Graze has a great range of food, delicious sandwiches, flat breads and other stuff. Even the garnish on my plate was delicious. Great range of coffee and speciality hot chocolates too. Service was attentive and friendly.

Think you may have reviewed the wrong venue as we do not serve wine.

A diverse menu for whatever you fancy, from avocados to banana pancakes, or even a full English. Quirky setting which isn’t overcrowded but still within reach of the main town and lake. Eat in and take out options, and most importantly, great tasting food (breakfast,...More

Very tasty food! A range of vegetarian and vegan options, we had a falafel flatbread and a toasted hallumi ciabatta sandwich which we both found delicious. Polite and friendly service. Would definitely recommend for vegetarians and vegans.

Hi, your question is not very clear but our menu is not solely vegetarian, we do have meat dishes on the menu and a number of our dishes can be made vegan, gluten free or dairy free.

Description
We are one of the smallest independent coffee shops and cafes in Bowness and operate as a two-man team. Our coffee is award winning and roasted in Cumbria, our teas are loose leaf and our hot chocolate is made from award winning solid chocolate. All of our dishes are prepared on site to order and we pride ourselves on offering deliciously different dishes created with the highest quality products served in a relaxed environment. We stop serving food 30 minutes before closing time and, during busy periods, dishes may sell out. Due to our size we are unable to take reservations.
