You are always guaranteed to be served great food and delicious home made soup at the Abbey Caffe. Their coffee is also very tasty and always piping hot. Try the hot chocolate on a cold day to warm you up.

A lovely stop adjacent to Furness Abbey. A great selection of food and drinks. A chance to fill up before tackling the abbey.

Usually busy in this very popular cafe, we pop in when walking around the Abbey area. Soup and rolls, toasties, home made scones and cakes. Lovely after a walk warming up with a good cup of coffee and cake.
