We had coffee and cakes here. Portions are generous and cakes clearly home made and all the better for it. The staff were welcoming without being overbearing, in all a lovely atmosphere.

Note, I originally posted this under the cafe name "Food in the Fells" by mistake. I believe this is the new name for the same place.

Called in here as it’s just on the edge of the town so it wasn’t packed out with customers. Ordered three jacket potatoes, and the plates were full, the side salad was fresh and there was plenty of it and all at a reasonable price.
The staff need a mention too as they were super friendly without being too full on.

Would recommend to others and would certainaly eat here again.

Best breakfast in the lakes by far. Would 100% recommend this place if you like a full English. My partner and I stumbled across this gem on our way home and were blown away. Great customer service and lovely food.

We were walking into Ambleside centre from the ferry and happened to come across this café as it was on the main road. Everything on the menu was freshly made which is unusual these days. We both chose the Quiche which I would really recommend. It had just been cooked and was the best quiche I have ever tasted. It is just enough if you don't want a huge meal. I resisted the selection of home made cakes and then regretted that later as they looked mouth watering. Maybe next time! The waiter was so friendly and chatted to us whilst we were waiting for our food. The frozen fruit smoothie and strawberry milk shake was superb. We have tried other cafes in Ambleside but this is one we will definitely be going back to in the future.

Walked from Grasmere after having read about this place, it was perfect, the food was fabulous and great value, staff very welcoming and helpful. Homemade cake taken away for a later snack was also fantastic.
