We just called in for a cup of tea and liked the look and feel of the place so we came back for Lunch. We love going to places where we see the owners working so hard to really make a success of their business. The Saddleback Café is exactly that, the owners are there grafting and really succeeding in serving good home cooked food ranging from a Full English to a tempting Risotto. I have to say a particular mention about hygiene, I have never ever seen a kitchen so spotlessly clean, everything is open plan and screams mint. The décor is very tasteful and eclectic, it was a pleasure to sit there and enjoy the little experience.
Keep it up you deserve the success, oh and regards to Olly.

Imagine you (or a member of your family) are (is) dairy intolerant and it's your (his/her) birthday. You want a cake but know that it will be so hard to find one. Not in Keswick.
What a find. Wonderful dairy free cake that was so light we thought it was going to float. Baked to order, on time (called in on Monday to order and cake was sorted for Friday - exactly when we wanted it), very reasonably priced and served by lovely people who were run off their feet due to the number of customers!
Worth a visit.
PS Three of our party recommend the banana and honey smoothie and cheese scones too.

After spending a day out in the village of Keswick, we called in the Saddleback cafe with the dog and family. The surroundings of the cafe were warm and welcoming and we were greeted by the staff. Once sat down we were quickly attended to with polite and pleasant staff waiters/waitresses. Our scone and milkshakes were ordered and quickly delivered to is within minutes and they were fantastic! The milkshake was the best we've ever tasted and the scones were served warm and had a selection of butter, cream, strawberry jam, or raspberry jam. I was extremely satisfied with the quality of food and service I received and I would defiantly recommend it to anyone staying in Keswick because it is worth everything! Also the menu is reasonably priced and it is dog and family friendly.

This is an absolutely delightful little cafe. Great value and a cheesecake to die for with a very good pot of tea. Served a spare fork with a twinkle, magic. A brilliant stopover for cyclists with genuine passion

My husband and I walked from Bassenthwaite to keswick last week and as we crossed the bridge into Keswick we called at this cafe. We ordered a scone complete with jam and cream and chocolte brownie which came with a mixed fruit compote and cream. What was particularly lovely was the fact that the two cakes were served warm and I could believe fresh from the oven. the coffee which is roasted locally was excellent. we were made very welcome and the dog enjoyed the drink of water and a snooze.
