Dog friendly cafe bar not far from the main square in Keswick. Friendly staff and a generous size pot of tea for 1 (at least 4 cups worth).

Busy and small but flexible. Nice mix of Spanish (tapa's) and Italian (pizzas and coffee). We could join a table and have a drink (good beers as well) until we got a table for two. Had some tapa's and a calzone. Both really good.

We visited here as part of our honeymoon. We walked round Keswick looking for somewhere that caught our eye. This place is a fantastic little gem the food is delicious and reasonably priced. We were amazed at how well the two lads running the bar and food area were. We will certainly visit again when we next go to Keswick.

Ordered the Pizza of the moment, lovely thin base with roasted red pepper, onion, olives, feta and pesto plus 4 tapas dishes - marinated anchovies, chorizo in red wine, baked Camembert and padron peppers. Superb. I guess it looked as good as it tasted - a couple who came in after us asked the waitress what we had and said... More
