What a great little cafe! Even the locals outside were helpful telling me about the traffic wardens. The staff here clearly love what they do. From the second we walked in we were greeted by a pleasant smile, helpful attentive staff that were keen to look after their customers. We ordered the soup and Sandwich each and a coffee each....

The lady of the café was a most attentive and lovely woman- a true treasure for the county. We had hot breakfast -which was delicious and were made to feel welcome and comfortable with checks that all was well and a man also offered everyone re-fills for coffee and we had extra hot water for refreshing the Teapot. We then... More

My husband and I popped in here for a quick lunch after a day out walking. Lovely, simple homemade food and delicious cakes. Really good value too and friendly service ! Would recommend for anyone. Free refill of filter coffee was a pleasant surprise and just highlights how lovely the people and this place is ! Don't miss it !

Great food and service - very happy - everything about the breakfast was top quality and there was plenty of butter for the toast so you weren't trying to save it for the next slice! :-) Loved to hear the bacon and sausages were bought from a local butchers too! Very happy - will definitely return. Lovely little café and... More

Stopped off for a coffee and so glad I looked around before choosing this place! The coffee was lovely and so was the homemade fresh scone. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. There are not many tables but definitely worth waiting for one. Will definitely be back to this little gem next time I visit the Lake District.

We ate here today The service was very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. The food was very good value for money: all home cooked nicely presented with good quality ingredients. Nourishing after a walk. Highly recommend!

Wonderful welcome, service and cake. As a family of six we had a great selection of cakes all of which were moist and really lovely, topped off with a couple of scoops of Lakeland ice cream.

We called in for a reviving pot of tea. It was excellent, a real quality brew. The cakes were delicious,all eaten in a very cosy atmosphere. A place that is definitely worth a visit.

During a recent visit to Windermere, I searched reviews of local Cafes for a lunch stop. Brambles popped up and I set about locating it. This cafe is only small but do not let that put you off. As soon as you step inside, the staff are very friendly. The lady serving (who could well be the owner) said hello... More
