The food is fab (we had tapas) and retuned the next day for cake & coffee. George is warm, friendly and funny. Great place.

We visited here as part of our trip to Keswick. They have a good selection of drinks and food. We went for a some Rose Sangria (amazing!) and a beer. Nice atmosphere and good service. Would recommend if you're in the area :)

We always visit Cafe 26 for tall the above reasons. We feel sometimes the portions of food can be small for the price they are charging but it's usually pretty good.

Popped in for a coffee with my teenage daughter but ended up having lunch. What a nice spot. I had creamy scrambled eggs and she has no. 26 sandwich. Pleasant staff and nice surroundings. Will definitely come back. Would recommend.

Popped in for some much needed food after a 12k walk. Fantastic service, very polite and friendly staff. The tapas we ordered was amazing! Definitely recommend a visit here if you like good, tasty, valuable food. Try the cheese, bacon balls! YUM!!

This was our 3rd visit. We live locally and wanted to support local restaurants. The first visit 15 months ago was excellent. Unfortunately the further 2 visits have been disappointing. Tonight more so. Food is over priced for the quantity and quality. Curried cauliflower does...More

Hi Thank you for your enquiry. I am afraid we do not take bookings in the evenings unless it is for a party of more than 6. We usually do not have a problem with this though as tables tend to turn around fairly quickly... More

Located on a bustling pedestrian street in the heart of Keswick, close to the busy market square and shores of Lake Derwentwater, Cafe Bar 26 is a relaxed Mediterranean style cafe bistro by day and a vibrant wine and cocktail bar in the evening with a unique atmosphere.

We also serve great illy coffee, interesting wines, continental beers, cocktails and champagne all day long! Perfect after a day on the fells or simply a stroll around the shops.
