Welcoming cafe with great food at breakfast, sandwiches and full english. The staff provide great service in a nice environment right in the centre in Windermere. Started to get busy at 11:30 which for a wet day in November tells you everything about this place.

No you don’t have to book. We do get very busy towards the weekend though so may be advisable.
