Went for lunch after reading positive Trip Adviser reviews. We were not impressed. The lunch menu is limited, so we just had soup. One was uninteresting, one was salty. They only accepted cash (this was not advertised as far as we could see). The service...was prompt.More

A varied menu which is reasonably priced. Everything was fine rather than amazing but it was value for money and there was a good choice. We ate savoury but some of the cakes looked delicious.

This was our first visit to these premises and went based on excellent reviews. We weren’t disappointed. Went at lunchtime on a Tuesday and it was quiet when we first went in but soon got pretty busy. We both had prawn Marie rolls and baguettes...which were delicious. These were accompanied by side salad and crisps. Portions excellent too. We both had lattes and the best I’ve had for a while. They cater well for coeliacs. Service great and they also accept Dine Cards which was a bonus. Please be aware that it’s cash only. Can highly recommendMore

On a trip advisor review came here and was not disappointed. Ordered a savoury cheese baguette and a tea. Hot baked baguette, lots of very tasty filling plus crisps and a side salad. Wish I had room for the home made rice pudding! Staff welcoming...and helpful If visiting Carlisle you must pop in. You won’t be disappointed.More
