This really is a lovely little tea room that offers loads more besides. The tea is served in beautiful vintage china but there is nothing remotely twee here. The cakes, all homemade looked delicious. We had the best carrot cake ever, ever. This place has feel you want to bottle & take home for everlasting cosiness. We will certainly be back.

After a day out on my bike i popped into the little green shop Temporary Measure. Over the years I have been in most cafe's in Keswick and can say hand on heart that this is the best by a country mile. Endless cups of tea washed down with delicious cake !!! all serve with a smile
What an end to the day, can't wait to return.

We live in Cumbria and have been going to Temporary Measure for years (more so in the Autumn/Winter months). I travel quite a bit, yet this place in my home city can be held up as the standard for service and quality! You can not beat a Sunday mornings pot of tea in this place. If you get the chance to visit.. GO, don't pass this place up! We Love Temporary Measure

Last week I went to Temporary Measure and had a perfect cup of tea and cake. The tea was great and served in proper china cups! I would also recommend the home made cakes - especially the chocolate cake which was fantastic. The 'emporium' is a delight with a brilliant selection of quirky cards made by the owner Emma. I'll definitely go back!
