Very nice to get something honest, tasty and very reasonably priced. Basic no-frillls food, served quickly by great staff. We sat outside and enjoyed the view whilst eating, and finished off with huge chunks of excellent carrot cake. Recommended.

Stopped by for breakfast and we weren't dissapointed. Excellent food and everything you need to set you up for the day before heading off into the hills. Would recommend a trip here as most other local establishments don't offer a great breakfast selection.

You can sit outside with homemade cake and tea and marvel at the views of the Borrowdale valley. What more could you want? Very friendly. Great place!

I Think we must have visited on an off day after reading the reviews here. Wet dreary day in June just after 10am. No choice of coffee other than black or white. Surely everyone offers Cappuccino, Latte etc these days. Toasted tea cake was clearly...More

Absolute classic: a slice of authentic Cumbria served on a dinted plates with oddly matched crockery, purchased from an old climber's cafe in a farm. Looks like it's straight out of beartrix potter. Great views, reasonable prices. Perfect place to fuel up to before exploring...More
