A little gem! We popped in for brunch and my husband said it's the best fish finger sandwich he's ever had! Excellent food, very friendly and professional service, lovely setting. We will definitely be going back again.

Absolutely wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff and the coffee and cakes are delicious. I had the home made scones with clotted cream and jam and they were gorgeous. Will definitely be returning!

An impromptu visit after walking at Arnside Knott following a short dive to Kirkby. The cafe has a lovely look to it from the outside and the inside decor is warm and homely. Relatively small menu (split by time of day) supplemented by a specials...More
