lovely homemade soup

popped in here for lunch and had the homemade soup with a crusty ciabatta. Looking at the other people eating, the food looked very appetising. The service was quick and the staff friendly.

Grasmere has lots of cafes to choose from but this one stands out as it is well presented and clean. Coffee was very good and the chocolate tiffin was delicious. Just as well we shared one as it was very rich and quite large. The service was good too.

We went here on a January day, after wandering around a village still damaged from the recent floods. The cafe was very good. The wife had soup and bread, I had a sausage, black pudding and egg ciabatta (that's a proper ciabatta filling for your southerners out there - not a piece of lettuce or olive or aubergine in sight)...

Stopped here for light(ish) lunch, we had sandwiches. Menu price seemed a bit high but the delivered sandwiches were both excellent, justifying the price. Pizzas at next table looked excellent, but we weren't that hungry - I'd definitely like to try them another time.

What a lovely cafe! It is absolutely charming and the food was sublime. I would highly recommend eating here. We only dropped in for tea and cake (delicious homemade treacle tart with one portion big enough for two to share) but we watched with envy the breakfasts being served and were disappointed we had brekkie included at our hotel, they...

A haven of warmth and welcoming staff on a rainy day was made even better by a bowl of hot delicious soup. I have eaten in this cafe several times over the past few years and the standard of food has always been good. The Rueben's sandwich was very tasty and served with an ample helping of side salad.

Friendly service, decent prices and good food. Ideal for warming up after a walk round the Grasmere area. I would recommend the burger.
