“Upstairs Cafe - It's across from the co-op and it's upstairs”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

When visiting Bakewell this is the cafe we always plump for. We have now been three times and have never been disappointed. It is always busy and this time we had to wait for a table. We all had something different from the menu, including pasty with mushy peas, a lasagne, cheese and onion toastie and a child's cheese and tomato pizza. All were good and reasonably priced. Puddings were available for about £3.50 but though looking delicious we didn't partake. Would always go back and would recommend trying if you're in the area.

“Our first choice in Bakewell”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I've been to this lovely cafe on my last 2 visits to Bakewell. Both times I've had a large group of muddy walkers with me and we've always been made to feel welcome by the friendly and helpful staff.

The food is great value, well prepared and served quickly. I'd have no hesitation in recommending the Upstairs Cafe and will definitely return next time I'm walking in the area.

“Lovely cafe - support this local cafe!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Visited back in December 2012. Lovely coffee and the walnut and coffee cake was Yummy and moist - it was a massive slice! Service was excellent and the prices are good. I have heard that a large American multi-chain coffee shop is coming to bakewell - i hope this doesnt effect the business for this small, local, friendly local cafe.
