Another lovely lunch at GLP the special panini roasted red pepper, chicken, cheese with chipotle mayonnaise hit the spot perfectly and sat outside enjoying the sunshine made it even better.

We were trying to arrange to meet our friends from Carlisle and they said a great little place opposite the Little Theatre. So I said great I know the theatre so what's it called? So glad we eventually worked out what they meant. Relaxed and comfortable easy chairs. Prompt unobtrusive staff and good snacks and huge delicious cake portions. Highly... More

We come here so often and we just cannot stay away! The food is amazing, the drink service is superb, and the cakes are absolutely phenomenal. Whilst it's not super cheap, the prices are reasonable and their affiliation with the Autism charity is such a brilliant cause to donate to. I love looking at all the jewellery and artwork they...

Found this 'a Great Little Place' off the main street, such a wonderful change to find lots of vegetarian options, soya milk for my coffee and good service. A warm welcome from the staff and nothing was too much trouble, and the cakes! all looked amazing, lots of choice and generous portion size

I use this café regularly when I am in town so I thought it high time I reviewed it again. The staff are fab, the cakes delicious and the coffee which is delivered to your table the best in town.
