Wonderful cafe, we only stopped for tea and cake but wish we had room for more food! It looked amazing, the cake was one of the best Victoria sponges I have tried. Staff super friendly and welcoming too

Great breakfast food all day in Ambelside!! I got the freshly baked vegetarian quiche which was extremely good amd came with a side of salad and crisps. My partner ordered a bacon and sausage bad that was also really good. We both had some incredible smoothies! I highly reccomend stopping by if you are in town. It has 5 tables outside, each with it's own umbrella to ensure shade. The owner and waiters are extremely nice!

We couldnโ€™t have picked a better place to enjoy our breakfast. In front of the entrance are couple of tables where guests can also enjoy their time in the fresh air. Warm welcoming staff, attentive and looked after us very well. I found my English breakfast to be very satisfying. I ordered Veggie option. Food was nice and freshly made, came swiftly, also great portion size. Perfect place. Go check it out!
