“Baby-Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

We've been to the Lime Lounge several times and it's our favourite cafe in Bakewell. The interior is modern and spacious with enough room for buggies/prams etc. The menu is perfect for lunchtimes - soup, paninis and cakes. The staff are excellent too - very friendly and accommodating, especially when it comes to babies and small children. A nice change from all the touristy/old-fashioned eateries in town.

Poppee in today for the first time. Just had a latte (best I've ever had). Great service and selection of papers. Food looked amazing, wish id had more time on my hands so I could have stayed for some. Will definitely be back soon

“December 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

We live in the peak district and often test out coffee shops in our area. The Lime Lounge is the best we've found anywhere. The hot chocolate is the best we've ever found outside of one place on the river in York. The coffee is proper filter coffee so I don't have to have watered-down espresso, and is a decent size and comes with a nice biscuit. They have a reasonable selection of cakes etc - flapjack was also good.

Service has been excellent, atmosphere and decor is modern, clean and pleasant, and if you like to people-watch, there is nowhere better in Bakewell than the seats at the window of the Lime Lounge.

Current opening hours are 0830-1630 Mon-Sat, 0930-1600 Sun. Takeouts also available. Prices were comparable with most other coffee shops, just this one is well above average for what you get for your money.

Haven't yet tried the food.

“A Little Gem in The Peak District”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

After a tiring day walking round the beautiful village of Bakewell we came across this little Cafe. Although it was busy, we were quickly shown to a table by a quirky and talkative gentleman and within minutes he cleaned the table and recommended a one of the many Cakes on offer. I had hardly returned to the table when it arrived along with one of the best Cappuccino's and Chocolates we have ever tasted. All I can say is if you call in the Lime Lounge it will be the icing on the cake of an unforgettable day out in Derbyshire
