Regrettably don't know what a flat white is. It really should not be advertised on the menu. What we got was simply a white coffee!

We have eaten here lots of times after we have walked from Ambleside. The food and service never fail. Lots of great choice including lovely homemade soups and cakes. They take dogs as well. Definitely the best place for lunch in Grasmere.
