After a chilly morning sketching at Glasson Dock, it was great to retreat to this lovely cafe! The food was beautifully presented, generous in proportion and really tasty. The hosts were welcoming and I especially recommend the carrot cake

Called in for a Sunday morning brunch and was not disappointed. Very welcoming, spotlessly clean and a lovely atmosphere. Hubby enjoyed his breakfast barm and my pannini was delicious. I was especially impressed with the side salad and coleslaw. Would I recommend? Most definitely!

Licenced Café Bistro & Bistro by Night. With a complete renovation and new menu the current proprietors of the Lantern have truly shaken off its old 'chip shop cafe' persona. Clean, bright and welcoming the cafe bistro by day produces excellent breakfast and lunchtime meals and snacks whilst each Friday evening* it becomes a fine dining restaurant. Though staple favourites, that have become so popular, remain the menu has been updated to include a range of cosmopolitan lunchtime and evening meals plus all day snacks. Utilising wholesome and, where possible, locally sourced ingredients the standard menu is enhanced by seasonally inspired specials. Naturally you can also expect to find a range of teas, coffees and home and handmade cakes & pastries. *March to December
