Cartmel Coffee Shop had Gluten Free bread but wouldn't make me a sandwich because it was frozen but she could toast it. So I said I'd like a toasted sandwich but she wouldn't do that either. All I could have was toast!!! I don't know...More

Very friendly staff and lovely coffee. We didn't eat there so can't say much other than the cakes looked nice.

Just loved the calmness, sat watching people walk by on the main street. The staff were friendly, the service very good, and the home made cake a delight. Great value and would recommend to anyone.

My wife and I both try to avoid milk and they were only too happy to make us lacto free hot chocolates which were delicious. There was also an impressive and irresistible selection of home made cakes which were gorgeous!

Cosy, friendly coffee shop in the centre of Cartmel. Serving home made cakes and scones, baked daily on the premises. We have a limited menu of freshly made sandwiches, a homemade soup of the day, hot 'brunch' menu. Eg smoked salon and scrambled eggs, etc. We sell take away cakes, sandwiches and our house blend teas and coffees. We have a selection of paintings by local artists and gifts made by local cottage industries.
