The only place open early one Sunday morning when we were out with the kids. Had cake and coffee (the kids had juice, obviously). Hit the spot, tasty enough. Glad it was open!

Had lunch here today with my husband. Ordered him a burger with salad and a homemade quiche and salad for myself, a cup of tea and a glass of water. When the meals came they were both very disappointing with a burger that looked very sad, both salads were poor with little imagination and mainly consisting of lettuce but my... More

Nice coffee shop within the Hawkshead shop, serves great coffee and a selection of hot food and cakes and you can take your dog in good on a wet day

We dropped in here straight off the bus after a long journey up from the South East. Only a few others around so we did not experience any of the issues mentioned regarding slow service. We were served with a smile and able to find something for everyone (including one member of the party who is Gluten Free). Food was... More

On our recent visit to Hawkshead on a walking holiday, we paid two visits to 'Naturally Hawkshead' on the same day. It is attached to the large clothing store there, but feels separate enough to make it an enjoyable place to visit. On the first visit we had breakfast there. I had a full Cumbrian cooked breakfast, and it was... More

Great ice cream.... however staff are very slow and never look happy. They seem to just stand about and talk between themselves. We waited once 20 minutes for somebody to serve us. Think the staff need a talking to as this is no good for a place that gets busy. If there was somewhere else for ice cream Id go... More
