No wheelchair access at either cafe, and crowded inside. Nice coffee and lunches, though nothing gluten-free.

This is a long established coffee shop on Lowther Street in Whitehaven, opposite St Nicholas Church. I haven't been there for ages and decided to try it again when on a recent trip to the town.

When we entered noticed how busy it was, which is always a great sign in my opinion. Soon found a table, and noticed a great selection of lunchtime treats on the menu. There was also a blackboard with specials on it - noticed that they were all competitively priced at around a fiver. They also do a great range of flavoured coffees and chocolates, similar to a national chain, but they costa lot less.

My friend ordered the Shepherd's Pie special from the friendly waitress, and was given the option of having it served with or without cheese. It was served with a side salad, was piping hot and absolutely delicious. I ordered the Christmas baguette, which was filled with Turkey, stuffing and Cranberry, again this was served with a side salad. Both were under a fiver. My Latte was as good as one from the chains, if not better. Was vaguely tempted by the delicious array of sweet treats but decided not to at the last minute !

Friendly staff, good quality food, and quick service made me remember that this was a great (La) Venue, and I would definitely recommend it - my return will be a lot sooner.
