Made to order sandwiches and lovely cakes. The BLT here is just great. Clean, welcoming cafe that is always busy. Staff are efficient and very friendly. Bonus for the clean toilets with pass code door for customers only.

Went today and was surprised on how good this place was! The staff were brilliant and very helpful. The soup tasted brilliant and the sandwiches were jam packed with fillings. Thank you we will be back.

On entering Café Treff, we were greeted with a very warm welcome by Berni, the owner. After a lovely chat, we ordered lunch, a variety of sandwiches and cakes and of course a lovely pot of tea!! many varieties are available. Food was delicious. Sadly we didn't manage to return, but would certainly recommend it. All staff were very friendly.... More

a repeat visit to our favourite little cafe in Ambleside. Ideal as a pick up after a walk with a great selection of 'proper' tea and some wonderful food. Thoroughly recommend the goats cheese and cranberry muffin and chocolate, fruit and nut slice. Just need walk it all off now!
