Stumbled into here with boasts of so many different types of hot chocolate, and they did not disappoint. Two hot chocs and a big slice of cake for £8 bargain! Warm and friendly service, definitely will return next time we are in Kendal

Amazing hot chocolate, cake and ice cream! Currently experiencing a chocolate coma. Me and my boyfriend loved it! Hot chocolates were so tasty and big I couldn’t finish drinking it. Fudge cake was amazing. I couldn’t decide between two flavours of ice cream so I...More
