affair topped with a frozen berry... More

Looks fabulous, unfortunately our lunch didnt live up to expectation! However this wasn't found out until we had climbed the fells and sat for lunch at a lakeside. Disappointing, mushy sandwich fillings and virtually inedible.

We popped in here on our first walk around Grasmere. We decided to go for a treat and have the works hot chocolate! We weren't disappointed, it was delicious :) The cafe itself is cosy and comfortable with a beautiful interior. The staff were absolutely delightful. Thankyou :)

Popped in here to buy some bottles of beer as we saw through the window they've got a good selection. We ended up staying for tea and cake, as it was such a nice little cafe. Staff were very friendly and happy to host us even though it was nearly closing time!

Situated right in the middle of Grasmere village this is a great place to shelter from the rain and grab a bite to eat. They do excellent breakfasts plus cakes and snacks throughout the day. You can also get a packed lunch for your day on the fells. If you like the food there is also a selection of teas,... More

Visited Grasmere with my partner, our mothers and our two dogs. We were looking for somewhere to stop for coffee and I just popped into Heidi's to find out if they allowed dogs. Not only did they allow them, they made them welcome and gave them biscuits. The place seemed so lovely and inviting we decided to have an early... More
