Second time we've been here now, excellent food, coffee and cakes, we even took some home with us. The girls that run this place are great, excellent teamwork, very friendly and welcoming.

Will definitely be back when we're next... More

I think I would class us as regulars, we go probably every week and have never had a bad experience! The coffee is the best in town by a mile and the food so fresh and tasty. The only down side is it is too small and sometimes we can't get in!!

My favourite place in Cockermouth for an adult coffee. Bright, warm welcome. Gorgeous coffee. Lovely food! The only downside - Sometimes struggle to get a seat!
