Reviewed September 17, 2012

Poppi Red is our favourite tea and coffee shop in Hawkshead. They off a decent cuppa as well as a nice selection of cakes and the staff do their best to please.

“Lovely food but pricey”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We stopped here for lunch whilst visiting Hawkshead. The shop and the cafe are lovely. The food was nice but we felt is was a little overpriced for what it is. The staff in the kitchen were lovely and even offered to make a salad for my gluten free son, although he chose the gluten free brownie!!! The waitress was not friendly and could learn from the ladies in the kitchen and in the shop. I would like to visit again but I'm not sure my bank balance could take it and maybe next time we will make a packed lunch.

“OK for a quick stop”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We found it a bit cluttered and decaf coffee was way too strong, but choc cake was lovely. Didn't linger long.

“Lovely cafe”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

This is a lovely little cafe in Hawkshead, with a good menu for cakes and drinks. It is also licensed. Not many tables, and can be a bit cramped when busy, but very nice nontheless. the shop in the same building has a good selection of gifts too.
