We absolutely love Veeva, all food is fresh and tastes beautiful. We sometimes go on a Sunday for breakfast or for a gorgeous lunch another day. The staff are all friendly and helpful. Veeva is clean and stylish. We couldn't recommend this place enough.

Good coffee and lovely fresh scones. Generally visit here on Sunday afternoons as it seems it’s the only coffee shop open in Cockermouth. Nice spacious seating areas, friendly staff and good service.
