Abraham's is always our first choice when looking for a cafe in Keswick. Friendly local staff, good food, and views out over the fells. Rucsacs, muddy boots and wet waterproofs no problem so a great place to end a walk!

Abraham's Cafe is hidden away at the top of George Fishers Keswick store. The stairs climb is rewarded with a selection home made foods from soup to cakes served along with quality drinks by friendly staff who are used to serving outdoors types with dripping waterproofs and it is rightly a popular spot especially at lunch time. Highly recommended.

Hello Roger, Wet clothes and muddy boots don't bother us! Its a bit of a trudge to the top of the shop, but the views and food are definitely worth it! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Victoria More

Nice staff, good setting, decent views, reasonable prices. However, the hot chocolate was insufferably sweet. You could barely taste the chocolate. Ruined the experience for me.

What a view from this wonderful cafe perched on the very top floor of George Fisher's. Very clean with really friendly staff along with the best homemade marmalade make this a true gem.

This is a real treasure - a cafe at the top of a gear shop staffed by friendly and efficient local ladies who really give excellent service. The hearty soups they offer are almost a complete meal in themselves and extremely tasty, and we also recommend the delicious hot apple and cinnamon drink. There is an excellent range of snacks...

We always come here during our regular Lakes trips, simply because of the excellent food at reasonable prices, always welcome after a tough trip around the lower 3 floors of George Fishers. The broth of the day is excellent value and tremendously tasty, with plenty of meat and fresh vegetables, a real healthy meal in itself. Combined with lovely staff... More

We make a habit of stopping off here either in the afternoon for a relaxing cup of tea or a bowl of soup or broth after a walk if we are back early enough - always good simple food served with efficiency and a smile.

We love to come here with our family whenever we're in Keswick. The food is always high quality, the service friendly, and the cake moist. The kids can also play in the play area below and the adults can take it in turns to browse George Fishers. What's not to like?
