Always go here when staying in Keswick. The food is always lovely and it was this time. They have gorgeous homemade cakes too. The staff are usually very nice and friendly too.

We went for a walk around part of Derwentwater lake and popped into Treeby's cafe for cakes and coffee. They were lovely - just what we needed!

Dropped in for lunch..had a short wait outside but it was worth it and staff were attentive and informative about the wait. First noticed the thorough clean down between table service..even the menus got a wipe. Then the food. Well first day I had the...open prawn sandwich, which was so good that next day I was back for the plaice goujons. Winner!! All accompanied by a solid french chardonnay. No room for the magnificent lemon meringue pie but the next table assured us that it was as good as it looked. This is a delightful lunch spot, relaxing with a touch of french bistro. Would equally be great for coffee and cake or traditional cream tea after a walk round the lake.More

Called into Treeby and Bolton Cafe for a hot drink and cake whilst staying in Keswick. I went for cappuccino coffee and fruit scone while my wife had tea and chocolate brownie and cream. Both drinks and good were very good. The cafe also houses...a gallery on the first floor. Well worth a visit.More

Myself and my partner visited the cafe this week and were very impressed, we were informed on arrival of the COVID changes and what foods they had run out of. I had an omelette with my partner having the giant sausage roll, with a tea...and a cappuccino, followed by bakewell tart and an orange and cranberry scone .. all were absolutely delicious and the staff could not do any more for you. Our only gripe were the toilets, whilst appearing clean overall, the toilets are unisex and unfortunately the user before myself had left the seat up but also some liquid on the toilet rim .. which put me off a little. As there were two separate toilets it might have been better to have separate female/male toilets to prevent these issues Overall we would definitely returnMore

Fabulous !!!! From we walked through the door we were made to feel welcome. The staff were really helpful and we felt totally COVID safe ❤️. Then we had our food and our experience went to another level ! The food was wonderfully presented and...tasted amazing ! We had lunch but spotted the cakes ( my husband had his eye on the lemon meringue ) . We had a lovely day in Keswick and called on the way back to the car for cake and a coffee and my husband got his lemon meringue ! This place is a little gem with wonderful food and just as wonderful staff ! We will return .More

just wanted to say how friendly and efficient the staff were today - despite all the extra things to do, with the covid restrictions in place, they managed to make us feel very welcome. We spoke to the manager and though she was busy, took...time to make sure we were completely happy. Lovely cakes too😊More
