“Wholemeal Bread Please”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Visited last week for breakfast and was surprised at how small the place is. Two 'local' ladies kindly gave up their seats so we could sit down. The service was quick and polite. The bacon was excellent and the eggs were cooked just as I like them.

Personally I don't like sliced white toast and was disappointed that that was the only thing on offer. I also would prefer a tea pot rather than a very large mug mainly because the liquid stays hotter for longer that way.

If you're not into bikes I think Abrahams has more atmosphere.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Visited three times (so far!) and each time I've been more than impressed. It is most definitely what Keswick needed; something a little different.
Food is lovely, staff are always lovely and the atmosphere is very welcoming.
Do not be put off by the fact it's a 'bikers caf' as it is very welcoming to all kinds of people.
Would definitely recommend :-)!
