“Homely Cafe, but a little basic.”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Staff greeted us warmly, and served us quickly,
The food was just OK. I had the 'Afternoon Tea' - tuna sandwich came with white bread and a strange garnish of 'undressed' large pieces of lettuce, with sliced tomato - would have looked nicer with a few mixed leaves and a couple of cherry tomatoes, with a simple salad dressing. The fruit scone was good, but the serving of jam was a little on the sparse side.
Homely atmosphere, although it was a really cold day and it wasn't much warmer sat inside either. The look of the place from outside and in is nice - the food is a bit on the bland side.

“************* Best In the Area *************”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

This Cafe is quite easy to find, it is behind the Church in a row of shops and it is well worth finding. It is run by the owner who actually does the cooking and baking so there's a plus straight away.We had the afternoon tea which comprises of sandwiches, tea or coffee and cream and jam scones, all of the food was delicious but the scones, they were absolutely fantastic.The waitress was a pleasant girl who gave good attention to what we wanted and the service was good, pleasant room, clean and comfortable but it was the food that did it for us, fantastic. We've tried several of the others in Bowness but this is the one for us now, well recommended.

“What a find!!!”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

Just off the beaten track but well worth it!!! What a little gem of a cafe me and my family have found. The cup cakes and scones are the best I have tasted in a long while. Definitely a time to forget the diet. We will be going back next time we are in Bowness.

“Great cakes and great service”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

The proprietor Stephen does all the cooking including the home baked cup cakes and scones, which are truly delicious. Pleasant surrounding and friendly attentive service make this our favourite place to spend time in Bowness - especially when it's raining! Kevin and Susan.
