“Good, honest cafe food”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Offers a very traditional range of cafe food, from welsh rarebit to 'a bit and a sup' and with a vast selection of different tea's and organic beverages. A very quaint old fashioned cafe with heart warming, quality food.

“The perfect place for coffee and tea - cakes too!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Olde fashioned vegetarian tea room in Ulverston. Soups and light meals available and excellent teas, coffees and of course cakes. We opted for cheese and fig chutney toasted sandwich and brie and cranberry both of which were very tasty. I opted for the Honduras blend coffee - very good. A great place to unwind on a cold winter day.

“Lovely tearoom to meet friends”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Met friends here for afternoon tea, and couldn't fault it. Service was excellent, very friendly staff. Selection of cakes is very impressive, and of the one's i tried, they were delicious. Would recommend for a break from shopping in the town.

“Lovely Tearoom, good value.”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Visited here whilst on a trip to the lakes

It was well priced and the service was faultless

The tea was good and my cheese toastie lovely. The carrot cake was excellent too.

Only downside (for me) was that is is vegetarian and I do like my meat! That being said there are still plenty of tasty lunches on the menu.
