Description: Located on a bustling pedestrian street in the heart of Keswick, close to the busy market square and shores of Lake Derwentwater, Cafe Bar 26 is a relaxed Mediterranean style cafe bistro by day and a vibrant wine and cocktail bar in the evening with a unique atmosphere. Feeling peckish? We serve brunch and lunch Tuesday - Sunday 10.00am - 4pm and tapas 4pm - 9.00pm. We also serve great illy coffee, interesting wines, continental beers, cocktails and champagne all day long! Perfect after a day on the fells or simply a stroll around the shops. There is also open mic night every Wednesday from 9.00pm. We are closed Mondays.

Very modern bar with good ambience. excellent tapas-the best I have ever had (including in Spain!) The food was so good (and reasonably priced) that we visited twice in our 4 day visit to the Lakes

Smart modern cafe/bar in Keswick. Nice surroundings and some tasty tapas to try. Live music when we visited. Good alternative to traditional pubs.

Cafe 26 was really impressive, the food, the decor, the staff, the ambiance, the whole thing.

The people behind are clearly passionate about the cafe and it really comes across, we had both lunch and breakfast there and each meal was excellent. My only regret is that now I'm a father of a 3 year old my days of sitting around drinking red wine and eating tapas are over (well for a while anyway)

Portions here are very small . A big breakfast was one sausage , one toast, one egg, half a tomato , two rashers of bacon and a teeny tiny portion of beans . The veggie breakfast was equally small and the sausages over cooked. For this distinctly average meal we paid 6.95 per person . I'd go somewhere else if I were you .
