“Expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Paid £2.30 for a pot of tea as per the menu. Came with pot of tea, additional water and 1 cup. Next day ordered tea for two. Same thing came to the table but with the addition of an extra cup. Charged £4.60. Shame as this was one of the best places to visit in Keswick.

It just goes to show what good value our pot of tea for one actually is!

Rather than buy 2 sets of teapots (one for a single cup and one for 2 cups) we decided that it was more efficient just to use the same larger size pot for both; there is a difference when they different sizes are served – a pot of tea for one comes with 2 teabags and a small jug of extra hot water, the pot of tea for two comes with 3 teabags and a larger jug of extra hot water.
That said, whenever we serve pots of tea we always point out that we’re more than happy to supply extra teabags and/or hot water over and above those initially served.

Pleased to see that you think we’re one of the best places to visit in Keswick – hopefully we’ll see you again in the future.

Regards
Andy

“Lovely lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch at Abrahams today w a friend,wish I'd have found this little secret sooner!!

We arrived just before midday,our order was taken promptly and our drinks arrived soon after, my rarebit and accompanying salad was delicious,my friend had Halloumi salad w homemade pesto which was just divine :)

Will definitely be making more trips to this hidden Gem in Keswick .

“Lovely cafe- service just not as it was”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I really love Abrahams cafe, the food is outstanding- faultless and is a favourite place to eat whenever I stay in Keswick- which is on a regular basis! However the only thing to improve on to make this little treasure of a cafe perfect- in my humble opinion is to sharpen up on service! Having to sit and wait 10- 15 mins on a regular basis to have an order taken- even when the cafe is not busy does this otherwise little gem a big miss service! I do not usually like to complain- but this is a regular occurrence....I am one who really appreciates good customer service! It is a shame as once the food and beverages arrive they are always worth waiting for- which is probably just as well!

Thanks for the feedback regarding speed of service; I will pass it back to my colleagues in Abraham's.
One reason that our service may not be super fast is that all food is prepared fresh in our kitchen; there's nothing on our menu that is "microwaved" and served as our own work. That means getting orders from kitchen to cafe may take a little longer than other places in town. That said, I'm delighted to know that you think it's worth the wait!

“Great Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Looking for somewhere to have lunch whilst visiting Keswick I looked through Trip Advisor reviews and settled on Abraham's. A great ample lunch was had by all at a very reasonable price. The portions were generous and the service was excellent.
