Dipped ice cream was lovely and the gentleman serving us was very friendly and enjoyed a bit of banter with the children.

Great little coffee shop with amazing views of Windermere, right by the Marina at Ambleside. We had a couple of latte's and a blueberry scone, both really delicious, would highly recommend!

Lovely little coffee stop right on the edge of the Lake. Service was quick despite being very busy and the blueberry scones with hot rum butter are not to be missed. No toilets for customers which was disappointing and the nearest ones are the public toilets across the road which were not particularly clean and charged admission.

I visited with my family one lovely sunny afternoon and had a lovely view of the pier from the outdoor terrace. The blueberry scones were very tasty and the coffee was good too. The staff were friendly and helpful and we will definately return the next time staying in the area.

Although staff was very friendly, alas the food was less than average.
I had a cheese & ham panini, the bread had no taste, was not really cooked and so quite chewy in the mouth.
I had a slice of apple cake which had more apples than pastry. Apples had been simply boiled, cut in big chunks and thrown in there with no spices, sugar, nothing.
