How much do we just love this little place????!!!! Gutted that it wasn't open on Tuesday but we returned yesterday after a long walk. Amazing food - always, and really cosy surroundings. Yesterdays smokey black beans were just gorgeous as was the soup. Really friendly and the best little place in Ambleside. Love it xx

Great cakes and friendly service. We were lucky to get a table on a busy weekday but so pleased we tried!

we had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed the fact that for once we had a WHOLE menu to chose from! Then how wonderful that everything we had was beautifully presented and extremely tasty - huge portions beware! So great value and lovely friendly staff. We had just arrived in Ambleside and this was the perfect start to our weekend away............Thank you

Stopped off for coffee and cake after a long walk. Service was great - very welcoming - and we lived both the scone and white chocolate & raspberry cake ... Delicious! Well worth a visit!

Been back a couple of times since new owners took over the cafe and happy to report it is still as good as ever. Lovely home made cakes and freshly prepared food. Portions are very generous and even if you are not a vegetarian the cheese on toast is a really good choice, with a very good side salad. Service as ever is very prompt and friendly and you don't have to wait too long for your food. Remember this is cafe is only very small and it can be difficult to get a table, they only serve vegetarian food and they only accept cash. But if you can get a table you won't be disappointed.
