Okay choice of snacks and drinks and good seating but overpriced for what it is. Clean quick and friendly and they have a short season but would fare better if they had a fairer pricing policy

Hawkshead is quite an expensive village to eat. Naturally Hawkshead Cafe is more reasonably priced. Friendly, efficient staff and food of a reasonable quality. Did not try any of the large variety of cakes but they looked great, including gluten free options.

After a long walk we decided to have lunch at this café. We had sandwiches on ciabatta bread and thought that they were very nice. Food and drink prices here are typical for the area. Service was fine. Recommended.
