Second year visiting this little cafe. I think this is a family business and they certainly know how to look after their customers. Being a vegetarian, its great that this little gem of a cafe offers a great choice of food, and so scrummy. Visited today and had a rattle gill salad, which comes with a good chunk of lovely bread, beautiful food, good value for money, friendly and ambient. Its a place we always visit when we return to ambleside. Excellent! Thank goodness these places still exist. Would highly recommend, especially their soya milk coffees and delicious cakes

I adore this little gem of a place. The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming and the food is awesome. The chilli is my favourite dish on the menu, it's such a hearty portion and tastes fab. I also love the taster plate of cakes.
The whole atmosphere is welcoming and cosy and you just want to return again and again. The only thing I dislike about the place is it's so busy I sometimes can't get in :p

Can see why this is the number one cafe.

Sitting by the stream with coffee and cakes soaking up the sun what could be better.

Popped in for some tea and scones and wasn't disappointed. This place has a lovely friendly atmosphere and the scones were lovely. Although we didn't have the soup it smelt really good.
