“Excellent cake!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We visited yesterday on a wet and windy day. Lovely hot mocha for four of the group. The server made me a smaller version which was great as I find the mugs too much! One of our group is on a visit from Spain and thought that the fudge cake was the best he had ever had. Another does not consider a visit to Keswick complete without a visit to this cafe. Personally we would prefer it to be assistance dogs only but can understand why it isn't given that everywhere in Keswick seems to allow dogs in.

I visit this cafe regularly and always find a welcome for my dog. The coffee and cakes are great and the staff helpful and friendly. Keswick is very dog friendly but this place is very welcoming

“Chocolate stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

We always have to call in here for either chocolate shots (melted choc in a choc cup) or if we've got more time then the chocolate kebabs (strawberries and marshmallow skewers dipped in melted choc). We love heading here on a rainy day and having chocolate and coffees upstairs while the kids can mess about drawing etc.. Lovely place with very pleasant and friendly staff.
