We couldn’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!

Best place to eat your breakfast in Ambleside! Found this café though Google suggestions and this place didn’t disappoint! Very friendly welcome, meals were on time and the ambience was perfect! A must visit if you want to have a good English breakfast and of course, tea! ❤️

A great welcoming, family run cafe. I had a lovely and generous full English which was delicious. Plenty of different options on offer from soups, home made quiches, cakes and vegetarian options. Very attentive and friendly staff that leave you wanting for nothing without hassling you too much! A great start to the day.
