Friendly cafe serving delicious bacon baps in a flash. It is usually open 7 days a week, but during November they are closed on Thursday. Would certainly recommend a visit.

This is a warm, friendly place with attentive service that provides just the kind of fare for the traveler in search of refreshment. I had a lovely pot of tea and a delicious buttered crumpet and felt like I was back in the Potwell inn...More

Spendid cafe with a good choice of menus. It is very popular with residents as well as visitors to Arnside, and does well despite the competition from the Big Chip Cafe next door, which is also excellent.

Nice little restaurant with nice views of the bay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Good lunchtime menu with large selection of cakes and scones if it's just a quick pit stop required. Toilets very clean.Outside tables as well
