You must visit the compact and bijou but perfectly formed 'Edelweiss' cafe in Carnforth! Home cooked food, freshly prepared when you order - the Goulash Soup is a hearty meal in itself. Service is friendly and quick, pity they didn't have more tables, busy lunch session so best to book ahead. Highly recommended!

This is the place to eat in Carnforth, pop in, you will not regret it, food if home cooked, Be warned seats are limited and you may need to book in advance even for breakfast, but well worth it.

I ordered a small breakfast which arrived with toast, it was absolutely delicious. The service was extremely good and the cafe was very warm and comfortable. Papers are even available to read.

I came here with my mum and Auntie Jean after visiting Carnforth station. The walls are decorated with lovely cuckoo clocks! I have always loved cuckoo clocks, and so it was lovely to eat and watch the little cuckoos pop out at various intervals. The food was lovely. The café has a lovely friendly atmosphere with a sense of fun.... More

Stopped off in Carnforth en route to Arnside for a light late lunch. We chose a toastie with our coffee and ended with a selection from the homemade cakes. Everything was fresh and delicious and the staff great. Highly recommended - well worth a visit and easily accessed from the Booths car park behind the Café.

Food could be OK, if you can get a seat. If you aren't on first name basis with the owner you won't have a reserved table, usually a 4 seater for 2 people. If by chance you get a table you'll be on a tiny table .

A character filled amd popular little cafe where service and a smile seem to matter. The owners clearly have connections to Austria or the German tiroll. with specialities on offer and the walls adorned with cockoo clocks and memrobilia. A lovely place to stop for a meal or refreshments.
