Wow... what a gem we found after a round of crazy golf that is a 1 minute walk away. Family owned cafe by mother and son with fantastic and enthusiastic waiting staff. Car park around the back.

Amazing place, everyone is very warm and welcoming. We went with our dog and he had water, treats and cuddles. Everyone was very understanding about his behaviour since he is a puppy. Food was excellent! They care for every single detail! Smoothies are amazing coffee is very good and the cakes are lovely. The only regret is not going there earlier in our holidays. TL;DR don't miss this if you are in Ambleside
