We always stop here for refreshments when we are walking around Monsal Head at weekends. Pricey but friendly, very clean and good food and drinks.

We spend much of our free time in this lovely area and always gravitate towards this cafe. Even if this place were underground with no windows we would go back for the cakes alone! The Lime and Coconut was a particular favourite. Great views too!

I'm suprised by the negative comments here, particulary the one about racism because I've visited this cafe many times over several years with groups of friends from China, Taiwan, India, Iran, Iraq and other places and we've always found it to be friendly. Some shortbread once arrived at our table on the house which was a nice gesture. The food and cake is always nice although a bit on the pricey side. The craft shop inside the cafe makes an interesting addition. The location is stunning, my favourite place in the Peak District and my favourite cafe.

Thanks for the comments. I've eventually decided to respond to the racism one if only to help explain but it still saddens us even now. See you soon.

After a long walk with the family this place did the job nicely. Definitely worth a visit for some good food. We’ll be stopping by again.
