“Nice cakes!”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

Visited here today for the first time and it will become a favourite!
Nice atmosphere, very clean and lovely staff.
We had coffees, I had the hummingbird cake, my husband had a hazelnut brownie and our daughter had a very generous 2 scoops of ice cream in a tub.
Great value - we will be back :)

Wobbly table, didn't like their coffee and a choice of scone scone or scone. Lovely position next to a brilliant play park but won't bother with it again.

“Call for a coffee”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

This Cafe in Fitz Park Keswick is run as a training cafe for people with special needs and it is really good. Great tea or coffee, excellent sandwiches, scones and cakes. A good place to visit for a light bite or for lunch. The staff are personable and the cafe is very clean (as are the toilets!). It is very close to a very good kids play area and there is a good area outside in good weather. It only opened this year and I couldn't find fault with it.

“Well worth a vist”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Visited twice now, both times extremely busy. It is well worth the wait. The staff are lovely, the food is excellent! You have to try to lamb wrap, it was so tasty. The homemade cakes are to die for. Keep up the good work.....
