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 tasty cooked breakfasts every morning 8.45Am - 11.30Am, brunch and lunch from Midday until 3.00Pm and tapas and Italian style flatbreads 5.30Pm - 8.30Pm. 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 Live Music every Wednesday and Thursday from 9.00Pm.

“Illy coffee prepared ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2010

If you're looking for good coffee consider heading to Square Orange; Cafe 26 serves Illy coffee beans, which probably are the best mass produced and commonly available beans. However Cafe 26's barista did not deliver a good espresso with crema.

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2010

I went to this bar for a drink and something to eat on a couple of occassions. They serve excellent wine and the Tapas is brilliant too. The staff were all very good and attentive. I spoke to Georgina the owner. Who is a very nice person though a little unsociable unless you are a local. Still worth a visit for the drinks and food. It is also a nice comfortable place.

We didn't eat here as they were only doing tapas but had a drink after eating elsewhere. Great ambience and good service.

“Tapas and Pizzas now in the evening .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2010

Now doing tapas and pizzas for a couple of hours early evening .
Just spent an enjoyable evening with friends sharing a bottle of wine with tapas, cake, coffee.
The menu does change for winter - so worth checking first if going late in the year.
