The generously large full english breakfast was splendid after a long rainy day on the hills. The cafe is walker and dog friendly. All in all excellent food and coffee made by fantastic welcoming staff. One of the best Café's in Ambleside.

Of all the establishments in Ambleside this is the only one that I can think of with such a wonderful panorama of the nearby fells. The view comes with warm friendly service and great food so well worth the effort.

We had the spicy tomato soup with a roll and can honestly say that this offers the best value for money in Ambleside. Great views over the rooftops and the cleanest cafe I've ever seen!
