“Great little coffee shop”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was the first thing we saw in a main street of Ambleside after walking along the 'coffin route' from Grasmere, so we were always going to go in for a coffee and to rest our legs. But it was more than just adequate - really great atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, and most important of all, great coffee and snacks. What's not to like?

“Probably the best mocha in the world!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Great coffee. Relaxing and pleasant ambience. Cheerful staff! Centrally situated. Perfect for a breather after a day on the fells.

“Good coffee, good surroundings”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Visited as a family this afternoon. Good coffee and treats in nice surroundings. Downstairs was packed but we almost had upstairs to ourselves.

“Fab coffee shop”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Brill place, fab teas and coffee, and the most amazing cakes. We spend every new year in Ambleside and Esquires is the first port if call after a long walk for a hot cuppa and slice of cake. Mmmmm

“Best local coffee shop”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Doesn't really need reviews as it's always packed, but it's great. Does nice filter coffee and has lots of free papers and Internet.
