Description: We are independent cafe with a craft bakery and guest rooms. Established in 1975 we are a family business situated in the heart of Ambleside serving hearty breakfasts, delicious espresso based coffees, wholesome lunches and indulgent afternoon teas as well as all the essentials for a packed lunch on the fells or by the lake. Everything baked on site daily. We use locally sourced ingredients where possible - local butcher & milkman and free range eggs as well as flour from a Cumbrian miller and tea from Farrers in Kendal. Our best sellers are Apple Pie (spiced or plain) and bath buns. 'Baking at its best in Lakeland'

I love this cozy place. Good value for the location, service is good and the vanilla slices are to die for. Never had a main meal here but their coffee is pretty good too. Worth a try but be warned, you won't walk away without taking a bag full of baked goodies away with you!

Always love visiting here, we go at least once a month. The food is excellent and service is great. It can be very busy so at peak times you might need to be patient but only because it's so good! The breakfasts are fantastic.

We had lunch at The Apple Pie and would definitely recommend a visit. We had the savoury sausage pie followed by the spiced apple pie and both courses were delicious. The only disappointment was that by the time we went to leave, they'd sold out of the Bath Buns that we'd hope to take away with us. Therefore, we settled for the gingerbread which we decided was probably better than the Grasmere stuff!

I have been here on a number of occasions whilst walking in the Lakes and both the food and service have always been very good.
The cafe seating area is deceptively large and the Bakery at the front of the building is very hard to walk past without being tempted with some form of treat.
