I came here with my mum and Auntie Jean after visiting Carnforth station. The walls are decorated with lovely cuckoo clocks! I have always loved cuckoo clocks, and so it was lovely to eat and watch the little cuckoos pop out at various intervals. The food was lovely. The café has a lovely friendly atmosphere with a sense of fun.... More

Stopped off in Carnforth en route to Arnside for a light late lunch. We chose a toastie with our coffee and ended with a selection from the homemade cakes. Everything was fresh and delicious and the staff great. Highly recommended - well worth a visit and easily accessed from the Booths car park behind the Café.

Food could be OK, if you can get a seat. If you aren't on first name basis with the owner you won't have a reserved table, usually a 4 seater for 2 people. If by chance you get a table you'll be on a tiny table .

A character filled amd popular little cafe where service and a smile seem to matter. The owners clearly have connections to Austria or the German tiroll. with specialities on offer and the walls adorned with cockoo clocks and memrobilia. A lovely place to stop for a meal or refreshments.

This is a lovely cafe to visit. Whether it's to just stop by for a drink or have some lunch. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is of good quality and good value for money. It was lovely that we had the choice of sitting outside on a nice sunny day.

Called in for my brother's 30th wedding anniversary meal. The staff were all friendly and welcoming, the service was excellent, the food was fresh and delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. I would recommend it to anyone, either local or on holiday. Thanks for a lovely afternoon
