Welcoming cafe with great food at breakfast, sandwiches and full english. The staff provide great service in a nice environment right in the centre in Windermere. Started to get busy at 11:30 which for a wet day in November tells you everything about this place.

Found this cafe on a cold autumn evening. The staff were excellent, welcoming and friendly. The ambiance in the cafe is great and the Japanese cherry tea was delicious!

What lovely service from a very pleasant young lady, who was also very helpful and friendly. There were four of us and our breakfasts were delicious. Nice and hot and the tea and coffee were just right. One of us can’t eat beans or tomatoes...More

We dropped in to this cafe for a morning coffee. It had a very pleasant ambience and the coffees were good. My cappuccino was better than most I'd had recently. The slice of cake was tasty but disappointingly small. Service was friendly.

You'd be best directing your question to the cafe itself. Give them a call? Paul
